‘From the belly’: Kamala Harris admits people mock her infamous cackle as Drew Barrymore slobbers

An attempt at tackling unfavorables, found the vice president confronting the hyena in the room with a fawning daytime talk show audience.

Word salads weren’t the only feature of Vice President Kamala Harris’ laughable reputation as her own penchant for ill-timed chortles often scared up images of César Romero’s portrayal of the Clown Prince of Crime.

Now, days after CNN reported about focus group funding over recent months that uncovered the obvious, “Several people said Harris rubs them the wrong way, in all the ways that are familiar from criticism of her,” including specific mentions of her laugh, the next in line to the presidency tried to swipe at critics.

In a preview of an interview with Drew Barrymore slated to premiere Monday on the celebrity’s show “Drew,” Harris broached the subject of her infamous cackle with a focus on allegedly sexist criticism. “You were asking me earlier about what it means to be, like, the first woman. And, you know, it’s funny, because people still got to get used to this, right?”

“I mean, my staff, for example, sometimes they’ll show me little things that just amuse me. Like, apparently, some people love to talk about the way I laugh,” she continued prompting Barrymore to exclaim, “Oh yes! I love your laugh.”

“Well, let me tell you something,” continued the vice president in an effort to repair her unfavorable image, “I have my mother’s laugh. And I grew up around a bunch of women in particular who laughed from the belly. They laughed. They would sit around the kitchen and — drinking their coffee, telling big stories with big laughs.”

Harris even mimed being demure and covering her mouth as she insisted she wouldn’t change during her pitch of empowerment and added, And I think it’s really important for us to remind each other and our younger ones, don’t be confined to other people’s perception about what this looks like, and how you should act in order to be, right?”

From the time she laughed amid the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan when asked about events unfolding on the ground to an outburst in the fall over a different kind of tragedy in the American economy, the moments of the vice president’s hysterics have often been as disquieting as the display itself.

As such, with outspoken liberals like comedian and HBO host Bill Maher talking up tossing Harris off the ticket as part of an any means necessary approach to maintaining the White House, it came as little surprise that the vice president’s attempt to smooth over her own rough edges was received with added mockery from those already committed to the leftist cause.

In one instance, a social media user even wrote up a comment invoking Harris’ speech patterns and said, “Her crackling is annoying. We are burdened by what has been.”
