After a question about a border visit, Meghan McCain chastises Kamala Harris for her “Joker Laugh.”
Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, chastised Vice President Kamala Harris for laughing when a reporter asked when she will visit the US-Mexico border given the ongoing situation.
When she was interrupted as she began to answer a question concerning the border, the conservative analyst stated the scenario was “not funny” and accused the vice president of laughing like a “nervous clown.”
“That jittery joker chuckle… Vice President, it’s not funny,” she tweeted on Friday. “None of it is,” says the narrator.
Harris was also included in an interview with the Spanish-language station Noticiero Univision, which the co-host shared. At the opening of the video, the vice president says, “I’ve said I’m heading to the border.”
The host of Noticiero Univision then interrupted her. She inquired, “When are you going to the border, vice president?” In the video, Harris responds with a nervous chuckle, “I’m not finished.” “I told you I was going to the border.”
“If we are going to deal with the difficulties at the border, we have to deal with the problems that cause people to travel to the border,” she continued in a longer clip. To cross the boundary. That is the root of the problem.
“So, my first trip as vice president of the United States was to go, in terms of a foreign trip, to Guatemala. To be on the ground there to address and be informed of the root causes. Why are the people of Guatemala leaving?”
Washington Newsday has contacted the White House for further comment.
Harris urged migrants not to come to the U.S.-Mexico border during a two-day visit earlier this week to Guatemala and Mexico, two countries at the root of migration to the U.S.’s southwestern border.
Speaking at a news conference on Monday, the vice president said: “I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come. Do not come.”
The message appeared to mark a shift in the administration’s immigration policy, and drew the ire of some progressives in the Democratic caucus. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said the statement was “disappointing.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib went a step further and referred to the Biden administration’s position on immigration from. This is a brief summary.
