Report: Harris comes under fire for wiping hand after handshake with South Korean president

Vice President Kamala Harris came under fire on social media over the weekend, Fox News reported, after footage emerged that appeared to show her wiping her hand off after greeting the president of South Korea.

In the video, the vice president immediately rubbed her hand against the side of her jacket after a handshake with President Moon Jae-in. According to Fox, some on social media felt the move was “disrespectful” and even an “insult” to the South Korean leader.

Take a look:

“Double standards”

Although Harris spoke positively of the encounter in a tweet published Friday, she faced blowback from others on Twitter who insisted a Republican lawmaker would have been held to a higher standard.

“This is the USA VP?” one Twitter user inquired, according to Fox. “Not only disrespectful, but it would be ‘racist’ if this was a Republican, all over the news for sure… Double standards on full display.”

Another Twitter user debunked claims that Harris was concerned about COVID-19, writing: “You can’t wipe off a virus on your pants… Plus, Kamala is fully vaccinated.”

In her own tweet on the matter, Harris seemed happy with how the meeting went. She said the pair “discussed North Korea, global health, and how we can address the root causes of migration from the Northern Triangle.”

“We look forward to working with President Moon to address the challenges we face,” the VP added.

“Open border policy”

But while Harris may be hoping to brush off the awkward incident with President Moon, the rest of America isn’t quite so eager to let her repeated faux pas slide. Who could forget when the vice president laughed in the face of a reporter who asked when she would be visiting the southern border to see for herself the impact of the migrant crisis there?

In response, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, had harsh words for Harris, telling Fox in an interview that the border crisis is “no laughing matter.”

“I wish the vice president and president would come to the border,” Cornyn complained. “I’ll be glad to welcome them there to learn what I’ve learned, talking to the experts, the Border Patrol, Health and Human Services, as well as the local officials and stakeholders who are bearing the burden of this open border policy of this administration.” But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    Both Biden and Harris need to be impeached from the offices that they both hold now. They are not doing the job the American citizens want them to do for our country.
