Not since Wesley Crusher has there been a space cadet as annoying as Kamala Harris.
Did you see the clip of Cadet Kamala explaining the importance of space to members of the US Space Force?
Sweet merciful Zeus. Kamala talked to serving members of the Space Force like they were a bunch of paste-eating special-ed kids.
Wait. No. That’s the wrong video.
Well, you can see how I got that mixed up. Whenever this space cadet talks about space, she sounds like she’s talking to paste-eating special-ed kids.
Let’s try again, shall we?
Oh, damn. That clip cuts off the last sentence from that paragraph.
Here’s the entire paragraph. And as I always say, to get the true effect, read it out loud to yourself:
“I think everyone here recognizes how extraordinary space is. Whether it is satellites that orbit the Earth, humans that land on the Moon, or telescopes that peer into the furthest reaches of the universe, space is exciting. It spurs our imaginations, and it forces us to ask big questions. Space — it affects us all, and it connects us all.”
“Space — it affects us all.”
Honestly? I’m surprised she didn’t close with “Space – the final frontier.”
Does Kamala think the US Space Force is populated by half-wit morons who don’t know about satellites orbiting the earth or men landing on the moon?
Amazingly, she managed to talk about telescopes letting us peer into the “furthest reaches of the universe” without adding “with your own eyes! With your own eyes!!!”
And “space is exciting?” Really?
This would be like going to speak to the sailors at a naval base and saying, “The ocean is exciting!”
Last night, on Gutfeld!, Walter Kirn pointed out that space doesn’t connect us all; it does the exact opposite. Space is what separates us from each other:
“If space connected us all and you reached into a bag of potato chips, it would be one big chip. And you wouldn’t have to reach because it would already be in your mouth. So her understanding of physics is absolutely the opposite of mine.”
Kamala’s remarks weren’t off-the-cuff. This was from a prepared speech written by her team of speechwriters. That’s the stunning part here.
They deliberately chose to make the Vice President sound like an utter space cadet. On purpose.
And I know it was from prepared remarks because nowhere in her 1,300-word speech did Kamala use her favorite phrase, “in terms of.”
On Thursday, when Kamala arrived in San Francisco, she took one question from a reporter. And in her answer, she used her favorite phrase, twice.
This is how you determine what remarks are extemporaneous and what remarks are pre-written for her by a team of writers.
So when Kamala addressed the US Space Force as if they all arrived there on the short bus, it was a staff decision to make her sound like a condescending preschool teacher.
This leads me to suspect that Veep’s staff is deliberately sabotaging this woman by making her look bad.
Admittedly, it could just be that Kamala’s office is populated by deeply stupid and uninformed staffers who actually read through her speech and thought to themselves, “Nailed it!” Let’s face it. When people are fleeing Kamala’s office like rats from a sinking ship, the only ones willing to stick around are the staffers who know they aren’t qualified to work anywhere else.
But at the end of the day, the only reason the Vice Presidential staff can get away with making the boss sound like a space cadet is because the boss in question is Kamala Harris. She is insecure, unprepared, inexperienced, and so far from qualified, that she couldn’t find “qualified” even if she peered through the most powerful telescope in space.
