Ha! Gotcha! A group of Puerto Rican musicians pranked U.S. Vice-President Kamala Harris in San Juan over the weekend. “Queremos saber que vienes a hacer, Kamala,” (rough translation: “Tell us what the hell you’re doing here, Kamala”) Another refrain in the song asked: “Tell us, what do you think of the colony, Kamala?” The musicians also called for a free Haiti and a free Palestine while protesters held placards calling her a war criminal. The Vice-President clapped along with the song, enthusiastically, until she was informed of the content of the lyrics. Way to go, VP, way to go. At least you knew when to stop clapping. Watch video above for the full effect of this prank.

During her visit to San Juan, US Vice President Kamala Harris was seen enjoying and clapping along to a Puerto Rico protest song, but she quickly stopped after her aide explained what it meant.

Following her speech at Puerto Rico’s capital, Harris made a trip to Goyoco community centre where she spoke with center personnel and community leaders.

Her convoy received greetings from a crowd of several dozen and protestors on the sidewalk. One person was holding a placard that read “Kamala Harris, war criminal,” while another marked the United States and Israel “genocidal”.

Later, Harris joined the group where a six-person group of musicians were playing a song. The US VP was caught on camera clapping and nodding as she enjoyed their performance, accompanied by a piano.

According to an X account managed by the Republican National Committee (RNC), Harris was clapping until an assistant beside her explained what the band was saying. While the woman standing besides the US VP is Mariana Reyes, executive director at La Goyco; the man is Frankie Miranda, the head of Hispanic Federation, according to The Associated Press.

The RNC said the band targetted Harris, asking, “We want to know, Kamala, what did you come here for?” The demonstrators also backed Palestine amid Israel and Hamas war, saying, “Long live Free Palestine and Haiti too!”As soon as the meaning of the song was conveyed to Harris, she stopped applauding and folded her hands.

  1. Kamala owes her career to being the girltoy of a certain married man, like Hillary Clinton owed hers to being Vil’s wife. In other words, political talent had nothing to do with it, because she never had that.
