Authentic Frontier Gibberish Of The Year (So Far): Kamala Harris

Normally, I would be confident that a stunner like this would be a guaranteed winner, but, 1) this is Kamala Harris, and she frequently talks like English is a foreign languge and 2) her two most high-ranking Democrat colleagues, President Biden and Nancy Pelosi, are also likely to make no sense for extended periods, though in their cases…well, let’s just leave it at that.

On the Today show, Craig Melvin asked the eminently qualified Vice President—she’s “of color,”,female, and has a pulse—- whether it is time for the White House to try a new strategy to deal with the pandemic. This was Harris’s verbatim answer:

It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.

Now who can argue with that? Melvin, since he works for NBC and has no journalistic integrity or respect for his audience whatsoever, did not say, as he was ethically obligated to do, “What? What does that mean?” As for Harris, this is one more example of how much contempt she has for the public. Saying something like that can only mean, ‘I think you are all dupes and fools, that I can get away with anything, and only those fascist conservative news sources will ever criticize me.’

Her Today Show answer barely topped her reply earlier to CBS News’s Margaret Brennan, who asked Harris, “Was it wrong to consider inflation transitory? I mean, these price spikes seem like they’re going to be with us for a while.”

Harris:

We have to address the fact that we have got to deal with the fact that folks are paying for gas, paying for groceries, and [they] need solutions to it. So let’s talk about that. Short-term solution includes what we need to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and said, “Hey, guys, no more five days a week, eight hours a day; 24/7, let’s move the products because people need their product — they need what they need.”  We’re dealing with it in terms of the long term. And that’s about what we need to do to pass Build Back Better. It strengthens our economy. What do we need to do in terms of bringing down the cost of living, right?”

Rarrit!!

  1. She could stand on a street corner dressed like Foghorn Leghorn and sing, “I’m Henry the 8th, I Am” and there would be no criticism of her in the MSM. Why shouldn’t she just blabber when asked questions?

  2. As a woman, it’s horrifying that the first female to hold an office that high would be so incompetent!

    My Goodness. Third grader could do better.

    I heard another speech she did yesterday and was just dumbfounded at how dumb she looks. She was talking like a rapper or something.

    Anyway….

    And Biden’s speech… wow. What a joke.

  3. I often translate what people say under pressure (although I’m not sure how much pressure the “Today Show” provides — did she not get the questions beforehand?). I would translate:

    “It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.”

    to:

    1.) There are actions we can take to address the pandemic.
    2.) We are already taking those actions.

    I know Obama is not much loved around here, but he could at least field basic questions coherently. I do miss that.

    • Something to add specifically for politicians: I often get the impression that they select from a set of rehearsed answers that may or may not actually address the question asked (one reason it is so boring, generally, to watch interviews with politicians). These answers will, of course, at least make some sense.

      How difficult is it to memorize a dozen or so answers and drag out which ever one best matches the question being asked? Another reason to think Harris is deliberately being undermined by the administration.

      • Last night my husband said to me, I think Joe (or Jill) picked Kamala, at least in part, because of how utterly awful she is. “You want to get rid of me, well here’s what you’ll get…”

        So undermined, possibly. On the other hand is bloody difficult to undermine someone so incompetent. I believe her campaign and background both proved her lack of competence. Is it possible that Joe’s handlers are not helping her as they should? Yes. Is it possible that they are giving her every single chance on God’s Green Earth to succeed and she can’t take an opportunity handed her on a platter? I think that is definitely a possibility too.

        A woman in a male field often has a hard job to even appear competent, from my experience. That being said, if you are there because you deserve to be, you can clear that hurdle and then most everyone approves of you, except a few diehard chauvinists. Harris does not deserve to be where she is. Working harder does not apparently appear to be in her skill set unless we start cracking locker room jokes.

        • “Working harder does not apparently appear to be in her skill set unless we start cracking locker room jokes.”
          And here I thought I was engaging in political satire.

  4. I believe it was yesterday or the day before I read Kamala Harris said they passed the infrastructure bill to bring down inflation. Gee, why didn’t I think of that? Kamala Harris is what affirmative action hath wrought.
