Joe Biden has never been eloquent but he used to be able to string a few words together so you knew he was completely wrong on everything. But his vice-president is so inarticulate that she is incomprehensible. We’ve gathered together some of our favorite examples of her Word Salad moments.
Here she is at Highland Park, Illinois, following the tragic shooting that took place there on Independence Day.

She met with the prime minister of Jamaica. The two talked about COVID-19 before Harris addressed the media.
“For Jamaica, one of the issues that has been presented as an issue that is economic in the way its impact has been the pandemic. … We will assist Jamaica in COVID recovery by assisting in terms of the recovery efforts in Jamaica that have been essential,” she told reporters after the meeting.
She went into a library in Louisiana and said this:
“We were all doing a tour of the library here and talking about the significance of the passage of time, right?” Harris said while promoting internet access in rural areas. “The significance of the passage of time. So when you think about it, there is great significance to passage of time. There is such great significance to the passage of time when you think of a day in the life of our children.”
And this was another stand out from a woman who by all accounts passed the bar to become an attorney. During an appearance on the syndicated “Morning Hustle” radio program, Harris was asked by co-host Headkrack to explain the conflict “in layman’s terms for people who don’t understand what’s going on and how can this directly affect the people of the United States?”
Speaking slowly, Harris began, “So, Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia,” she continued. “Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”
And this classic on Covid strategy:

“It is time for us to do what we have been doing. And that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down” pic.twitter.com/8I52Q43050
Not content with looking like an idiot here, she went to France and said this “We must, together, work together to see where we are, where we are headed, where we are going and our vision for where we should be, but also see it as a moment, yes, to, together, address the challenges.”

When asked about cutting off oil imports from Russia:
As you know, on this issue, for example, we applaud Germany in terms of what it has done as it relates to Nord Stream 2,” Harris said. “As it relates to what we need to do domestically as well as what we need to do in terms of this issue generally, we have, as the president said, to reevaluate what we’re doing in terms of strategic oil reserves here in the United States to make sure that it will not have an impact, or we can mitigate the impact on the American consumer.”
And when asked whether President Biden was considering banning Russian energy imports, noting that the United States still imports approximately 600,000 barrels of oil per day she blathered some more.
.@VP Harris on why Biden’s still buying oil from Russia: "Understanding that right now on the issue of energy, our allies have stood firm and unified in a way that many of the pundits didn’t predict would happen, to ensure that we are unified in our approach to this issue." pic.twitter.com/vyiHauZOMm— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) March 2, 2022
