Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was at an event recently doing what people who want to become president do: waving and trying to look sincere. While Harris might indeed be a distinguished lawmaker, her acting ability could use a little work.
People on Twitter noticed and seemed to find her apparently insincere look super relatable.
It has now become a reaction meme employed whenever anyone is trying to hide their true emotions.

Some people used the GIF to take shots at Harris, especially her recent student loan forgiveness plan.

It’s always possible that Harris was being sincere, and perhaps having a very heartfelt moment. It just didn’t come across that way to social media users.
In the future, we recommend the senator do more chair dancing. She’s great at it.
