I can’t profess to be a fan of Donald Trump’s ‘nicknames’ for people he disagrees with. Having so stipulated, if he hasn’t yet devised a pet name for new Democratic Vice President-Select Kamala Harris, I’d like to recommend “Giggles.” In case you hadn’t noticed, when Harris is asked a tough question, she exhibits the annoying habit of affecting a phony laugh, as though the whole thing is a big joke.
That laugh was on display on June 18, when she was interviewed by late night talk show host Stephen Colbert about the prospect of becoming Joe Biden’s running mate. After Harris affirmed that she would be “honored” to be chosen and that she is 100% behind the presumptive Democratic nominee, Colbert threw her a curveball. Reminding her that during the debates she launched an emotionally charged attack on Biden over the subject of busing, he asked to her to explain her sudden willingness to serve as his second in command.
Beginning at 2:14 in the video that follows, Colbert asks:
How does that transition happen? How do you go from being such a passionate opponent on such bedrock principles for you, and now you guys seem to be pals.
Harris answers, “IT WAS A DEBATE!” giving each syllable mock emphasis, before breaking into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.
Here to refresh your memory is Harris’s assault on Biden, during which she seemed at times on the verge of tears.
In the words of Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee (Phony Kamala), Joe is…
➡️ Praised “two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the SEGREGATION of race”
➡️ “[O]pposed busing”

So how does one reconcile the Kamala of deep convictions with the Kamala who now sees a potential path to the big prize she was seeking all along? The only possible explanation is that she was acting during the debate or acting during the interview. Either way, she has exposed herself as a phony.
