Kamala Harris Laughs When an Audience Member at Town Hall Called President Trump 'Mentally Retarded'

During a town hall in New Hampshire on Friday Kamala Harris laughed when an audience member called President Trump "mentally retarded."

How Harris claims that she did not actually hear the audience member when they called President Trump a retard.

"When my staff played the video from my town hall yesterday, it was upsetting," Harris tweeted on Saturday. "I didn’t hear the words the man used in that moment, but if I had I would’ve stopped and corrected him. I’m sorry. That word and others like it aren’t acceptable. Ever."

Here is video of the footage. She laughs immediately after the person called President Trump mentally retarded. What do you think?

"I heard him talk about the other stuff and then that came later and it was not something that I really heard or processed or I in any way condone. That's for sure," Harris said to CBS News Saturday.

She continued: "It's offensive and you would think that in the year 2019, people would have a better understanding of how hurtful a term like that can be; but also the history behind it, which is a history of really ignoring the needs and the realities and the capacity of our disability community."

That's pretty difficult to deny. She laughed immediately after President Trump was called mentally retarded.
