Kamala Harris Waving refers to a clip of California Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris waving to supporters before putting her hand over her heart. The clip became a reaction video on Twitter with captions describing moments of disingenuous pride or sadness and to mock Harris' proposed policies.


On July 26th, 2019, Kamala Harris attended a pro-union rally in Detroit, Michigan. During the rally, she waved to the crowd and placed her hand over her heart.[1] The same day, Twitter user @kbyrd2 tweeted the clip with the caption, "When he was a true sweetheart but you won’t be inviting him back over πŸ‘‹πŸ½," gaining over 10,000 retweets and 40,000 likes (shown below).


@kbyrd2's video gained over 9.5 million views over the following five days as it was used in multiple tweets making similar jokes about the video. Many of the jokes used with the clip describe moments where a person knowingly lies to another but tries to appear sincere. For example, Twitter user @quintabrunson posted the video with the caption, "16 year old me waving bye to my mom after she dropped me off at sleepover knowing I was about to change into some Charlotte Russe tights and hit a basement party with my girls," gaining over 2,500 retweets and 19,000 likes (shown below, top). User @bydre__ posted the video with the title, "When you tell your friends you gonna meet them at the next spot but know you are about to go home and get in bed," gaining over 8,000 retweets and 27,000 likes (shown below, bottom).

Others used to the clip to mock Harris' policy positions. User @FrederickTJoseph used the clip to mock Harris' recently-announced Student Debt Forgiveness Plan, gaining over 670 retweets and 2,500 likes (shown below, top). User @JBfromDC89 made a similar joke (shown below, bottom). The jokes began seeing coverage on July 30th, as Blavity,[2] Buzzfeed,[1] and Huffington Post[3] compiled examples.
