The Emmy Awards took place over the weekend, and although “The Daily Show” did not come away with any honors this year on Monday, Trevor Noah announced the second annual Pandemmy Awards. 

Noah introduced various categories, including Best Original COVID Treatment, which has Ivermectin (aka the horse dewormer), which some have decided to use rather than getting the vaccine. 

Another category from The Pandemmy Awards is Best Historical Adaptation. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson comparing the vaccinated to the unvaccinated to medical Jim Crow is one of the nominees. However, he’s not the only media member with a nomination for this award. 

Candace Owens is also featured for her statement comparing the vaccinated to the unvaccinated to segregation. Other categories include Outstanding Achievement In Scapegoating and Best COVID-Supporting Governor. 

Anyone looking to vote on these awards can head over right now to the Pandemmy Awards’ official site. The winners will be announced on Sept. 28.

Vice President Kamala Harris plans to make her first in-studio talk show appearance since taking over the position early this year when she appears on “The View” this Friday. 

ABC announced that Harris will have an “exclusive interview discussing the latest on the COVID-19 pandemic such as vaccines, hesitancy, misinformation, and boosters.” She’ll talk to Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Ana Navarro.

Furthermore, she’ll be addressing some of the more critical issues facing the country today, including Afghanistan, immigration, and voting rights.

This won’t be the first time Harris appears on “The View” as it marks the vice president’s sixth time on “The View,” having joined the program during her time as United States senator for California.

Harris also becomes the second sitting vice president to appear on the talk show. In April 2010, “The View” made history when, for the first time, a sitting vice president was starred as a guest on the show when current United States President Joe Biden appeared live in studio.

NBC News correspondent Julia Ainsley defended Harris, adding that the VP is focused on her work with the Guatemalan government.

‘People aren’t listening. What is she saying now? Ruhle added.
