During a Monday speech in North Carolina promoting President Joe Biden‘s $2 trillion infrastructure proposal, Vice President Kamala Harris tried cracking a joke to the audience, but it did not appear to land.

“These opportunities are equally available women, as well as men,” Harris said, followed by applause from the attendees at Guilford Technical Community College, located outside of Greensboro.

As the applause died down, the vice president quipped, “Because there’s an interesting fact, in case you didn’t know. Hardhats are actually unisex.”

While Harris herself was laughing, no noise could be heard from the audience. A second later, she pointed to somebody in the crowd and said, “Everybody’s laughing,” and kept chuckling.

During her speech, she promoted the administration’s $20 billion proposal to convert the United States’ whole fleet of gasoline and diesel-powered school buses to electric vehicles, and to tout the president’s plans to create “good jobs,” according to The New York Timesreporting.

“I believe you shouldn’t have to work more than one job to pay your bills and feed your family,” Harris was reported as saying. “One good job should be enough.”

Her speech also comes amid a crisis at the border that has seen a record-breaking number of migrants—especially unaccompanied children—illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border, as well as overcrowded migrant detention facilities with poor accommodations.

Harris was tapped by Biden late last month to be the administration’s public face for the border crisis. However, she and the president have yet to visit the border or the facilities, which has drawn increasing scrutiny.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
