Vice President Kamala Harris was in Poland this week, presumably in an effort to reassure our NATO allies that the United States is serious about playing a leading role in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
She was not successful.
"It would be a tragedy if this woman won the presidency," Ukrainian political adviser Iuliia Mendel tweeted in response to a video of Harris cackling hysterically in response to a reporter's question about what the U.S. was planning to do to help its European partners handle the influx of Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war.
Harris has a rather unfortunate habit of laughing like a maniac in response to relatively simple questions on topics of grave importance. Whereas most politicians of average competence would be able to maintain their composure without cackling uncontrollably, Harris has repeatedly demonstrated an inability to do so. She is an embarrassment to herself as well as to her country.
Mendel is correct. It would be a "tragedy" if Harris became president. Even her former staffers are terrified at the thought of Harris running the country. Alas, it could happen, given President Joe Biden's advanced age (79) and rapidly deteriorating physical and mental health. Mendel is wrong, however, to suggest that Harris could ever "win" the presidency. (She could not.)
