KAMALA Harris appears to “feel powerful” with President Joe Biden, a body language expert has revealed as the vice president was acting president for 85 minutes.
Body language expert Patti Wood exclusively told The Sun that when Vice President Kamala hugged President Biden on the South Lawn at the White House earlier this week, she looked as if she “feels a little bit more power.”

Harris was seen hugging Biden at a November 15 ceremony where he signed the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.”
According to Wood, during Biden and Harris’ hug on Monday, the pair appeared to “have their cheeks pressed together” during the close encounter.
She explained: “You can actually see Biden squint at the eye, something which shows happiness. You can see the little lines come out.
“Even as you look at her face, the smile is lifted all the way up. And she’s even showing the space between the teeth, which indicates a joyous smile.
“So it feels it indicates that she might feel either more intimate, like friends and family with him and/or indicate she feels a little bit more power.”
Wood noted that Harris could feel like she’s family to Biden, “because we do that with our family members that we feel equal status with.”

The body analysis expert also noticed “how flat” Harris’ hand is.
“It’s not going down on the top of his shoulder but around at the back,” Wood said.
“Vice presidents don’t typically do that to the president. So again, it could be because she feels like we are family, and/or she feels a little bit more power.”
Additionally, a photo showing Harris alongside Biden and the first lady, shows the vice president standing in front of Dr Jill Biden, which Wood says is a “more powerful position.”
However, Wood doesn’t know if Harris was instructed to stand in that specific position.
In regards to Biden and Harris’ handshake, Wood said the president appeared as if he “doesn’t just want to shake hands.”
Wood explained: “The handshake is at that waist level and that’s sort of the for the ‘camera’s handshake.’
“But he’s also reaching his other hand out to touch her arm to make it more intimate.
“So he’s indicating, ‘OK, we’re shaking our hands for the cameras.’ I want to touch you to say it’s a bigger connection than that, but it’s a respectful touch.
The expert said Harris “scrunching up her nose” revealed she was feeling happy.
Harris and Biden were captured on video walking side by side, and according to Wood, it’s “very difficult to fake how you’re feeling about a person as you’re walking with them because it’s harder to hide what you’re truly feeling.”
Wood, who thinks the legs and feet are the most honest part of the human body, told The Sun that because Biden and Harris “have matching and mirroring body postures” and “upper-tooth smiles” that there’s “alignment and rapport” between the duo.
Even their matching “forehead lift” reveals an alignment.
BIDEN TEMPORARILY GAVE HARRIS POWERS
The body language analysis comes after Biden underwent a colonoscopy on Friday ahead of his 79th birthday and temporarily passed his powers over to Harris.
The president arrived at Walter Reed Hospital on Friday morning to undergo the invasive procedure.
A colonoscopy is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine and rectum.
While the president was under anesthetic, Vice President Harris took over his role.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement: “As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia.
“The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”
At 11.35am Biden spoke with Harris and Chief of Staff Ronald Klain to take back his power, according to Psaki.
She added that the president was “in good spirits” and that he will remain at the hospital to complete his routine physical.
Meanwhile, the Harris’ office has been plagued with reports of dysfunction and infighting, as one of her top aides has resigned amid the rumors.
