Secondhand embarrassment is real, folks! Don’t believe me? Just watch the clip below, as Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris has a “please clap” moment on stage.
While speaking at a town hall event in Nevada, the senator asked her audience if America is “ready” for her to be president. The crowd shouted, “No!” in response. Harris then turned and matter-of-factly said “Yes, they are.”
“In this election, in the last couple- I mean, maybe couple of months, certainly a few weeks, there’s this whole conversation that has been coming up about electability focused on our campaign,” Harris said. “Is America ready for that?”
Watch for yourself:
Not a good sign for Kamala Harris.
When Harris asked if America was ready for her presidency, the crowd shouted, "no."

Sorry lady, we don’t want a president who plans to destroy private healthcare, the Second Amendment, and also regulate your meat intake. (Which sounds like every single Democratic presidential candidate, huh?)
The exchange received mockery on social media, many comparing it to the memorable moment from the 2016 election when former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., urged a crowd at a campaign stop to “please clap.”
My ears are truly burning for the hot mess express, Kamala Harris.

Harris has seen a dramatic drop in the polls in recent weeks. In the latest Fox News poll, she received 7 percent of support among likely Democratic voters, while former Vice President Joe Biden maintains a double-digit lead with 29 percent while Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has 18 percent support and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., 16 percent.
Yikes! I’m calling it now: Donald Trump will win a second term! He has to! There’s no way America will elect one of these train wrecks!
