Harris slammed for laughing off question about parents struggling through prolonged school closures

Vice President Kamala Harris was widely mocked and criticized for laughing in response to a reporter’s recent question about reports that undocumented migrant children in San Diego, California, received in-person education even as public schools remained closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among her harshest detractors was Fox News Channel personality Katie Pavlich.

“Kids are falling behind”

“I don’t understand what she thinks is funny,” the Outnumbered co-host said during Tuesday’s broadcast. “American parents are getting screwed.”

Pavlich went on to assert that “kids are falling behind and the very people Democrats claim to be standing up for, minority students, aren’t getting an education and aren’t going to be able to compete with their peers in the United States, not to mention the world.”

When confronted on the issue of parents forced to help their children with online learning because teachers’ unions are pushing to keep campuses closed, however, the vice president erupted into laughter during her response.

“We’re not paying them nearly enough,” Harris said, declaring affordable childcare “a big deal” before letting out a hearty laugh.

“Introduce them to the arts”

As recent reports confirm, a San Diego facility is opening with the goal of caring for hundreds of teenage migrants who have recently crossed the nation’s southern border.

The San Diego County Office of Education has agreed to provide volunteer teachers for girls staying at the facility. Meanwhile, San Deigo public schools are pursuing a plan to return to hybrid learning with a combination of online and in-person classes beginning on April 12.

Roberto Carrillo, a principal at the office of education, defended the program, stating: “We definitely want to introduce them to the arts, the visual arts and the performing arts.”

In a statement to Fox News, however, San Diego Supervisor Jim Desmond took a different stance.

“We have 130,000 kids who haven’t been allowed in a classroom for over a year in the San Diego Unified School District,” he said. “It’s great that there’s in-person learning for those unaccompanied minors from Central America, but I wish every child in San Diego County was allowed the same opportunity for in-person learning.”

  1. THE DEMOCRATS DON’T WANT THE KID TO GET A EDUCATION BECAUSE IF THEY GET SMART THEY WON’T FOLLOW THEM. KEEP THEM OUT OF SCHOOL AND THEY WLL FOLLOW WHATEVER THEY ARE TOLD. IF THEY GET SMART THEY WILL FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR THEMSELVES AND WILL TURN FROM BEING FOLLOWERS TO LEADERS. AND THE DEMOCRATS CAN’T HANDLE THAT, THEY ONLY WANT FOLLOWERS!

  2. Most educators do not go into the teaching profession to get rich. It is well known that teachers do not earn fantastic salaries. That being said, those that do enter the profession do it as a “Calling to help children learn.” If you want to earn the BIG BUCKS, I suggest you decide on another profession.
    These OFF putting jokes referring to teachers as baby sitters are not funny. In fact they are insulting to the teachers as well as the parents. Kamala Harris should think before she speaks (or LAUGHS).

    1. If a person wants to get rich, they should become a career polition…that group seems to be doing well.

  4. When you laugh “hysterically” it is NOT a hearty laugh….She obviously laughed because she had NO answer to the question, since what little she gave was far from enough, and this thing with just keep on hiking the pay does NOT work since all that does, is hurting those who are on a set pay-scale, since all prices on everything else will go up……….
    It is very OBVIOUS by NOW that this administration has NO idea of WHAT they are DOING…

    1. My granddaughter’s school didn’t close. They had the option to go to school or learn at home. Because she has asthma and it was winter, her parents chose stay home, however, she will be going back in person for the fourth quarter. Kids need to be with their friends. My grandson was in school a few days and the other days were from home. He still.gad cub scout meetings. Living in fear is not healthy. It lowers the immune system. Get outside in the sun for awhile each day. Be cautious but more importantly be happy.

  5. Anything she can’t answer she laughs off! I don’t get her at all! Besides being a total idiot,what is her problem?

  6. She must have been high Only an idiot would think that teachers in California should teach illegal immigrants instead of citizens children of this country get thrown away. Death can’t come soon enough for her. I hope her pot has fethanol it it.

  7. She laughs at everything that we find very unfortunate. Actually, she is laughing at us for thinking she is for America and the citizens. I wonder if she thinks it is funny when the illegals throw babies over the fence at the border, Then leave them on their own. If you think those babies and little girls are not molested, think again. There are way too many sick and evil predators in America. They pay big money for satanic purposes.

  8. It is time for parents to step forward on behalf of their children and DEMAND
    that the schools put American Citizen children ahead of all those illegally crossing the borders. Kids in America have been cheated by the school districts.
