Sick Very Sick ..Gushing Drew Barrymore says Kamala Harris needs to be the 'Momala' of the U.S. in cringeworthy interview


In her bizarre interview with Vice President Kamala HarrisDrew Barrymore urged the vice president to be the 'Momala of the country.'

Stumping for President Biden, Harris joined Barrymore for an episode of her daytime talk show, which aired on Monday. Over the course of the interview, the two discussed many topics, including Harris's polarizing laugh.

Then, during a cringeworthy moment, Barrymore dubbed the vice president 'Momala.'

'I've been thinking that we really all need a tremendous hug in the world right now,' Barrymore said.

Barrymore, who had slid uncomfortably close to Harris on the couch, continued pleading with the vice president to become a 'mother' to the whole US: 'But in our country, we need you to be Momala of the country.'

Harris smiled and seemed unsure how to respond to the new moniker.  

'Yeah, I mean,' the vice president said without finishing her thought. 

Then Barrymore leaned forward and held Harris's hands while the audience applauded. The actress stared into the vice president's eyes with a soulful look, while Harris appeared to grow slightly uncomfortable.

At another point in the interview, Harris defended her laugh, and she implied that those who make fun of it are exhibiting a form of sexism. 

'You were asking me earlier about what it means to be like, the first woman [vice president],' Harris told Barrymore. 

'And you know, it's funny because people still gotta get used to this, right?' 

Harris then claimed that an example of lingering misogyny with the public adjusting to having a woman vice president is when people bring increased attention to her laugh or mannerisms.

'I mean, my staff for example, sometimes they'll show me little things that just amuse me. Like, apparently some people love to talk about the way I laugh,' Harris said. 

Barrymore, crowding the vice president on the couch, said enthusiastically: 'Oh, yes. OK. I love your laugh.'

Harris has been deemed unlikable and even the Democratic National Committee conducted focus groups on the vice president to understand why voters do not like her, according to a report this month.

Some voters in the focus groups cited her laugh and others in the group questioned whether President Joe Biden even likes her.

The 59-year-old's approval rating rests somewhere in the mid-30s – a historic low for the modern vice presidency as she spent the first three years in office struggling with bad headlines.

'I have my mother's laugh,' Harris detailed to Barrymore. 'And I grew up around a bunch of women, in particular, who laughed from the belly. They laughed, they would sit around the kitchen and drinking their coffee, telling big stories with big laughs.'

'You know, I'm never gonna be like,' Harris said before faking a dainty chuckle into her hand.

The Democrat continued her story: 'It's just I'm not that person. And I think it's really important for us to remind each other and our younger ones: don't be confined to other people's perception about what this looks like, and who you should – how you should act in order to be right.'

'It's really important. It's, it's important,' she concluded.

Barrymore, who is known for her empathetic interview style, replied with: 'I love your laugh, and I love that message.'
