PARIS – Vice President Kamala Harris is being checked for her choice of accent while visiting France on Thursday.
“We will defend, thee plan,” Harris said. “Thee plan!”
While speaking to French scientists at the Pasteur Institute, Harris appeared to be mocking the accent of French people who speak English. She is currently on a fence-mending trip to the European country and U.S. ally after the Obama administration cut France out of a nuclear submarine deal with Australia.
During her attempt to make a good impression of America with French leaders and scientists, she dropped a fake French accent. I
“One of the things people in politics and government should really take from the approach of scientists – scientists operate with a hypothesis. I love that,” Harris said earlier this week. “A hypothesis, it’s well-thought-out, it’s well-planned, they start out with a hypothesis and then they test it out knowing invariably, you’re trying something for the first time, there will be glitches, there will be mistakes.”
That’s when she went Pepe Le Pew.
“In government, we campaign with thee plan,” Harris said. “Uppercase T, uppercase P, thee 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.”
