Some Twitter users opted to rain on everybody's parade by making fun of the California senator. One user wrote, "this is every middle class white person's idea of what being black is." Another user compared her to past democratic candidates who won their races like former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. He said that while people still look back on Clinton playing the sax, he felt that candidates dancing has become a cringe-worthy trend.

Other people used the video to criticize Harris like podcaster Jake Flores, who wrote "Cop starts breakdancing," likely referencing questions that have been raised about Harris' time as a prosecutor, as explained by Vox.

Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra criticized her for dancing while campaigning. "This is what Kamala Harris is doing instead of showing up to her taxpayer-funded job and voting for relief funds that will go toward helping Americans who are struggling from the pandemic," he wrote.

Kamala Harris brings energy to Biden's restrained campaign

  Kamala Harris brings energy to Biden's restrained campaign As she speaks to cheering crowds, drops in to neighborhood coffee shops or pays "surprise" visits to college students, 56-year-old Kamala Harris has brought a jolt of youthful energy to the low-key presidential campaign of her 77-year-old running mate, Democrat Joe Biden. "I'm very happy to be back in Atlanta, Georgia," she says as she steps jauntily down the stairs of a private plane onto the tarmac of the city's international airport in the autumnal warmth of the US South.

A Trump supporter tweeted that the senator would "need a bigger umbrella" for the "liberal tears," as she put it.

The woman who posted the TikTok on Twitter responded to all the haters sharing it. "[T]he right has found this video. And it's just further proof that we will win with joy, something they hate to see," she wrote.

The Biden campaign did not respond to Newsweek's emailed request for comment in time for publication.
