Fox News host Jesse Watters believes he knows what is at the heart of Vice President Kamala Harris’ infamous laugh.
The vice president exudes a nonchalant attitude no matter what she is asked about– be it the border crisis, coronavirus aid, the vaccine–she just can’t seem to take some things seriously, and Watters has surmised her signature “cackle” response is really a “sign of discomfort.”
Watters went further and called the infamous laugh a “defense mechanism” on Friday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News Channel.
“As someone who made his career doing man-on-the-street interviews, I feel like I am uniquely qualified to recognize when someone is uncomfortable in public — and yes, this is a sign of discomfort when she’s presented with the topic or question, when she’s unsure or uncomfortable, she results to cackling,” Watters explained.
Harris has come under fire recently for her lack of response to the crisis on our nation’s southern border despite President Joe Biden appointing her border czar to handle the influx of illegal migrants. The media have noticed and begun asking the hard questions.

Watters noted that when Harris is faced with a question she can’t answer or doesn’t want to respond to, she will laugh to bide her time and lighten the tone of more serious interviews.
“In our industry, we refer to this as a defense mechanism. In layman’s terms, it perhaps would be a glitch in the system, a tick, or a ‘tell’ in poker and she does it for several reasons: One, to soothe her anxiety. Two, to buy her time if she’s unsure, she can use that time to formulate a response. Three, to kind of guide the vibe of the interview from a serious to a less serious one, and then finally, it is kind of a lame attempt to form a bond with the person asking her a tough question,” Watters analyzed.
Before the vice president ever made a trip to the border, MSNBC’s Lester Holt pressed her on why her team appeared to be slow-rolling their response efforts.
“And you saw this fail miserably with Lester Holt, who just sat there stone-faced as she laughed in his face about real issues with the border. And I have been studying when she does this,” Watters stated.
Harris’ exchange with Holt became terse when he was not softened by her laugh tactic, instead continuing to press on the tough questions.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border,” she finally told Holt, continuing on to say that she’d never been to Europe either and she didn’t understand the point that Holt was trying to make.
Watters points out that this defense mechanism is evident in almost every appearance or interaction the vice president has, which begs the question of whether or not Harris is comfortable in her role as second in command.
“She cackles when she’s asked the question about her relationship with President Obama. She cackles when she is asked about her ideology. She’s cackled also when she’s asked about her management ability, i.e., the border. And she also laughs uncontrollably in an audience setting where she’s not on prompter and she’s failing to connect with that audience. Those of the results of my behavioral, psychological analysis,” Watters concluded.
While Kamala’s days are loaded with lighthearted laughter, reports this week revealed the environment for her staff is rather grim. Their ideas are allegedly ignored or cruelly dismissed and leadership in her office refuses responsibility and blames the consequential negative outcomes on junior staff.
