Kamala Harris faces backlash after wiping hand right after handshake with South Korean president

Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to insult the president of South Korea on Friday by wiping her hands down her jacket immediately after shaking his hand, Fox News reported.

Was it rudeness, or lingering COVID paranoia?

Some critics suggested that Harris would have gotten more scrutiny if she were a Republican.

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

“You can’t wipe off a virus on your pants,” another Twitter noted. “Plus, Kamala is fully vaccinated.” Then again, this is the same Harris who was recently seen kissing her husband — in a mask.

Harris is less popular than President Joe Biden, and it’s not hard to see why. Biden, who is 78, at least has an excuse for his frequent gaffes, but Harris’ awkward moments seem to emanate more from her undisguised ambition and irrepressible contempt for those beneath — or even above, as this case suggests — her. As Fox notes, she has come under fire in the past for failing to salute soldiers while boarding Air Force Two.

Harris garners criticism over role

While Harris is taking criticism for her public indiscretions, a recent report that she “tracks” journalists who don’t “appreciate” her “life experience” provides a closer glimpse into her personality.

After her own White House bid collapsed spectacularly, Harris has only gone up since joining Biden’s campaign last year. It’s quite possible that she already views herself as the rightful president, as critics take note of the unusually significant role she is playing in the Biden administration.

Harris’s meeting with President Moon Jae-In raised eyebrows because of Biden’s absence, while inviting more speculation that Harris is taking on responsibilities traditionally left to the commander in chief.

At their meeting, Harris discussed North Korea and the so-called “root causes” of mass migration from Central America, which Harris and Biden have prioritized to distract attention from the southern border crisis.

It often seems that Harris acts like she stumbled into the White House by accident. If she is to take over from Biden some time in the future, as many expect, it looks like she may have a thing or two to learn.
