While addressing transportation issues at American Rescue Plan Workforce Development Summit, Vice President Kamala Harris had to struggle with her words.
Harris stated, “Together we are investing in apprenticeships and training programs that give workers the skills needed to take on jobs with better wages, better benefits, and in particular workers from underrepresented backgrounds.”
After talking about transportation, she was unable to communicate her intended message coherently.
“Together we are expanding transportation access. Harris stated that it seems like a minor issue, but it is a major problem”. Harris said, “You have to get there and be able to get there to do the work and get back.”

Harris’ seemingly incomprehensible statement on transportation was mocked by social media users.
“It’s almost like she has one word in her head and then repeats it three or four times in a matter of seconds”. “This happens all the time,” wrote one user.
It’s like she gets one word stuck in her head and repeats it 3 or 4 times in 10 seconds. This happens all the time! https://t.co/mWsFjPK6ys

Another user tweeted, “More alphabet soup Kamala.”
Harris’ Wednesday comment is not the first time Harris has had to struggle to communicate her thoughts coherently.
Harris struggled to find the right words when she spoke about Roe v. Wade’s overturning by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Harris stated that freedom is a “great aspiration” of the nation. “But the expansion of freedom is not an inevitable process and it is certainly not something that happens by chance.”
She also struggled to speak in March alongside Andrew Holness, Jamaica’s Prime Minister.
Harris, who was delivering a speech in March, Louisiana, rambled about “significance” during which he repeated the phrase four times in 32 seconds.
Harris also stumbled over her words when she spoke in Poland. Harris stated, “I am here, on the northern flank of the eastern flank, discussing what we have in terms NATO allies and the eastern flank, and what’s at stake at the moment, and what’s at stake this moment, are some of our guiding principles.”
