The amazing Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, has made some interesting statements throughout her career in office, but the most memorable are the word salads that catch us off guard. If you get confused about what she said, I do too, so don’t feel bad. Here are 10 quotes from VPOTUS that might make you question her elocution and oratorical ability.
#10. “We must together. Work together. To see where we are. Where we are headed, where we are going and our vision for where we should be. But also see it as a moment to, yes. Together, address the challenges and to work on the opportunities that are presented by this moment.”
An interesting word salad from our Vice President describing us working together. I’m especially interested in the part in which we face the challenges ahead.
#9. “What else do we know about this population, 18 through 24? They are stupid!”
Admittedly, this quote is somewhat out of context, nonetheless, Vice President Kamala Harris can’t have her cake and eat it too, as she still does disrespect young Americans despite relying on their votes.
#8. “With us in government. We campaign with thee plan! Uppercase T uppercase P thee plan! And then the environment is such that we’re expected to defend thee plan!
In a lab in Paris, our Vice president took on faux French accent as she emphasized “thee plan!” I was personally baffled by the accent she formulated out of thin air. Maybe add French to her convoluted heritage?
#7. “Elections matter. And when folks vote, they order what they want — and in this case they got what they asked for. I went off script a little bit.”
At a speech in the White House, to celebrate Joe Biden’s nomination of Ketjanji Brown earlier this year, our Kamala Harris would tell us the importance of elections and the amazing administration that came with the 2020 election.
#6. “I love Hanukkah because it really is about the light, and bringing light where there has been darkness. And there is so much work to be done in the world, to bring light.”
Kamala Harris describes the importance of Hanukkah, the reasons why she loves it, and the purpose. Just remember the purpose is the light.
#5. “So, Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”
Kamala Harris gives an extraordinary explanation of the current Ukraine conflict between the very large country of Russia which is bullying the small country of Ukraine. Thank you Vice President Harris for the geography lesson.
#4. “But we all watched the television coverage of just yesterday. That’s on top of everything else that we know and don’t know yet, based on what we’ve just been able to see. And because we’ve seen it or not doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened.”
In a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, our Vice President would help us understand what may or may not be happening in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
#3. “Do not come. Do not come.”
University Democrats most quoted Kamala Harris quote (from my experience), has Kamala Harris telling immigrants from Guatemala to not come to the United States-Mexico border. She seems to have changed her tune a bit.
#2. “The significance of the passage of time, right? The significance of the passage of time. So when you think about it, there is great significance to the passage of time.”
At an event in Sunset, Louisiana, Vice President Harris was giving a speech on affordable internet access and told us about the significance of the passage of time.
#1. “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”
My personal favorite quote, the Today show, Craig Melvin interviewed Vice President Harris and asked if the administration will change course in fighting against COVID-19. Her response tells us her real thoughts about the things we should be doing and that time is every day.
