Vice President Kamala Harris has become known for breaking into awkward laughter and making embarrassing gaffes. However, this weekend saw what may be the vice president's worst performance yet.
Video footage emerged on Saturday in which Harris could be seen yelling wildly while speaking at a church in Tennessee.

If only they would practice what they preach.
It would be great if she had that same energy about conservatives who were/are silenced for years.

She was reacting to the expulsion of two Democratic Tennessee legislators this past Thursday. A vote was also held to expel a third lawmaker but the attempt failed.
The trio were targeted for their role in a riot on the state Capitol grounds last week by anti-gun activists late last month after a transgender individual murdered three students and three staff members at a Christian school.
"It wasn’t about the three of these leaders. It was about who they were representing. It’s about whose voices they were channeling! Understand that!" Harris hollering at her listeners.
"And is that not what a democracy allows?" She continued, "A democracy says you don’t silence the people! You do not stifle the people!" she continued.
"You don’t turn off their microphones when they’re speaking about the importance of life and liberty!" the vice president demanded.
Harris' words were met with derision from conservatives on social media, including Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, who suggested that the vice president could be guilty of inciting insurrection.

Meanwhile, former American Immigration Lawyers Association Board of governors member Matthew Kolken spoke up as well, noting that Harris seemed unconcerned by efforts to suppress coverage of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.
Then why was the Hunter Biden laptop story silenced?

Mike Davis once served as the Senate Judiciary Committee's chief counsel for nominations, and he called Harris "the loud, dumb, angry former (absentee) senator I remember well."
