Bare-faced Kamala Harris poses with masked-up school children

When it comes to being tone-deaf, Vice President Kamala Harris has few competitors and this bore itself out again this week when Harris appeared at Thomas Elementary School in Washington D.C., posing with a group of students sharing the stage with her.

The glaring oddity about the photo is that everyone in it is wearing a mask except the vice president. While much of the nation has moved in from the notion that wearing a mask is necessary to ward off COVID-19, including many Democrats, there is still an odd insistence on continuing to force children, the least at risk when it comes to the virus, to don mask, as seen in schools across the country.

If Harris did have a competitor, it would have to be media darling Stacey Abrams, who drew plenty of criticism for doing the very same thing — posing with a classroom full of masked children with no face covering. Clearly, Harris did not learn from that fiasco.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted in response to the appearance: “Kamala Harris: Rules for thee but not for me.”

U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., also shared that sentiment:

The vice president delivered remarks on the White House plan, which she labeled “the Biden-Harris Action Plan for Building Better School Infrastructure,” to upgrade public school facilities to make them more energy-efficient. She was joined by Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm; White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy; and Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.

Interestingly, in thanking teachers Harris said, “You are raising and helping to raise, along with the parents and the community, the future of our nation.”

A remark that may come as a surprise to parents, but captures the attitude the left has about our children and the role of education.

The Biden-Harris plan includes a push to invest in fully electric school buses and Harris remarked on the “toxic fumes” of the current diesel-powered vehicles used in many districts.

“Every day, millions of children ride on diesel school buses, breathing toxic fumes that can harm their health,” Harris claimed.

Her remarks can be heard in the PBS Newshour video below:
