The White House has decided to send Kamala Harris out to do the sit-down interviews Joe Biden is afraid to do. And let’s just say, the strategy is going about as badly as you’d expect. Yesterday Kamala was interviewed on NBC’s Today Show and the only good thing you can say about it is she didn’t deploy her cackle.
Though, after seeing this clip, I’m beginning to think Kamala’s cackle would’ve been more coherent.
As is always the case when Kamala offers up a serving of word salad, it is more effective if you read it aloud to yourself:
“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.”
Yeah, that’s one for the history books. Right up there with “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”
The only thing missing from that word salad was Kamala’s go-to “We have to have a conversation about that.”
Is it any wonder Kamala relies on her cackle?
If this is the best this woman can offer by way of an answer, she’s better off sticking with her cackle.
But I suspect the measured, plodding delivery of this word salad was on purpose. See, I think her crisis comms team is working very hard to prevent Kamala from cackling inappropriately by having her answer very slowly.
“Now, Madam Vice President, when you feel the urge to cackle like a braying mule, pause and count to ten, then slowly give your answer.”
While that might stop her from deploying that off-putting hyena laugh, it does nothing to make her sound more intelligent, informed, or coherent.
Remember two months ago when Kamala finished up her “Historic First European Trip for the Historic First Woman-of-Color Vice President?”
She offered up the same kind of word salad there that she did here.
As I said at the time:
I don’t know what disturbs me more about this woman – the off-putting, inappropriate laughter, or her inability to concisely and coherently deliver a speech that consists of something more than meaningless word salad.
She talks, sometimes a lot. But there is absolutely no substance to what she says. She really does sound like a beauty contestant.
How does a politician make it all the way to the Vice Presidency without learning how to speak extemporaneously?
And how can the sitting Vice President be so uninformed about one of the major issues of the day, namely COVID response?
Her interviewer wasn’t asking her to comment on the unrest in Kazakhstan and the fate of former President Nursultan Nazarbayev. He was asking her about the Biden administration’s COVID response. You know, the very thing that propelled Biden and Harris into the White House.
Yet she couldn’t even intelligently discuss it because once again, this vapid know-nothing hasn’t done her homework.
Remember that Washington Post hit-piece on Kamala from early December? Former staffers said that Kamala would refuse to review briefing materials prepared by her staff, then when she was caught unprepared, she would berate them for looking unprepared.
But why in Lucifer’s reach would Kamala need to study briefing materials on the Biden administration’s COVID response? It is THE issue Biden and Harris ran on.
She should know it inside and out.
But she doesn’t.
Her cackle is Kamala’s defense mechanism to hide her incompetence. And while I understand why her comms team would want to wean her off of it, without it, Americans who already can’t stand the woman, can see for themselves just how unprepared and unqualified she is.
