A friendly phone call is all too normal during Thanksgiving -- that is unless it's coming from the vice president-elect, herself.

Kamala Harris called a registered nurse in Chicago on Thursday to thank her for her work during the pandemic.

"I know it's personal for you, and I know that it requires mental and emotional and physical and spiritual energy and power that you give to it, so thank you," Harris can be heard telling Talisa Hardin in a video Bonnie Castillo, executive director of National Nurses United (NNU), posted to Facebook.

Harris posted her side of the call as well.

Harris reportedly also spoke to Hardin about the Defense Production Act, a 1950 law that could expedite the process of giving more resources and supplies to medical staff on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic, Castillo said.
