Vice President Kamala Harris, known for her speeches, once again found herself at the center of controversy following her remarks at the 2023 Essence Festival of Culture. Here’s what happened.
The Talk on Culture
While discussing topics such as small businesses and abortion, Harris attempted to define culture but left many confused and critical of her comments.
She Had Trouble Defining Culture
During her appearance, Harris offered her perspective on culture, stating, “Culture is — it is a reflection of our moment and our time. Right?”
“And present culture is the way we express how we’re feeling about the moment and we should always find times to express how we feel about the moment. That is a reflection of joy. Because you know, it comes in the morning.”
She Continued Her Talk
As laughter accompanied her words, Harris continued, “We have to find ways to also express the way we feel about the moment in terms of just having language and a connection to how people are experiencing life. And I think about it in that way, too.”
It Immediately Drew Criticism and Confusion
These remarks immediately drew criticism and confusion from social media users.
Social Media Erupted With Mockery
As social media erupted with reactions, Harris became the subject of mockery and scrutiny, further highlighting the challenges she faces as a public speaker.
She Was Like a Child
Many compared her statement to a child attempting to give a book report on a book they hadn’t read.
Others found it cringe-worthy and emptily delivered.
This Is Not the First Time
Harris has faced similar criticism in the past, where her speeches have been described as confusing and lacking substance.
The Abortion Speech
In April, during a speech about abortion rights, Harris once again left people puzzled.
Her Words Garnered Ridicule
Her words, such as “to see the moment in time in which we exist and are present, and to be able to contextualize it, to understand where we exist in the history and the moment as it relates not only to the past but the future,” garnered ridicule and comparisons to a boring corporate HR seminar.
Many Notable Figures Shared Their Thoughts
These incidents have led to public figures expressing their disapproval of Harris’s performance as Vice President.
What Is She Talking About?
Jeanine Pirro, a prominent figure, criticized Harris for not making it easier for other women to come forward and prove their capabilities.
Poll Numbers Struggling
Pirro went on to say, “I don’t know what she’s talking about whenever she opens her mouth. And you know what? Her poll numbers are lower than Joe’s poll numbers! So, I understand why they feel the need to keep her given that she was picked because of identity politics.”
The Talk Lacks Authenticity
The challenges Harris faces as a woman in a position of power are further amplified by her public speaking style, which some perceive as ineffective and lacking authenticity.
Following in Joe’s Footsteps
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident. One Twitter user wrote, “Seems she is following in Joe’s footsteps of rambling!”
Trying to Hit a Word Count?
Another user added, “She speaks like I’m trying to hit a word count in an essay.”
