A Russian politician slammed Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday in response to a viral clip where she referred to herself using the pronoun “she” and explaining to a group of people that she is a woman wearing a blue suit.
“Kamala Harris said that her pronoun is ‘she’ and that she is a woman,” Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov posted on Telegram. “In case she is not identified with one of the countless genders that have bred in the US over the past 20 years – from the so-called queer to downright fairytale creatures. So now we are in the know. The most intelligible statement for the entire period of her vice presidency.”
Harris was widely mocked on social media after speaking at a Roe v. Wade panel on Tuesday and using gender pronouns to introduce herself to others seated at the table.

Fox News reported:
An event with Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday featured her and guests at the table introducing themselves with their names, pronouns, and descriptions of their clothing, drawing both mockery and defense from media members online.
Harris led a roundtable about the overturning of Roe v. Wade and its effects on disabled people.
“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,” a masked Harris said while introducing herself.
Other figures at the table introduced themselves with such descriptions as, “I’m a Latina with blond highlighted hair, and I’m wearing a gray blazer over a black-shade dress,” and “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.” Another said, “I am a Black woman with curly hair, and I am wearing a vintage black and floral dress.”
Conservatives who often mock liberals for embracing the idea of sharing their gender pronouns had a field day with the clip. It’s common on Twitter to see progressives share their pronouns in their bios.
“When did Kamala become a biologist?” comedian Tim Young quipped.
“This is why the rest of the world laughs at us,” ex-journalist Beth Baumann added.
“And they wonder why ordinary Americans think these people have lost their grip,” National Review’s Dan McLaughlin tweeted.
“If she would repudiate woke inanities and move towards commonsensical centrism, she would be embraced by a majority of Americans. Instead, she just digs in,” the American Enterprise Institute’s Christina Sommers wrote.
