Former "View" co-host Meghan McCain scolded Vice President Kamala
Harris Monday for laughing when asked about the ongoing crisis in
Afghanistan, comparing the "craven" veep to Joaquin Phoenix’s mentally troubled character in the 2019 film "Joker."
Harris initially laughed when asked about the U.S. withdrawal from
Afghanistan and the controversial evacuation process as Americans try
to exit the country due to the Taliban’s swift takeover. Harris has a
long history of laughing when confronted with tough questions and
famously giggled on multiple occasions when she was asked about
visiting the southern border.
"This may be some kind of real issue (like Joaquin phoenix in the
joker) but she’s the Vice President and she’s hand [sic] 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," McCain tweeted to accompany video of Harris’ latest laughing
Phoenix’s "Joker" also suffered from uncontrollable laughter, sometimes
at inappropriate times. He was eventually driven insane and became a psychopathic murderer. McCain made the comparison after Harris burst
into laughter when a reporter shouted a question seeking her response
to reports of Americans being trapped in Afghanistan.
"Hold on, slow down everybody," Harris said while laughing. She
eventually answered the question but critics slammed her for appearing
to find humor in the questions.
The Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway said on "America's
Newsroom" in June that Harris "nervously" laughed when challenged by journalists.
"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," Hemingway said.
