Kamala Harris slammed for laughing about border visit plan in viral video, Internet says 'all she does is cackle'
'Apparently, the border crisis is now a laughing matter for the Biden administration,' tweeted Steve Guest, special advisor for communications for Sen. Ted Cruz
Vice President Kamala Harris was slammed by Twitter after she was seen cracking up on Monday, March 22, after being asked if she plans to visit the southern border amid the ongoing immigration crisis.
The video in question was uploaded by Steve Guest, who is the special advisor for communications for Senator Ted Cruz. "Apparently, the border crisis is now a laughing matter for the Biden administration. WATCH: VP Kamala Harris laughs when asked if she has any plans to visit the border," he wrote in the tweet caption for the clip.
In the video, Harris is asked by a reporter on the tarmac, after she had descends from Air Force Two at Jacksonville, Florida, “Do you plan to visit the border?” To this, Harris answers, “Um, not today." Then she broke into a chuckle before adding, “But, um, I have before and I’m sure I will again.”

After the video went viral, it drew a number of negative reactions from people who agreed that Harris should not be laughing when asked about such a serious issue. "You are our VP? Oh my!" one of them said, while another wrote, "Some Joke?????" A third commented, "She's a nervous laugher. It's a real thing. I hate it. She's gotta work on that."
One person passed instant judgement and wrote, "She's got serious emotional problems." Another remarked, "She may as well have said 'I’m a coward that will not deal with a problem head on to solve it. So you know the answer to that! Hahahaha.'"

A bunch of tweets were obssessed with how she laughed and how the VP seemed to always laugh when asked any questions. "I call it a cackle......that’s all she does is cackle," said one tweet, while another said, "Christ, that cackle." One commentator groused, "She thinks everything is funny," while another noted, "She needs to stop laughing at every question." One tweet wondered if, "Truly there is no serious issue that can escape her cackle."

The video comes after El Paso Times reported last week that there are people who were forced by the US Border Patrol to return to Mexico with their infants. Officials said the border is closed even as the Biden administration is accused of not applying its “closed door” policies evenly in the key border state of Texas. “The border is not open,” Troy Miller, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Commissioner for US Customs and Border Protection, said, adding: “We are moving as fast as we can to rebuild, but this is going to take time.”
At the border between El Paso and Juarez, the Border Patrol has been expelling migrants to Mexico, including those from Honduras, Guatemala, Brazil, Ecuador and other countries, under the Title 42 public health law invoked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention a year ago to curb the spread of Covid-19 in border holding facilities. Under Title 42, the patrol is prohibited from holding people in “congregant settings”.
