Laura Ingraham: Kamala Harris 'slipping into a different dimension' with latest word salad


Vice President Kamala Harris was mocked by Fox News host Laura Ingraham after she made another incomprehensible statement during a speech at Howard University on abortion rights.

Vice President Kamala Harris was brutally mocked for puzzling comments she made during a rally for abortion rights at Howard University in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.

Harris delivered her remarks at her alma mater, in her first speaking engagement since she and President Biden announced their 2024 re-election bid.

The VP was urging liberals to "stand and fight" against what she deemed a "national agenda" by the GOP to limit abortion rights, voting rights and LGBTQ rights, NPR reported. At one point in her speech, she gave a rambling description of the importance of the moment.

"So I think it's very important, as you have heard from so many incredible leaders for us at every moment in time and certainly this one, to see the moment in time in which we exist and are present, and to be able to contextualize it, to understand where we exist in the history and in the moment as it relates not only to the past but the future," Harris said in video shared by the Republican National Committee and others on Twitter.

Conservatives like Steve Guest, adviser for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, roundly ridiculed the latest verbal blunder as a "word salad."

Talk radio host Buck Sexton joked, "Every Kamala speech somehow sounds like the most brutally boring corporate HR seminar imaginable."

Republican strategist Matt Whitlock accused the VP of being unable of speaking "normally."

"It's pretty striking that she is simply incapable of speaking normally. Is she actually smoking weed before grabbing the mic? It would explain so much," Whitlock tweeted.

Vice President Kamala Harris was ridiculed on social media for her latest verbal blunder.

Fox News Radio host Guy Benson responded with a grimacing emoji to the awkward speech.

PJ Media senior columnist Stephen Kruiser teased, "She speaks like James Joyce would have written if he'd had no talent and been even more drunk."

Freelance security analyst Kyle Orton likened Harris to the satirical political character Selina Meyer from "Veep,"

"Pure VEEP stuff," he remarked.

The Vice President has frequently been mocked for her word salads and awkward stories at public events.

Last month critics ripped Harris after she honored "women who made history throughout history" in a speech for Women's History Month.

As criticism of Kamala Harris, that video is absurd. Three examples of her speaking are given, under the banner of "Kamala Harris Fumbles Through Her Speeches".

Two of the three examples given are not speeches at all and third contains obvious ad libbing. 

There is something wrong here, but its not Harris,  it is the people who think all this nonsense means something.

She meant that she, along with many present and historical leaders, believes it important to understand our present role in context of the past and in consideration of the future.

Even more succinct: consider lessons learned and act properly today considering our impact on the future.

I don't want someone who thinks it is a word salad to explain it, I want the person who pretended her words made sense to try to explain.

There is no doubt that her sentences here are quite repetitive, but other than that, what is supposed to be the big deal with this? 

The idea that no one can understand what she meant is bizarre. She is saying that we need to put the present into a historical context at times and do so in a way that helps us in the future. 

I dont know what the topic she was discussing was so I cant say if what she said was really meaningful or not. Nor do I care at this particular moment. This entire controversy surrounding her "speeches" is ridiculous. 

The right is making a concerted effort to denigrate Kamala Harris, that is quite obvious.

It is not a big deal (to me).   It is, however,  clearly a word salad.   And that does not surprise me with Harris. 

Her AI commentary that was deemed a word salad was NOT a word salad.  I made that clear (although the confirmation bias at play is strong).   In this case, it IS a word salad.   

It is a big deal to the Rs because anything negative regarding a D is a big deal to them.   They are apparently on a mission to win the presidency and they are stuck with Trump as their nominee.

Kamala Harris appears to want to over explain or keep talking until she thinks she has made her point. Thus she has had episodes of repetitiveness. 

This has nothing whatsoever to do with intelligence, or competence. 

The political right is on a crusade to discredit Harris and scare people into thinking a vote for Biden is a vote for this horrible person Kamala Harris. It is absurd, but par for the course for the MAGA party.

Yeah, ok. I think I get what she was going for. She's trying to get people to focus on historical context. She's just really not smooth about it, though.

Speaking of context, one of the problems with these clips is that we get just the bad sentence or two. Probably if we had to sit through the whole thing, we'd get her meaning. But that's not how news is done, these days.

It's really easy to not like her.

Kamala Harris Skewered Over Latest 'Word Salad' Gaffe: 'Incapable Of Speaking Normally' 

The seeded article is 4 1/2 months old.  If that is her "latest" gaff she's not doing too bad. jrSmiley_10_smiley_image.gif

If you look at the video of this

It is clear that Harris was not giving a speech. She was making unscripted remarks .  So she had a slight brain freeze 4 1/2 months ago and we are supposed to make hay over it today.

It isn't.

“Culture is — it is a reflection of our moment in our time, right? And in present culture is the way we express how we’re feeling about the moment,” Harris, 58, told audience members last Friday at the Essence Festival of Culture in the Caesars Superdome

“And we should always find times to express how we feel about the moment that is a reflection of joy, because as you know, it comes in the morning,” the vice president added, bursting into laughter.

“We have to find ways to also express the way we feel about the moment in terms of just having language and a connection to how people are experiencing life. And I think about it in that way too,” she said.  Kamala Harris 'culture' word salad stumps Twitter users (nypost.com)

“Today, I am pleased to announce that the next steps in our work together will be about further expanding our partnership. In particular, we will discuss the work that we will do together to strengthen our space cooperation,” Harris, 58, said at the White House while President Biden enjoyed the Delaware beach.

“You and I spoke briefly about the beginning of the next era — and, for you, what that means, in terms of your leadership and your vision for the future,” Harris told the prime minister, “and certainly, strengthening our space cooperation would be a part of that agenda — including, of course, using our space cooperation to think about how we strengthen the economic prosperity and development of our nations.”

Ok, maybe not her most succinct moment, but check this out:

This — this decision about the denial of understanding the importance of — of the evolution we had to say that businesses cannot discriminate based on who you are.  And a decision that has essentially said that we’re going to just throw a truck through the laws that were designed to prevent discrimination and to deprive anyone just based on who they are from having access to public — publicly available services. 

So, you know, I say this.  Coretta Scott King famously said said: The fight for civil rights must be fought and won with each generation.  We are that generation she spoke of at this moment in time.  (Applause.)  And so, fight we must, understanding that the gains that we have made will never be permanent unless we are vigilant. 

And I say that means let us fight for the future we deserve.  Fight for the future we deserve.  (Applause.)

DOH!    I could go on but there’s really no point to it since the triggered masses will continue to give her the “partisan pass” they are programmed to give Dems like her.

And some of those same people hammered Quayle for misspelling potato …… hilarious!
