On Wednesday Vice President Kamala Harris faced a lot of criticism over her comments about yellow school buses during a speech where she promoted the new replacement electric vehicles being used.
In the event which took place in Seattle, Harris noted her love for the “yellow school buses”. Behind the Vice President as she spoke were four electric school buses. As part of her speech, Harris also said that there was $1 billion being awarded to those school districts that chose to replace their vehicles with electric ones. The funding is part of the bipartisan infrastructure bill that was passed in 2021.
As part of her speech, Harris also made some nostalgic remarks about the “yellow school bus.” She noted how this is a part of your experiences as a child and it is a time filled with happy memories from school. As she said this also helps add to the nostalgia associated with that time.
Many on Twitter mocked Harris for these remarks.
Radio host Clay Travis tweeted that Harris had just used a press conference to profess her love for yellow buses. He also argued that Democrats should not be letting her talk in public.
CNN contributor Mary Katherine Ham also joined in by encouraging Harris to sing Wheels on the Bus.
Republican activist Matthew Foldi also took to Twitter to say, “Find yourself someone who loves you as much as Kamala Harris loves Venn diagrams and yellow school buses.”
