On Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris hosted the Jamaican prime minister at the White House:

Vice President Kamala Harris will host Jamaica’s prime minister at the White House on Wednesday as part of an effort to improve the United States’ relationship with Caribbean nations.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness is the second Carribean [sic] leader to visit Harris in Washington, and the bilateral meeting coincides with the 60th anniversary year of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Jamaica and the United States.

Holness will be the first Jamaican leader to visit the White House since a 1995 working visit by former Jamaican Prime Minister P.J. Patterson.

Harris’ remarks were true to form:

So to that end we are announcing today also that we will assist Jamaica in Covid recovery, um, by assisting in terms of the recovery efforts in Jamaica that have been essential to I believe what is necessary to strengthen not only the issue of public health but of the economy.”

Got that?

And yet, sadly, it was not a joke. At least not an intentional one.

We keep waiting for her to remove a mask to reveal that this has been a Sacha Baron Cohen gag the entire time but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards.
