The “V” in VP must stand for Vapid

The “V” in VP must stand for Vapid

I love the word vapid.

I don’t know why it tickles me to use it, but it does.

Vapid has so much more heft and meaning behind it than, say, “stupid” or “dumb.”

Same goes for vacuous.

Vacuous shares the same Latin root as the word vacuum – an empty space completely devoid of any substance or matter.

Vacuous and vapid are synonyms.

They are both delightfully wonderful words.

And both describe Vice President🤣 Kamala Harris to a tee.

This isn’t a new revelation by any stretch.

Hell, even Democrat primary voters could sniff out the lack of substance or matter behind the toothy smile.

After her one and only debate against Mike Pence, I concluded:

And if Kamala’s showing at last night’s debate is any indication, America would be stuck with a President and Commander-in-Chief with the intellectual depth of an Inspiration-a-Day calendar and the international gravitas of a vapid beauty contestant.

Sure, she talks a lot. But the fact is, she never says anything of substance.

It’s all just word salad – which is why back in 2019 I dubbed her “Word Salad Kamala.”

Kamala’s speaking skills are about as substantive as a sixth grade oral book report from a kid who didn’t bother reading the book.

Does Kamala’s brain not work fast enough to formulate a coherent sentence? Is she so afraid of pregnant pauses that her solution is just to cram in as many words as possible to fill the void?

This is what I mean when I say Kamala is vapid.

There’s no there there.

The other day, Kamala was being interviewed by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. And to Guthrie’s credit, she tried to pin down the Vice President🤣 on when the hell children will be permitted to return to school.

Guthrie asked Harris if keeping 90% of schools closed was a mistake.

This was Kamala’s answer. Now, don’t just scan the words. Read this vapid word salad aloud to yourself.

“In the last four weeks, schools are opening, every week more schools are opening. And it is because we are supplementing what needs to happen around the vaccinations getting into states, but also because we are seeing progress, folks are wearing masks when they’re getting vaccinated, when they’re social distancing, we’re seeing progress there.”

Again, this is the answer she gave to whether it was a mistake to keep 90% of schools closed for in-person learning.

She never answered the question. And the word salad she offered instead doesn’t make a damn bit of sense.

But wait! There’s more (or less if you measure words by quality and not by quantity):

“But we all want the schools to reopen, Savannah, all of us who have children in our lives. They want to go back to school, we want them to go back to school, teachers want to teach.”

So, does that mean it was a mistake to keep 90% of schools closed for in-person learning?

We still don’t know, do we?

And when pressed on the CDC’s guidelines that it was safe to reopen schools, this was the Vapid President Harris’ response:

“What the CDC, what they have recommended are exactly that: recommendations about how to reopen safely if they’ve been closed, how to stay open if they’ve been opened. Some recommendations include what, again, needs to happen around social distancing, hand-washing, mask-wearing. But the point is that we all want our kids to get back to school as quickly as possible and as safely as possible.”

I’m hope you’re reading these out loud. Because it’s way more fun.

Stop and marvel at this circular logic: The CDC have recommended recommendations.

That’s what she says in the opening of her answer. “What the CDC, what they have recommended are exactly that: recommendations.”

So they recommended recommendations.

How did this woman every make it through high school let alone law school?

But you see what I mean?

I’m telling you, the V in VP stands for Vapid.

Look at her summary of what she was saying. It’s the sentence that begins with “The point is.”

There was a point to that word salad?!

“The point” Kamala thinks she made in this gobbledygook is “we all want our kids to get back to school as quickly as possible and as safely as possible.”

“The point of Huckleberry Finn is we all would love to ride on the Mississippi in a raft.”

But she didn’t answer the freaking question.

Savannah Guthrie didn’t ask “What do you think the point is about the debate over school openings?”

She didn’t say, “Tell me your thoughts on opening schools.”

She asked if it is a mistake to keep 90% of schools closed for in-person learning.

And after all that vapid twaddle, we still don’t know if Kamala thinks it’s a mistake.

But this is standard fare from Kamala Harris.

This is why I say Kamala’s speaking skills are about as substantive as a sixth grade oral book report from a kid who didn’t bother reading the book.

Kamala can’t answer the question because she truly doesn’t know enough detail to provide an intelligent answer. She is a vapid lightweight placed in a job that is so far over her head the best she can do is offer up meaningless word salads instead of substantive answers.

Now you understand why in all of her interviews Kamala is reduced to deploying that awful, annoying laugh. It’s her go-to defense mechanism to mask her inability to formulate a coherent, truthful response.

And this is the woman making phone calls to world leaders on behalf of the senile oldster who picked her.

This is the woman who will inevitably be elevated to President and Commander-in-Chief when that senile old booby gets ousted by the very people who used him to get back into the White House.

America’s enemies must be laughing themselves silly.

    The Governor in the best little whorehouse in Texas comes to my mind. ” Dance a little sidestep”

    When she becomes President (Honk Honk) America will be reduced to a laughing stock because a brainless simpleton would be a mockery to all other countries.
    And she can’t even form a coherent sentence. Good God, what are we all going to do….

    I’m not convinced that Joe Blow picked her, but if he did, it could only be to (1) make him look smarter and (2) to avail himself of her widely known “talents” for getting ahead.
    Sadly, Kurt Schlichter’s Kelly Turnbull novels are becoming more real every day.

    “Vapid” is a bullseye!

    But, Dianny, if you want to avoid repetition in other contexts, I offer the word insipid as another apt Kakamala descriptor. It’s from the Latin term sapidus, meaning well-tasted, wise, prudent, and the “in-” prefix of course means the lack of those qualities.

    My OED lists a few senses as obsolete but Kakamala begs their revival:

    as an adjective:
    Devoid of taste, intelligence, or judgement; stupid, foolish, dull.

    as a noun:
    An insipid person or thing; one who is deficient in sense, spirit, or taste.

      Insipid is another favorie of mine. But I wouldn’t have been able to use the V for Vendetta theme. 🤷‍♀️

    …and there’s always fatuous, which is a bullseye for Nadler. (-:

    Why couldn’t we just go with “moron”?

    So Kammie picks up the phone and it’s Vladimir. He asks, “Can I speak to your President?” She hands the phone to JB (iin a rather dejected manner). JB answers with, “Yes, what can I do for you?” To which Vladimir says, “Please, may I speak with your President?” A quick thinking, quick acting presidential aide presses a button on the phone console forwarding the call to Mar-A-Lago in Florida.
