Kamala Harris may be the real vice president of the United States, but she hasn’t forgotten Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ fictional VP role, Selina Meyer, on HBO’s drama Veep. The politician took to Instagram to share a photo of her and the actress taking a smiling selfie together at President Joe Biden‘s state dinner and added a clever and funny caption. “Great to see you, Madam Vice President,” it read.
Shortly after Kamala shared the post, Julia took to her own Instagram to repost it along with an even more hilarious caption that was written while in character as Selina talking to her personal assistant Gary. “Gary, someone is using my @VP Instagram account. I think we’ve been hacked. CALL SOMEONE,” it read.
Once the post was published, Julia’s fans quickly responded with comments full of compliments and joy. “LOL! This is the best caption ever,” one fan wrote while another called the photo and caption “iconic.” A third wrote, “Legends supporting legends” and a fourth asked for her to post the photo that was being taken in the snapshot.
Kamala and Julia’s posts come after they both wowed at the state dinner with their fashion choices. The former wore a black dress that included a sequined top that went over the shoulder on one side and the latter wore a long sleeveless black dress. Julia showed up to the event with her handsome son Charlie Hall, 25, who wore a classic black and white tuxedo, and was all smiles as she held his hand while walking in front of photographers.
In addition to Julia, other world leaders and celebrities who attended the state dinner include French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron, First Lady Jill Biden, Stephen Colbert, Jennifer Garner, Jon Batiste, Chrissy Teigen, and John Legend. Like Julia, many of them brought their children along and shined throughout the night.
