VP Kamala Harris handed out cookies in her likeness without the details of her face, according to The Daily Mail.
Critics flocked from all corners of the internet to give their 2 cents.
Buzz Patterson tweeted, “I never even imagined this level of narcissism.”
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said, “Handing out cookies with her face as the border crisis rages… The modern-day equivalent of “let them eat cake.'”
Commentator Matt Walsh said, ‘”Here you go, everyone. I thought you might like to eat my face.” What a weirdo. Extremely disturbing behavior.’
Lauren Chen said, ‘I thought someone gave Kamala cookies that look like her. That would’ve been a cute gift.’
‘Instead, she gave cookies that look like her to other people. That’s a narcissistic AF and a totally weird gift.’
Another Twitter user said, ‘Kamala Antoinette: “Let them eat cookies,.”‘
‘Kamala was given cookies that look like her by a Black owned business.”
“Kamala then handed them out to the press.”
“The press is now saying that was a gross thing to do. Tell me, was she just supposed to eat them all herself.”
Carol Fiorello said, ‘They have nothing else to criticize. So petty & childish.’
At a national address in South America Harris said to Guatemalans that were considering making the “dangerous trek” to the U.S., “I want to be clear to folks in the region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come. Do not come,’ she said. ‘I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back.”
‘I came here to be here on the ground, to speak with the leader of this nation around what we can do in a way that is significant, is tangible and has real results,’ Harris stated.
‘And I will continue to be focused on that kind of work as opposed to grand gestures.’
‘The message changed too: “We’re going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children.”‘
‘The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.’

Kamala Harris has come under fire for handing out cookies with her likeness during her first foreign tour of Central American countries ravaged by the border crisis.
The vice president gifted the treats – which featured a bust of her drawn in frosting without the details of her face – to reporters aboard Air Force 2 on Sunday as she set off for Guatemala.
USA Today reporter Courtney Subramanian shared a photo of one of the cookies on Twitter – sparking an onslaught of criticism from conservatives.
Another set of cookies is reported to have featured Air Force 2, according to a tweet posted Sunday night by Subramanian.
Many critics wondered why the vice president would give out cookies of her own likeness while she faces backlash for avoiding the US-Mexico border, a visit she said would be akin to nothing but a ‘grand gesture.’
The former presidential hopeful visited Guatemala on Monday to try to address the ‘root causes’ of illegal immigration.
The vice president drew even more comparisons to a certain French monarch.
