Kamala Harris panned for using ‘French accent’ to French scientists while touring Parisian lab. Vice President Kamala Harris went viral following her visit to a COVID-19 lab in Paris for appearing to use what critics described as a “French accent. During her overseas trip to France, Harris toured the Institut Pasteur and spoke alongside a group of scientists about the U.S.-France alliance on scientific research. She also made comments about how politicians should operate more like scientists. Harris then pivoted to what politicians do, mocking how they always stick to “The Plan” they campaigned on — but repeatedly appeared to change her dialect whenever she used that phrase. “In government, we campaign with ‘The Plan,’” Harris said. “Uppercase T, uppercase P, ‘The Plan!’ And then the environment is such we’re expected to defend ‘The Plan’ even when the first time we roll it out there may be some glitches and it’s time to reevaluate and then do it again.” The vice president’s remarks were panned as “cringe” on social media. Harris has been widely seen as the standard-bearer for the Democratic Party in 2024 if President Biden does not run for a second term, but polls have her viewed even more negatively than her boss.
