Trump Mocks Kamala Harris’ Word Salad – In a recent interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, former U.S. President Donald Trump took jabs at Vice President Kamala Harris, mocking her style of speech.
During the interview, Trump expressed doubts about Kamala Harris becoming the Democratic candidate in the next presidential election. He quipped, “Well, not really… She has some bad moments. Her moments are almost as bad as it is. I think his (Joe Biden) is worse, actually. Yeah. She speaks in rhyme. And, it’s weird., but she has bad moments.”
Trump imitated Harris’s speech style, saying, “The way she talks, (mocking tone) the bus will go here and then the bus will go there because that’s what buses do. And it’s weird. The whole thing is weird. This is not a president of the United States future. And, I think they probably have some kind of a primary, and other people will get involved.”
The video clip of Trump’s comments quickly went viral on social media, drawing reactions from his supporters.
Word Salad for Kamala Harris
Harris’ prolonged explanations have become a popular subject of internet memes. In July she sparked discussion after a drawn-out explanation of “culture”.
In a speech to the 2023 Essence Festival of Culture at the Caesars Superdome the Vice President stated: “Culture is – it is a reflection of our moment and our time. Right?’ the Democrat said, while engaging in several of her trademark pauses.
“And present culture is the way we express how we’re feeling about the moment, and we should always find times to express how we feel about the moment.
“That is a reflection of joy. Because, you know,’ she added, before an audible pause and eventually breaking into laughter, ‘it comes in the morning.’
Harris History of Blunders
Addressing a White House press conference earlier this month, Harris remarked, “I am delighted to reveal that our collaborative efforts will take a stride forward as we explore ways to enhance our partnership. Specifically, our deliberations will revolve around bolstering our joint efforts in space cooperation.”
Speaking alongside Mongolian Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene Luvsannamsrai, the 58-year-old shared, “Our recent discussions touched on the advent of the upcoming era and its implications for your leadership and your vision of the future. Undoubtedly, enhancing our space collaboration forms an integral component of this agenda. This collaboration extends to leveraging our joint space endeavors to fortify the economic prosperity and advancement of our respective nations.”
In a separate instance, Harris delivered a speech in February to honor recipients of the Congressional Space Medal of Honor. However, this speech also faced criticism for its oversimplified portrayal of space travel.
Recounting the journey of former NASA astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken, Harris stated, “They donned their spacesuits, bid farewell to their families, and ascended an elevator to a height of nearly 20 stories. After securing themselves in their seats, they awaited as the reservoirs beneath filled with thousands of gallons of fuel. And then, they embarked on their mission. Yes, they did,” Harris expressed, followed by her distinctive laughter.
