The root causes of spontaneous laughter - Kamala Harris
Before we get to the root causes, let’s consider the cure - Savannah Guthrie.
I was anticipating an “excuse me, I’m speaking” during this interview. Is accountability one of the treatments, if not a cure for spontaneous laughter?
The press treats her poorly because she is a woman and because she is black. Do tell.
Savannah Guthrie won a News Emmy for her performance at the president Trump town hall in 2020. The mob that you appease may be the mob that takes you out.

During the interview above, Kamala Harris said, “We are clear and have been clear for some time.” The video below from another recent interview with America’s favorite Veep contradicts that notion of clarity while providing yet another example of - no matter how many staffers you fire or abuse, it is only your fault when you show up unprepared for an interview that is essentially an open book test.
Steady Health lists some common causes of compulsive and inappropriate laughing:
Social anxiety disorders can result in inappropriate laughter as a result of fears of social interaction. Usually this nervous kind of laughter is clearly not directed at anyone or anything. It's more like punctuation, as in "Good morning, ha-ha., How are you, ha-ha." When the condition causes embarrassment, it gets worse, and causes still more embarrassment. The condition can usually successfully be treated with antidepressants in combination with psychotherapy.
Tourette syndrome and other tic disorders can cause outbursts of laughter at inappropriate times, although these disorders usually also cause either uncontrollable facial and other movements and inappropriate speech. Tourette syndrome may be treated with medications, but since they are not a long term solution as they only temporarily repress tics, it is more ideal for the environment to simply adapt to the symptoms.
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder, an extreme form of premenstrual tension in women of reproductive age, sometimes results in uncontrollable outbursts of laughter.
Other causes include dementia, brain tumors, vitamin B12 deficiency and AIDS dementia complex.
“It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day.”
