Kamala Harris mocked after bizarrely telling Morning Joe 'I eat no for breakfast'

KAMALA Harris was mocked online after bizarrely announcing that she "eats no for breakfast" in an interview

She bragged about her abilities in in an interview with Mika Brzezinski that aired on Tuesday, coinciding with Forbes and “Know Your Value's “50 Over 50” list of women in business, which included Harris.

Brzezinski described how they spoke about “how the administration plans to get American workers back on track, particularly women" – but noted that Harris also "shared her advice to women embarking on a career."

"This is what she tells those she mentors," the Morning Joe host said, before playing the bizarre soundbite of Harris declaring: “I eat no for breakfast."

“So have I been told many times during my career things from ‘you are too young, it’s not your turn, they are not ready for you, no one like you has done it before,'" Joe Biden's right-hand woman continued.

"I have heard all of those things many times over the course of my career, but I didn’t listen.”

"Anyone who has been told that, whatever their gender to not listen, because again, don’t be encumbered by the inability of others to see the potential of who you are.

“It’s really important to recognize the limitations that other people have based on their expectations and to not impose that on one’s self.”

Brzezinski acknowledged that women "get set back by "no's", I think."

"You get a "no" and I think some women – a lot of them – take it really personally," the MSNBC host said. "And I love that you eat them for breakfast. I'm going to take that with me."

Harris responded: "Here's the piece that's at it's core: Who has the authority to tell you who you are? No, you don't let people tell you who you are. You tell them who you are."

However, her comments received a mixed reaction on Twitter, with some biting criticism and praise.

"Weren’t we taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?" joked one viewer. "Just eating “no” is not a good way to start off the day!"

"And she probably stirs her coffee with a hammer," quipped another, while a third remarked: "Mitch [McConnell] must feed her a lot of breakfast."

"She literally says nothing of substance. Ever," said a fourth – but others described Harris as "a BADASS."

"I am forever grateful that Vice President Harris ate 'no' for breakfast," one person wrote. "This is her time. So incredibly lucky she is our VP!"

Harris made the breakfast comments after Brzezinksi, 54, partnered with Forbes to create "50 Over 50' list" for women, which included 56-year-old Harris. 

In her Forbes  essay entitled "Kamalanomics: Vice President Harris Outlines Her Vision Of Inclusive Entrepreneurship," the VP called for more investment in "care infrastructure" to help women business owners.

After the clip aired, Harris was also slammed over the Biden administration's response to the ongoing US border crises and her failure to visit the hard-hit area.

"[Harris] was named point person for the #BidenBorderCrisis 69 days ago but can't be bothered to go to the border," one person raged.

"Are they trying to protect her from criticism as they know Biden will not probably make it through his first term due to his progressing dementia?"

"So what about the 'no' in the number of times you've visited the border?" agreed a second viewer.

It comes after Harris fielded a barrage of criticism over her a Memorial Day tweet that failed to mention fallen soldiers or the military.

"Enjoy the long weekend," the Vice President tweeted alongside a smiling picture of herself, without acknowledging the role of the holiday in commemorating fallen soldiers of the U.S. army.

GOP lawmaker Lauren Boebert, Trump advisor Jenna Ellis, GOP Rep Adam Kinzinger, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders all blasted her actions on Twitter.

Meanwhile, her "woke" joke about female Marines fell flat during her commencement speech at the Naval Academy on Friday.

"You are electrical engineers who will soon help convert solar and wind energy into power, convert solar and wind energy into combat power," Harris said.

"Just ask any Marine today, would she rather carry 20 pounds of batteries or a rolled up solar panel? And I am positive she will tell you a solar panel, and so would he."

 Video of Harris' joke was shared widely on Twitter and met with some backlash, as Newsmax's Benny Johnson slammed the quip as "humiliating."
