Vice-President Kamala Harris had to face the wrath of people online as she tweeted “America is moving again” while thousands of people were stuck on I-95 without food, gas and water for more than 24 hours. Among the victims of the massive traffic jam because of a six-vehicle accident Monday, January 3, was Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, who reached Washington, DC from Richmond in 26 hours and 45 minutes.

Speaking about his horrible experience, Hillary Clinton's vice presidential running mate in 2016 and head of the Democratic National Committee told CBS after reaching Capitol building, “The only thing I ate was one orange, and the only thing liquid I had was one 16-ounce Dr Pepper.” He also took to Twitter on Tuesday, January 4, and wrote: “Ok after 27 hours on the road from Richmond to DC, very happy to be back in the Capitol and working on voting rights legislation this afternoon.”

Earlier also before reaching his destination, Kaine had shared his journey with CNN. He said, “I do not have any liquid in the car. I drank two cups of black coffee yesterday morning for breakfast, and then i drank a Dr. Pepper when I stopped for gas at 4:00 this morning. That's all the liquids I've had since yesterday morning. I do have some popcorn in the car, but to eat popcorn without any liquid, I don't think that's a good idea. So now that I'm 90 minutes from the office, I'm planning on eating a lot, and using the restroom as soon as I pull in.”

And before speaking with CNN, in a series of tweets, he mentioned, “I started my normal 2 hour drive to DC at 1pm yesterday. 19 hours later, I’m still not near the Capitol. My office is in touch with @VaDOT to see how we can help other Virginians in this situation. Please stay safe everyone.”

He later stated, “A CT family returning in a packed car from Florida walked by in the middle of the night handing out oranges as we were stopped for hours on I-95. Bless them! I’m frustrated, but not in serious trouble. If you are in trouble on Virginia roads today, call @VaDOT at 1-800-FOR-ROAD.”

Kaine also talked about the struggles of survival while stuck on the road with minimum to no basic facilities. He said he even called the head of the transportation department and noted: “I was still in survival mode when I had that call. You know, at some point it switched from a miserable travel day into kind of a survival mode day for me. The roads are incredibly slick, and my car is sliding around and i don't have food or drink in my car, so I was more focused on, okay, how do I safely get out of this mess.”

“I'm not the kind of person that asks for anything special. I was calling to find out, hey, when are you going to reopen interstate 95. So I spoke to the secretary of transportation in Virginia, who's a long-time friend, about when different sections will reopen. First thing I asked is what's the emergency number that people should call to get help,” he added.

Kaine’s safe arrival at Capitol happened the same day when Harris was blasted for her tone-deaf tweet. As people were struggling to reach their destination, the 57-year-old shared that “Because of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, America is moving again. That's what infrastructure is all about: getting people moving.” In her post, she was talking about President Joe Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that according to the White House “will rebuild Tribal roads, bridges and rails, expand access to clean drinking water for Native communities, ensure every Native American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in Tribal communities that have too often been left behind.”

Slamming her, a critic asked, “Why, why oh why would anyone think this tweet is a good idea at the same time I-95 is trending for a 12 hour+ 30-50 mile standstill? Are you guys *trying* to write GOP midterm attack ads for them?” An angry user wrote, “Except for the people on I-95 in Northern Virginia. They’re not moving.” “‘America is moving again’?? Really? Your PR manager needs to get timing down a little better. Are you not aware of the situation on i95?” another one added.

A tweet read, “Do you have 7th graders, no I mean 5th graders running your PR? While people are stuck in snow on the Interstates, you speak about America moving again. LGB.” Another tweet added: “You don't have clue. The border is an example of people moving. I was on the 95 last night, that is an example  of stopping people from moving.  It's like you have the anti midas touch.”
