Boom. Boom. Boom. Another one bites the dust.
And another one gone, another one gone, another Veeper bites the dust.
Politico reported on Friday that another Veep staffer is heading for the exits after only four months on the job.
Meghan Groob was hired in April as Kamala’s chief speechwriter after another one of Kamala’s chief speechwriters bit the dust in February.
I imagine being Veep’s chief speechwriter warrants hazard pay. It isn’t easy making Kamala Harris sound even more vapid and nonsensical than she does when speaking off the cuff. And from the looks of it, Meghan Groob was able to match Kamala’s word salad style almost perfectly.
At the same time, when a clip from one of Kamala’s speeches goes viral on Twitter for all the wrong reasons, I’m guessing the humiliated Veep directs her wrath at her speechwriter.
I’d quit after four months too. Who wants to put up with that?
Given the timing, Meghan Groob was probably responsible for that embarrassing electric school bus speech in May, videos of which were roundly mocked on social media, and on the Tucker Carlson show.
After Kamala delivered these prepared remarks in mid-May, I asked the timeless question “Do Kamala’s speechwriters secretly hate her?”
Great work, Meghan!
Another one Meghan may have cobbled together was Kamala’s speech to Space Force cadets on April 18, where she spoke to US service members like they were toddlers:
I presume Meghan was the brains behind this gem from Kamala’s speech earlier this week:
“Together, we are expanding access to transportation. It seems like maybe it’s a small issue; it’s a big issue. You need to get to go and need to be able to get where you need to go to do the work and get home.”
Is it a prerequisite for the job of Veep Chief Speechwriter to mimic Kamala’s trademark word salad style?
Or does Vice President Vapid read through the speech and say, “This doesn’t sound anything like me, in terms of how I speak, in terms of my personality. Do it again, and this time, make it sound more like me!”
Or is it as I said in May, that Kamala’s speechwriters hate her so much that they deliberately make her sound like an absolute nitwit?
Speaking of “in terms of.”
Usually, Kamala’s prepared speeches aren’t peppered with her favorite phrase. That’s more of a “Kamala off-the-cuff” feature. But hat’s off to Meghan. She managed to shoehorn five “in terms ofs” into Kamala’s Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s 70th Boule speech in Orlando this week.
Of course, it is always possible that Meghan, knowing full well she was leaving, decided to screw Kamala over by liberally tossing her favorite phrase into that speech like a lot of confetti at a wedding.
But Meghan isn’t the only one whose departure is imminent.
Another one of Kamala’s staff is also packing up a banker’s box and beating a path to the door.
It was also reported on Friday that Kamala’s longest-serving aide, Rohini Kosoglu will be leaving the Veep’s office to “spend more time with her family,” which is code for “get me the hell out of here before my soul is sucked from me like an olive pit.”
So far, the Veep has lost 15 staffers in her brief tenure in office.
Kamala goes through staffers the way Henry VIII went through wives.
At least Meghan and Rohini are leaving with their heads intact.
