On Monday, while in Greensboro, North Carolina, Vice President Kamala Harris tried to make a joke, but she failed—hilariously.
At the Guilford Technical Community College, Harris tried to joke as she discussed the American Jobs Plan. According to her, the administration would be making sure that the opportunities will be made “equally available to women as well as men.”
“Because there’s an interesting fact,” Harris suddenly said while trying to hold back her laughter. “In case you didn’t know, hard hats are actually unisex.”
“Everybody’s laughing,” she continued as she laughed. She was grinning from ear to ear, despite the crowd being completely silent.
“So now the best way—I also believe—to get a good job is through a strong union,” she added.
The joke itself wasn’t funny—in fact, it was cringe-worthy. But it’s hilarious how she tried to make up for her failed joke.
