Kamala Harris roasted after she claps along to protest song – before realising they’re protesting against her
“We want to know, Kamala, what did you come here for? We want to know what you think of the colony,” the protestors sang, adding: “Long live Free Palestine and Haiti, too.”

Kamala Harris  is being roasted on social media after she was seen clapping along to a protest song – before awkwardly realising that they were protesting against her.

The  vice president  visited  Puerto Rico  on Friday to highlight the Biden administration’s actions in supporting the island nation’s recovery and renewal efforts.

During the visit, she stopped by the Goyoco community centre in the Santurce neighborhood of  San Juan .

In video footage from her visit to the community centre, Ms Harris is seen  gleefully clapping and smiling as Puerto Rican protesters  banged on drums and sang in Spanish.

However, Ms Harris’ cheerful mood came to an abrupt end when her aide appeared to inform her what they were singing about.

“We want to know, Kamala, what did you come here for? We want to know what you think of the colony,” the protestors sang, adding: “Long live Free Palestine and Haiti, too.”

Ms Harris swiftly stopped clapping, lowered her hands and assumed a more serious facial expression as the song continued.

The vice president was roasted for her blunder on social media, with one X user calling her a “clown”.

“Harris may be the dumbest VP in the history of our country,” they added.

“She’s her own parody,” another person wrote.

“This is a new low, even for her. This is also quite an embarrassment and reflects poorly on America,” a third person wrote.

During her visit to San Juan, which was marred by protests,  Ms Harris spoke to community leaders and centre staff, according to Fox News.

Before visiting the community centre, Ms Harris visited a residential home outside San Juan that was damaged during Hurricane Maria but has since been outfitted with solar panels and water tanks, through a federal program.

“What we all need to do then is just supply the community and the talent here with the capacity and the resources. And so President Joe Biden and I have been very intentional about what we are doing for the leaders and the people and the families of Puerto Rico. So far, our administration has invested over $140 billion in Puerto Rico,” Ms Harris said during the visit.

Her visit also came amid a push by  Democrats to boost their outreach to Latino voters ahead of the 2024 election.

Polling from late February showed President Joe Biden’s support among Hispanics has dropped by 12 points since 2020, from 65 per cent to 53 per cent, according to CBS News – representing the steepest drop in his share among demographic groups surveyed.


Puerto Ricans living on the island are not eligible to vote in the general election, owing to its status as a US territory rather than a state, although this November, for the first time, they will be able to cast a symbolic ballot.

“Legally, people in Puerto Rico are citizens with no power, with no political power in the federal system,” said Latino Rebels founder, Julio Ricardo Varela, ahead of Ms Harris’ visit.

“Now there’s plenty of people in Puerto Rico who want to become part of the federal system and there’s always a sector that does not want to become a part of it.”

Since then, she was asked if there would be consequences for Israel if Israel invaded Rafah.

She said nothing is ruled out.

Harris says US has not ruled out 'consequences' if Israel invades Rafah (msn.com)

Spin all you want- at least with Trump everyone would know where the US stood.

Unlike Brandon/Harris.

Drawing imaginary lines in the sand- just like Obama with Syria- that Israel is ignoring (Just like Syria and Russia did with Obama) because Brandon is a pathetic weak leader.

Brandon is pissing off Jewish voters (as well as the Jewish members of his own party) that reliably vote Democrat. As well as Muslim voters that do as well. That takes real damn talent to alienate both sides on the issue.

Don't worry the Palestinians know full well Brandon isn't protecting them from anything. All they need to do is look at the sky for the US aid packages literally falling on top of them. It is not nearly enough to help the 2 plus million starving Gazans that are also dying from exposure and lack of medical aid. (It is the thought that counts after all) I am sure Gazans aren't shell shocked enough from all of the Israeli bombs and missiles that have been dropped on them.

Maybe Brandon can throw in a few dead US servicemen/women with that temporary massive pier he is building at the port of Gaza as well? Can hardly wait to see of the aid sitting on the pier rotting in the desert sun and being blasted by salt water- because there is no way to distribute it inland. Neither Israel; nor Hamas; will give a shit about US soldiers or aid workers. They will be targets in large slow moving nicely marked vehicles. Each side will blame the other for any US casualties.

I didn't know the Palestinians were sacred. Let us find out now.

Let me record what we are seeing:

The only conclusion is it's okay here to deathwish Jewish people but not Palestinians.

Brandon would be impeached the second the first missiles fell.

Better do a recheck on the number of Jewish Democrats in the House and especially the Senate.

Yes, I remember the USS Liberty- which is the reason Brandon's ideas are asinine as hell.

If he was a real leader the mere threat of cutting off aid like Reagan did would be enough to stop Israel dead in it's tracks. Instead Brandon is being ignored. 

Democrats must be looking at Brandon in shock as he threatens their AIPAC money.

Since the song was directed at Kamala, they weren't insulted but were rather truths and facts.
