Vice President-elect Kamala Harris enjoyed some comic relief Saturday when a reporter asked for her reaction to the possibility of Donald Trump running again for president in 2024. “Please,” she responded, deadpan, before bursting into laughter — along with the journalists and spectators around her.
First, she made a “scoffing sound,” noted Atlantic reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere, who asked the question.
Reporters were tagging along as a masked Harris and husband Doug Emhoff shopped the outdoor Downtown Holiday Market in Washington, D.C., on Small Business Saturday to support retailers and workers amid the pandemic. They were joined by Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser.
