The Democrat Vice-Presidential nominee Kamala Harris burst into nervous laughter when she was recently asked if she has a “socialist perspective” that she will advocate for if elected. The bizarre outburst occurred during an interview with CBS News anchor Nora O’Donnell on Sunday.
O’Donnell cited a 2019 ranking that put Harris as the “most liberal United States senator” because of her progressive policies. Harris has publicly stated her support for the Green New Deal, universal Medicare, and legalizing marijuana. O’Donnell asked Harris if she plans to incorporate these liberal policies if she and Biden are elected.

Harris told the news anchor that she promised Biden she would share her experiences as it relates to issues they confront. Which prompted O’Donnell to ask if that was a socialist or progressive perspective causing Harris to burst out in strange laughter.
O’Donnell asked the question after President Trump recently accused Biden of being a “Trojan horse” to push through socialist policies “from the left-wing of the Democratic party.”
“I am not gonna be confined to Donald Trump’s definition of who I or anybody else is,” Harris replied.
