On Monday (March 6), during a moderated conversation about climate policy, Vice President Kamala Harris shared a childhood memory bashing conservatives causing those on social media to claim the story is made up.
Harris’s recent comments are the latest in a string of criticism the Vice President received for her public speaking.
While speaking at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities in Colorado, Harris discussed “ecology,” which she learned when she was growing up, noting the lessons were “talked about it in the context of conservation.”
Harris explained that she “went home one day andwhy are conservatives bad, mommy?'” adding that she believed “we were supposed to conserve things.”
She insisted that at the time, she “couldn’t comprehend it,” but explained that she could now.
As the clip of Harris sharing the story went viral on Twitter, users quickly dissected the recollection.
Karolina Leavitt, the 2022 New Hampshire congressional candidate, stated that Harris’s communication advisors “would be wise to keep her far, far away from a camera and a microphone.”
Others suggested that Harris fabricated the story.
Host of “The Dana Show,” Dana Loesch, simply said, “This never happened.”
Writer Virginia Kruta tweeted that she didn’t know if Harris was laughing because she thought the story was funny or because “there are a few suckers dumb enough to believe this actually happened.”
Steve Guest, Ted Cruz’s special advisor for communication, joked that he’ll “take ‘Things that never happened for $1,000.'”
Some also suggested Harris had picked up her jokes from President Joe Biden, with columnist Buzz Patterson tweeting, “I bet Kamala and Joe sit around the fire and compare whoppers.”
