Meghan McCain went after Vice President Kamala Harris and compared her cackle to Joaquin Phoenix’s “Joker” in the 2019 film.
“This may be some kind of real issue (like Joaquin phoenix in the ‘Joker’) but she’s the Vice President and she’s hand [sic] ample time and resources to media train herself out of reacting to every SINGLE crisis situation like she’s walking onto a late night show, the former co-host of “The View” tweeted Monday to her hundreds of thousands of followers, according to Fox News.

In the clip, the VP’s first reaction was to laugh when a reporter shouted to her what her “response was to reports of Americans” being trapped in Afghanistan. However, Harris immediately replied “hold on, slow down everybody” and then got serious and answered the question, the outlet noted.

“I want to talk about two things, first Afghanistan,” Harris shared, saying that the administration “couldn’t have a higher priority right now.”
“And in particular our priority is making sure that we safely evacuate American citizens, Afghans who worked with us, Afghans at risk including women and children,” she added. “And that is one of our highest, if not highest, priority right now.”
Phoenix’s character in the hit movie played a psychopathic murderer who would often laugh at inappropriate times, the report noted.
“Do you have plans to visit the border?”
