Can we get a new Vice President? This one’s broken.
During a speech on Monday in Ghana, Vice President Kamala Harris struggled with her words again, resulting in a disjointed delivery that has been likened to a “word salad” by some observers, adding to a growing list of similar incidents on the international stage.
In transcript provided by Fox, Kamala stood there in Ghana and said, “There are a number of things on the issue of the economy as a whole that we must do … and a lot of that work is the work that I am here to do on the continent.”
The purpose of Harris’ visit to Africa was to enhance the United States’ connections with the region. Meanwhile, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, spearheaded by President Xi Jinping, has led to an increase in its power and influence in the area.
Kamala then said, “As you have mentioned, we have had today, this afternoon, a wide-ranging discussion.”
She then said, “We have discussed a number of important topics. Including the importance of concepts and priorities such as freedom and liberty.”
Kamala then did simple math of the people of Africa and said, “The median age on the continent of Africa is 19. Think about what that means in terms of potential. Think about the fact that by 2050, one in four people occupying a place on Mother Earth will be on this continent, and what that means.”
Following her speech, numerous online users ridiculed Harris’ performance, and a columnist named Ryan Ledendecker even went as far as to describe it as “utterly cringe-worthy.”
