CNN host Van Jones mistakenly identified the song Vice President-elect Kamala Harris walked out to before her speech on Saturday, and now people are dragging him on Twitter. 

"It was great to hear Kamala. I want to decode some of stuff Kamala did for the base of this party," Jones said on CNN after Harris finished her speech.

"First of all, she walked out to Beyoncé. Drop mic," he said. "The fact that somebody that's gonna be in the White House can walk out authentically to Beyoncé was amazing. People were going nuts about the walkout song." 

The only issue was that Harris didn't walk out to a Beyoncé song — she actually walked out to "Work That" by Mary J. Blige.

People on Twitter subsequently dragged Jones for confusing the two singers.

What a difference two years makes! COVID Czar Dr. Fauci is BOOED by fans before throwing out first pitch at Seattle Mariners game in stark contrast to his rapturous reception during the height of the pandemic

Dr. Anthony Fauci was booed by baseball fans on Tuesday as he threw out the first pitch in the Seattle Mariners game against the New York Yankees.

Fauci has seen a massive dip in his popularity since his meteoric rise to becoming a household name during the beginning of the pandemic, as over half of independent voters want him gone. 

'58.9 percent of independent voters believe Dr. Fauci should resign his position and role in leading the government’s COVID-19 response to allow for new leadership,' a poll by Convention of States Action showed earlier this year.

Those voters will likely get their wish -- Fauci said in July he would be leaving his post by the end of President Joe Biden's first term.

Dr. Anthony Fauci's pitch fell short of the plate and was several feet outside the strike zone when he threw out the first pitch in 2020 

The White House chief medical adviser improved his throwing arm but not his public perception and pitched far better than he did two years ago, but was received poorly by the crowd.

Fauci infamously threw one of the worst opening pitches of all time when he threw the first pitch of the 2020 MLB season in Washington as he watched the Yankees beat the Washington Nationals 4-1.

The immunologist threw an accurate lob to Mariners manager Scott Servais when he attended the game at T-Mobil Park, and signed Servais' mask afterwards.

Fauci was there to accept the Hutch Award, an annual award honoring Fred Hutchinson, a former MLB pitcher and manager who died from lung cancer in 1964.

The award is given to someone who 'best exemplifies the fighting spirit and competitive desire of Hutchinson by persevering through adversity, according to a Seattle Mariners news release.

Fauci is only the second non-athlete to receive the award after former president Jimmy Carter won it in 2016. 

Fauci, a native New Yorker, has served the US government for over five decades, holding a position in seven different presidents.

He has repeatedly called for stricter pandemic regulations, which have always drawn condemnation, but recently the horde against him has grown larger. 

He became the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a position he still holds, in 1984. From there, he led the nation through viral diseases including HIV/AIDS, Swine Flu, SARS, MERS, Ebola and ultimately Covid-19.

Fauci has spoken about his anticipated trajectory of the current pandemic and said 'I think we’re going to be living with this.'

'It’s becoming more and more difficult to get people to listen,' Fauci told Politico in July when he revealed he intends to retire.

'They’re going to try and come after me, anyway. I mean, probably less so if I’m not in the job,' he said on the possibility of a Republican-controlled House or Senate. 

'I don't think they can say anything about the science,' he said about Republicans in Congress calling for probes. 'If that's what you want to investigate, be my guest. My telling somebody that it's important to follow fundamental good public health practices … what are you going to investigate about that?'
