CRINGE: Kamala Harris Laughs Like a Hyena While Talking About Parent’s Struggle to Educate Their Kids Amid COVID

Share the Story :

During a recent speech at a childcare center in Connecticut, Vice President Kamala Harris had an extremely cringeworthy moment when she laughed hysterically about parent’s struggle to educate their kids amid the COVID pandemic.

Harris’ hysterical laughter was completely uncalled for and made little sense.

“I believe in that, that saying that in every crisis, there is an opportunity, if we see it for what it is,” she said. “This pandemic resulted in so much loss to human life, people lost their jobs, loss of normalcy, so much loss and devastation. And this pandemic was in many ways an accelerator, meaning for home, things were bad before they got even worse. And it also magnified then the fissures and the failures and the fractures in our system.”

“The opportunity is, more people are seeing that, yeah, affordable childcare is a big deal,” Harris laughed. “More parents are seeing the value of educators when they had to bring their kids [here] and say we’re not paying them nearly enough.”

KAMALA HARRIS, VICE PRESIDENT: But I’ll close by saying this. I believe in that, that saying that in every crisis, there is an opportunity, if we see it for what it is. This pandemic resulted in so much loss to human life, people lost their jobs, loss of normalcy, so much loss and devastation. And this pandemic was in many ways an accelerator, meaning for home, things were bad before they got even worse. And it also magnified then the fissures and the failures and the fractures in our system.

So, you say Kamala, okay, talk about the opportunity now, right? The opportunity is, more people are seeing that, yeah, affordable childcare is a big deal. More parents are seeing the value of educators when they had to bring their kids [here] and say we’re not paying them nearly enough. We started to talk about things like paid sick leave, and paid family leave, because guess what? We’re all in this together. So therein lies the moment of opportunity that we all collectively, I know, are going to take full advantage of in terms of saying, you know what, there’s consensus. We’re all in this together, everyone can see something that maybe only some of us could see before.

So let’s get to it. And let’s not be incremental. Let’s leapfrog over the problems and get into the next phase of all of this. Invest in our childcare workers, invest in our childcare centers, invest in our children, pull people out of poverty, agree that it is not okay in the United States of America that children go hungry. This is the opportunity before us right now. The opportunity to address long standing racial disparities in every one of these systems, be it health care, education, the economy, deal with the fact that over 2 million women left the workforce, in large part because of dual responsibilities and the need to address those responsibilities.

We are at a moment, I believe, that should cause us to have great optimism about what is possible. And we are all a part of it. So it’s Friday, it’s the second weekend of Spring, I left D.C. and I think the cherry blossoms are about to come out soon. And flowers are blooming and at least we see those little buds. And we have a moment where we can see kind of a Spring. So let’s go into this with all of the wounds we carry. But let’s go into it with a sense of optimism about what we are capable of doing when we do it together. Thank you all.
