On Tuesday, Kamala Harris led a roundtable meeting, which she kicked off by introducing herself – but she didn’t just stop at her name. She announced her gender identity, sex, AND what she was wearing.

Harris introduced herself, saying,

“Good afternoon. I want to welcome these leaders for coming in to have this very important discussion about some of the most pressing issues of our time.

I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her. I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit.”

Harris, who has since received significant mockery from the Right, was not the only one introducing herself in such a ridiculous manner. Everyone, in fact, seemed to be introducing themselves in this way – some getting into even more detail.
The woman sitting to Harris’ right announced, “My pronouns are she/her, I’m a white woman with long brown hair, I’m wearing a red dress, and I’m wearing a see-through mask so you can see my red lips.”

Social media quickly exploded with people making fun of the hilarious introductions that were made.

Beth Baumann, a political commentator and editor at The Daily Wire, tweeted, “This is why the rest of the world laughs at us.”

Senior writer at The National Review, Dan McLaughlin, also commented on the clip, saying, “And they wonder why ordinary Americans think these people have lost their grip.”

Author Benjamin Weingarten pointed out that some of the participants were announcing their race as part of their introduction, saying, “Participants also introducing themselves by announcing their race. The anti-cultural revolution has triumphed over all the institutions.”

While many people have taken to social media to make fun of this introductory practice, others have jumped to Harris’ defense, explaining that these descriptions are meant to serve the visually impaired audience or participants.

Many have pointed out that this was implemented for the event since it is specifically for the disabled community, comdemning those who made fun of the absurd introductions. The event marked the 32nd anniversary of the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and was held in order to discuss how the disabled community would be affected by limited access to abortions.
