About

Kamala Harris Joker Vibes refers to a series of memes likening United States Vice President Kamala Harris to comic book character Joker, mainly over her manner of laughing. Sparked by a 2021 press conference video, the meme achieved recognition in 2022 after a video of Kamala Harris singing "The Wheels on the Bus" and laughing went viral.

Origin

On July 18th, 2020, United States Senator Kamala Harris appeared on PoliticsNation on MSNBC, sparking a rumor that she had undergone a cosmetic procedure or plastic surgery. On July 19th, 2020, X[1] / Twitter user @DadRyan2018 posted an image of Harris on the show next to an image of Jack Nickolson's Joker, commenting, "Did she go to the Joker's plastic surgeon?" The post (shown below) has since been removed.
