If there was an award for the wordiest non-answers a world leader could give, Vice President Kamala Harris would win it for what she’s previously said as VP and for the rest of her tenure.

Harris served us her latest word salad at last week’s Essence Festival, which Fox News describes as “a salute to Black women highlighting culture, empowerment conversations with the nation’s thought leaders and, of course, music.” 

As the first black female vice president–and a liberal to boot–Harris was an obvious invitee. She of all people should be able to clearly and beautifully articulate the power of black culture, right?

Yeah…unfortunately not.

“Well, I think culture is eh-eh- it is a reflection of our moment and our time, right?” asked Harris, with a great desperation in her eyes. “And, and present culture is the way we express how we’re feeling about the moment. And, and we should always find times that we express how we feel about the moment as a reflection of joy because ev- eh- you know, it comes in the morning?”

At that point, she interrupted herself with her characteristic cackle, while the hosts were just trying to recover from the secondhand embarrassment.

“We have to find ways to also express the way we feel about the moment in terms of just having language and a connection to how people are experiencing life and I think about it in that way too,” Harris said, elaborating on her answer.

It’s almost like we need an army of translators to accompany Harris everywhere she goes, because no one can understand a thing she’s talking about.

“Embarrassing moments for the current administration are truly become [sic] the norm and not incredibly rare one-offs,” remarked OutKick reporter David Hookstead.

YouTuber Ranting Monkey gave us one of the best tweets on the matter, writing, “Kamala will go down in history as the most quotable woman to even be a woman who makes quotes about quotes a woman might quote.”

What a pity it is that the most politically influential black woman in America can’t describe her own culture.
