Following comments Vice President Kamala Harris made on Tuesday (April 24) at a pro-abortion rights rally at Howard University in Washington, she was mocked.
Harris made the remarks while speaking at her alma mater in her first appearance since she and President Biden announced their 2024 reelection bids.
According to reporting by NPR, the Vice President called on liberals to stand up and fight against what she saw as the GOP’s “national agenda” to limit abortion, voting, and LGBTQ rights.
At one point in Harris’ speech, she described the moment’s importance. However, many felt the Vice President’s comments were nothing more than a ramble.
She began by expressing her thoughts that attendees had “heard from so many incredible leaders at every moment in time,” adding that this was “certainly this one, to see the moment in time.”
Harris continued that it was important to “contextualize it, to understand where we exist in history and in the moment as it relates to not only the past but the future.”
The video of Harris making the rambling remarks was shared by the Republican National Committee and others on Twitter, prompting conservatives like Steve Guest, an adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx), and others to comment on it.
Guest derided the latest verbal blunder as “word salad.”
Talk radio host Buck Sexton quipped that Harris made every speech sound like “the most brutally boring corporate HR seminar imaginable.”
Matt Whitlock, a Republican strategist, accused the vice president of being unable to speak “normally,” questioning whether Harris smoked weed before grabbing the mic, asserting that it “would explain so much.”
