On September 30, 2022, Kamala Harris, while standing in the DMZ directly next to North Korea, used a pair of binoculars to look at North Korea, while it was just 50 meters away, of which she seemed to be unaware.
While viewing North Korea, she said:
There’s something about seeing it… with your own eyes… And it’s so close.
The service member directly next to her says:
It’s only 50 meters away m’am.
She appeared to disregard this comment and brought up the topic of photographs from the Webb telescope.
Have you seen the photographs from the Webb telescope? It’s the most humbling thing, you’ve got to see it.
The video of the exchange can be viewed below:
Note: The service members did appear to be pointing at things in the distance, which she appeared to be using the binoculars to look at. However when confronted with the fact that North Korea was only 50 meters away from her, she didn’t acknowledge this information, and changed the subject.
