Kamala Harris Gaffes About Population – Vice President Kamala Harris’s latest gaffe about population control and environmentalism is bound to open a firestorm of debate – and all she had to do was cleanup her wording – but she did not.
She has become the Biden administration’s point person on abortion in the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned. Her speech seemed to tie depopulation with environmentalism.
“When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce population, more of our children can breathe clean air and drink clean water,” Harris told a crowd at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland in a speech discussing the Inflation Reduction Act.
What Did Kamala Harris Mean?
19FortyFive found the speech transcript, and it is clear Harris misspoke and did not correct herself.
Again, here is what she meant to say, according to the transcript provided to the press.
“When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce pollution, more of our children can breathe clean air and drink clean water.
Think of the impact on family budgets. When we help folks upgrade their heating and cooling systems, we lower the cost of electricity, which means lower energy bills for working parents so they have more money for groceries and home repairs and school supplies.”
She went on to say:
“And think of all the jobs that these investments will create, including many good-paying union jobs. Jobs, for example, for the workers of IBEW who will install energy-efficient lighting. Jobs for the sheet metal workers who will replace gas furnaces with electric heat pumps. Jobs for the laborers who will build net-zero housing. Right.
So, understand, when the President and I invest in climate, we intend to invest in jobs, invest in families, and invest in America.”
More Problems for the Vice President
The gaffe comes on the heels of Harris’ comment about artificial intelligence earlier in the week.
“Part of this issue that should be articulated is that AI is this fancy thing. First of all, it’s two letters. It means artificial intelligence,” Harris said while laughing her head off. “Ultimately what it is it’s about machine learning, and so the machine is taught.”
Harris continues to open her mouth and prove she is not as smart as she thinks.
Vice President Harris needs to be careful about these mistakes, or at the very least, quickly clear up her wording, as it can lead to problems if she ever decides to run for president in her own right – or finds herself in the Oval Office someday if President Biden were to become ill or pass away.
