With President Biden’s disastrous State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, a very strong argument could be made to declare our esteemed Commander-in-Chief as the week’s top knucklehead – again. But that would be akin to beating a dead horse… with our apologies to dead horses. So, we’re going to cut Sleepy Joe a break this week and opt instead for that stellar sidekick of his: the one and only, Vice-President Kamala Harris.
Winner: Vice-President Harris thinks we’re all third graders and tells us, accurately, that we got what we voted for.
Kamala Harris hasn’t had many good weeks during her 13+ months as our Vice-President, but this week she outdid herself. It’s been difficult to take Harris seriously for a while now. Her 2020 presidential campaign in which she was polling fifth in her home state of California during the primaries was almost as laughable as that of Beto O’Rourke. Her insistence of giggling awkwardly at inopportune moments has become legendary. And her efforts as President Biden’s border czar have failed to an extent seldom seen in modern politics. But this week she gave us even more insight into just how much of a knucklehead she truly is.
Appropriately enough, on Monday, in a scene straight out of an SNL skit, Harris was introduced by First Lady Jill Biden who mistakenly announced Harris as the “president.” Dr. Jill apparently forgot – like so many of us wish we could – that the actual president is that grumpy old coot to whom she’s married, and who happened to be sitting only a few feet away from her. After some chuckling from Dr. Jill and the audience, Kamala stepped forward and took to the podium.
Harris explained, “Elections matter. And when folks vote, they order what they want — and in this case, they got what they asked for.” And never have truer words been spoken, Madame Vice-President. The problem is, you weren’t supposed to say that out loud. We’ve got rampant inflation, a catastrophic situation brewing in Ukraine, and your boss is about as popular as herpes. Rubbing voters’ noses in it is something to avoid.
The following day, the Vice-President appeared on a radio show called “The Morning Hustle,” and was asked by the host to “breakdown in laymen’s terms for folks who don’t know what’s going on” with the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Harris then responded, “Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine.”
This is how Kamala Harris thinks, apparently. ‘Laymen’s terms’ means that we assume everyone is about five years old. It’s worth noting that she really didn’t come across as if she was talking down to anyone, she seems to legitimately think everyone is just stupid. It’s also worth pointing out that she didn’t come across as sarcastic either. This is how Harris handles herself with people; she’s extremely clumsy. She has the social skills of a rock.
Only a few hours later during Biden’s State of the Union address, we saw one of the more terrifying scenes in recent memory. All in one screen, we saw our senile president stumbling through his speech, and behind him on the dais were his Constitutional successor: Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi… shutter the thought. During Biden’s speech, he struggled several times to make his points, and ultimately Kamala just couldn’t help herself.
As Biden was attempting to explain his position on Vladimir Putin and Ukraine, he stated “Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people.” As far as Sleepy Joe is concerned, there’s no doubt his thinking was ‘Iranian, Ukrainian, whatever.’ But Kamala Harris picked up on the gaffe and could be seen mouthing the word, “Ukrainian,” obviously trying to correct Biden’s mistake. Vice-President Harris, you see, is very smart, and she knows all about that country in Europe called Ukraine, and she knows how you’re supposed to refer to the people who live there.
Finally, on Thursday, right around the time Russia was bombing and seizing a Ukrainian nuclear power plant, Harris turned her focus to what really matters – the so-called ‘Equality Act’ – when she tweeted, “Let’s send the Equality Act to President Biden’s desk. We must increase protections for LGBTQ+ Americans across the country. The onslaught of state bills targeting transgender Americans and their families is wrong.” Because when we’re on the brink of World War III, and when millions of Ukrainians are fighting for their lives without our support, we should really be focused on leftist gender ideology and dismantling fundamental human norms.
Being VP shouldn’t be difficult. During the State of the Union address, just sit there, smile, pretend you’re listing, and every few minutes stand up clap like all the other Democrats. When you go on a radio show with a fellow leftist who throws you softball questions, just answer the questions like a normal person. And when you’re talking about your extremely unpopular administration, try not to remind everyone of the mistake they made in voting for you. But Kamala Harris couldn’t do any of those things this week because Kamala Harris is a knucklehead.
Honorable Mention #1: The Democratic Socialists confirm what we already suspected: they’re really not very bright.
Members of the Democratic Socialists of America include both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and the inimitable Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), so we shouldn’t expect significant displays of brainpower when the larger organization releases statements. In a communication released by the DSA, they showed us that not only do they lack basic comprehension of macroeconomics, they also have a childlike view of foreign affairs.
After rightly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the DSA added this idiotic notion, stating they “Reaffirm our call for the US to withdraw from NATO. and to end the imperialist expansionism that set the stage for this conflict.” This mindset undoubtedly comes from socialists’ unabashed affection for all-out communism, particularly the calamity that was the Soviet Union. But, generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to suggest dismantling the primary deterrent keeping Vladimir Putin from channeling his inner Doctor Evil and trying to take over the world. You might want to rethink that position, DSA.
Honorable Mention #2: FEMA warns us if we’re under a nuclear attack, don’t forget social distancing and be sure to wear your COVID mask.
In preparing citizens for a hypothetical nuclear attack, we might expect a sane, rational federal government to offer recommendations on a variety of issues. How to access safe drinking water, or how to minimize radiation sickness, or even how to defend oneself against possible invaders with firearms. But in modern America, rational government officials are shown the door, and sanity is forbidden. Today in the US, our tax dollars pay for idiocy like this from FEMA.
In the unthinkable event of a nuclear attack on our soil, there will be plenty of things to worry about. Where will you get your next meal? How will you heat your home? From where will you get information about what’s happening? You heard it here first: If we do get nuked, exactly 0.00% of the population will be worried about COVID, including the morons at FEMA.
