Vice President Kamala Harris is criticized for her “repetitive word salad” during a speech. The clip and part of the speech have been going viral online.
Harris was at Claflin University in South Carolina with Education Secretary Miguel Cardona with whom she participated in a roundtable discussion with student leaders. While she was speaking about how the Biden administration has focused and invested in community banks she accidentally started mentioning the word community repetitively.
In the clip, she can be heard saying, “We invested an additional $12 billion into community banks, because we know community banks are in the community, and understand the needs and desires of that community as well as the talent and capacity of community.”
Twitter users were quick to point out the use of the word community 5 times within a single sentence and started mocking Harris who is known for rambling and often getting stuck on a particular word or sentence. This speech habit is referred to by many as a “word salad.”
Clay Travis, OutKick’s founder, took to Twitter to mock Harris calling her “the greatest orator since Winston Churchill, on community banks.”
Kylee Griswold, a Federalist assistant editor, also called Harris’s segment “Profound”.
Screenwriter and columnist Matthew Betley also joined in to say that by now she should have had a copy editor telling her that they should try to not repeat a single word five times within one sentence.
This is only the latest example of Harris getting stuck on a word or passage. In March, while in Louisiana she had used the phrase “passage of time” four times within one paragraph.
