Social media users mocked Vice President Kamala Harris for seeming to adopt a French accent while visiting a scientific laboratory in Paris.
Harris made the remarks Tuesday while visiting a COVID-19 lab at the Pasteur Institute, as part of a goodwill tour to France.
While speaking to scientists at the lab, Harris slipped into a French accent while saying “the plan,” listeners claimed.
The V.P.’s trip to France came in the wake of sinking relations between Washington and Paris, following a U.S.-British submarine deal with Australia.
She said,“We campaign with the plan. Uppercase ‘T’ uppercase ‘P.’ The Plan.”
“The environment is such that we are expected to defend the plan. Even when the first time we roll it out, there may be some glitches, and it’s time to reevaluate and then do it again,” she added.
Now, I don’t know if that’s her just being completely awkward and not knowing how to interact with people, or if she’s literally doing a terrible, and rather rude “fake French accent.”
Either way, it’s really hard to watch.
