Vice President Kamala Harris was asked to give a “layman’s” explanation of the Russia invasion of Ukraine and proceeded to deliver something you’d expect from a small child.
The second-in-line to the nuclear football gave the hilarious/terrifying explanation in an interview on the radio program The Morning Hustle.
“You’ve seen everything that’s going on right now in Ukraine,” the host states. “Break it down in layman’s terms for people who don’t understand what’s going on and how could this directly affect the people of the United States.”
The Veep broke it down in layman’s terms, then broke it down some more.
You knew we were in for a heck of a ride when she provided this initial insight:
“Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine, so basically that’s wrong.”
Admittedly, I don’t know what kind of audience listens to The Morning Hustle, but I like to believe even the ‘laymen’ are slightly more advanced than what Kamala provided.
See Putin run. Putin runs fast. Stop Putin, Stop!
Fortunately, she did pick up the pace a little bit right after the initial analysis.
“It goes against everything that we stand for, there are terms that we use we say we respect the sovereignty the territorial integrity of countries, right? Their independence,” she continued.
“Russia has gone into Ukraine militarily unprovoked, with no justification other than to exercise its power to take over another country.”
Harris is by no means an idiot – she’s a lawyer. But this inability to break down a complex issue and make it more palatable to the minds of people who don’t pay attention to foreign policy and instead start speaking like a babbling child is worrisome.
Yet another demonstration that she is an awkward figure who can’t relate to the average person.
When The Morning Hustle host asked about sanctions imposed on Russia, Vice President Kamala Harris reverted once again to the child-like explanation.
“So you know if you’re a parent and you tell your children to do this, the punishment is gonna be that, right? And we hope that by doing that it will deter our children from doing the wrong thing, right? So that’s deterrence, so that’s where we started with the sanctions,” she explained.
“And when Russia actually went in we are implementing the sanctions.”
Kamala Harris’ awkwardness was on display again earlier this week when she “went off script” and provided a soundbite that should be in every GOP politician’s ads going forward until the 2022 midterms.
“As we all know, elections matter,” she said in a cringe-worthy moment at the White House. “And when folks vote, they order what they want, and in this case, they got what they asked for.”
Yep, we sure got what we asked for. Thanks all 81 million of you who voted for this.
According to a NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ poll, 58 percent of respondents stated they were not confident in Kamala Harris’s ability to step in for Biden as president if needed.
Or, to put it in layman’s terms Ms. Harris:
The presidency is like a big adult office job, but people are scared that someone who couldn’t run a paper route might one day be in charge of the shiny, candy-like, big red nukey nuke button.
