As if posing in front of one of the most brutal communist dictators of the 20th century, Ho Chi Minh, wasn't bad enough, Kamala Harris laid flowers at a memorial that celebrated the capture of Sen. John McCain.
“He was an extraordinary American. A hero. I was honored and privileged to serve with him for a short time in the United States Senate. He loved our country. He was so courageous and really lived the life of a hero…always fought for the best of who we are,” Harris said.

Twitter users excoriated Harris for making such a faux pas.
That, uh, isn’t a memorial to HONOR McCain, lmao
