    President Joe Biden, who criticised former president Donald Trump as "macho" for making a speech from the White House balcony just after recovering from coronavirus last year, has warned citizens that July 4 Independence Day events may be cancelled if they ignore lockdown restrictions.

    US Vice-President Kamala Harris has been ridiculed on social media for exaggerated COVID-19 social distancing from a TV interviewer.

    Twitter users laid into the tittering Veep after here appearance on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, sitting twice as far as the six-foot precautionary distance from host Dana Bash.

    Some pointed out that Harris has already been vaccinated against coronavirus, along with President Joe Biden — and some claimed Bash had as well.

    ​The scene recalled Biden's unironically sycophantic post-election interview with satirical comedian Stephen Colbert.

    Bash asked Harris if she planned on visiting the US border with Mexico to witness the burgeoning illegal immigration crisis there — weeks after Biden appointed her as immigration tsar.

    "Yes, we're working on a plan to get there, we're working through COVID issues," the VP claimed. "I can't get there soon enough. That is a big part of what is going on."

    Biden recently warned Americans that July 4 Independence Day celebrations might be cancelled if they do not strictly observe lockdown restrictions.
