Tuesday, co-host of "The View" Sara Haines said she finds it difficult to listen to Vice President Kamala Harris' word concoctions and argued that the administration needs to manage her better.
The hosts were discussing Harris, saying that while she aided President Joe Biden in securing the black vote in 2020, bigotry and sexism could play a role in determining whether voters support her and Biden in 2024, as The Daily Caller reported.
“As someone who has a hard time listening to her do speeches,” Haines said, “she has a tendency – they call it the word salad, I don’t know if she’s going off script, ad-libbing or improving, if that’s the case she needs to change. If it’s the scriptwriter, they need to change the scriptwriter.”
‘The View’ went on to play a clip that showed Harris discussing the passage of time in what many considered a confusing and frustrating way.
“The significance of the passing of time, right? The significance of the passage of time. So when you think about it, there’s great significance to the passage of time,” Harris said.
The hosts also played several other "word-salad" moments where it seemed the vice president got lost in the midst of her statement or backtracked while talking on a topic.
“If she’s reading a teleprompter, they need to immediately fix that. You are the vice president of the United States. The administration and president are responsible for protecting her,” Haines said.
“I would add that as a lawyer, you’re generally old when you’re speaking that you speak in threes, because that’s what people remember. So, if you’re going to talk about a car, you talk about the car, the red car, the fast red car,” Hostin said.
Co-host Joy Behar also weighed in on the opposing side, arguing, “Trump is the king of word salad” before the panel moved on to other political issues, specifically that of Trump and Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Harris's phrasing isn't the only issues to cause concern, however. The vice president made headlines again this Memorial Day when many remembered her Memorial Day 2021 tweet where, instead of remembering fallen heroes, she asked that Americans "enjoy the long weekend."
Newsweek reported that Harris was "bashed" for her tweet, made during the first occurrence of the holiday while she was in office.
On Memorial Day 2023, her comments were much more in line with what other leaders of the executive branch have said, with the VP posting a photo of herself at a memorial along with the president and other military leaders.
