Kamala Harris Draws Criticism For Laughing After Voter Calls Donald Trump’s Actions ‘Mentally Retarded’

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is under fire after a voter at one of her rallies called Donald Trump’s actions “mentally retarded” and the 54-year-old laughed at the remark, praising the voter.
