Vice President Kamala Harris spoke to the residents of Highland Park, Illinois, on Tuesday in the wake of an Independence Day parade shooting that left seven dead and over 30 injured. As usual, Kamala delivered a meaningless word salad in her inimitable style.
“We’ve got to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously,” she told residents and reporters. “The whole nation should understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this could happen anywhere [to] any people in any community. And we should stand together and speak out about why it’s got to stop.”
Her bland, inarticulate message rightly drew social media ridicule.
“She is amazingly bad at this,” National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker tweeted.
“[E]very new quote of hers makes less and less sense as a complete sentence,” sports editor Whitney McIntosh wrote.
“Okay, she did not always sound this incoherent when put on the spot, right? Am I misremembering? It’s getting Weird,” writer Ashley Reese wondered.
“Ok, I give up. There ARE some jobs where you shouldn’t be allowed to drink on the clock,” screenwriter Josh Olson quipped.
“Seriously, @VP doesn’t know how to speak,” Mediaite writer Jackson Richman said.
