On August 23, a video of Vice President Kamala Harris went viral after people compared her laugh to Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker.’
Talk show host Meghan McCain was also one of the people who made this comparison. This video comes weeks after President Biden’s administration was criticized for its stance on Afghanistan. Now, the short snippet has gone viral on social media, with people sharing it on their handles.
Kamala Harris laughing video explored
The video of Harris laughing first went viral on TikTok. A user named @caspolnews shared the short snippet on the platform with the caption that read: “Kamala Harris issues her own statement on the crisis facing the Biden Harris administration over Afghanistan.”
In the clip, Harris was asked about her thoughts on the current situation at Afghanistan. To this, the Vice President laughs and says: “Hold on, slow down everybody.”
She continues: “I want to talk about two things, first Afghanistan. We couldn’t have a higher priority right now, and in particular, our priority is making sure that we safely evacuate American citizens, Afghans to work with us, Afghans at risk, including women and children, and that is one of the highest priorities right now.”
What did Meghan McCain say about the Vice President?
The video went viral and people, unsurprisingly, voiced their opinions. Amid this, Megan, who is famous for being the host on The View, tweeted out her thoughts.
She wrote: “This may be some kind of real issue (like Joaquin phoenix in the joker) but she’s the Vice President and she’s had ample time and resources to media train herself out of reacting to every SINGLE crisis situation like she’s walking onto a late-night show. She comes off so craven.”
Is the laugh a response to being nervous?
As per Fox News, Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway had once pointed out that Harris would laugh nervously when confronted by the journalists.
He said: “She does that thing where she laughs nervously when she gets the slightest difficulty or a question or topic and it is making a lot of Americans nervous.”
Psychologist Brian Russell explained it further by saying: “For many people, laughter is a defense from anxiety they feel when a situation or topic makes them uncomfortable or unsure of themselves.”
Harris hasn’t commented on these analyses.
