With the Biden admin and POTUS’ apologists still doing inverted backflips to try and contain the damage after special counsel Robert Hur’s damning report on Biden’s handling of classified documents, now is as good a time as any for a refresher on his second in command as the 2024 presidential campaign season kicks into high gear.
Kamala Harris being Joe Biden’s vice president naturally means the spotlight has been more on her over the last three years than you typically see on veeps considering Biden’s age and frequent memory lapses, both of which were highlighted in the Hur report.

But as talk turns to “what about Kamala?” as rumors again bubble to the surface about Democrats dumping Biden from the 2024 ticket, it’s important to point out that in addition to her lack of meaningful political skills and policy gravitas, Kamala Harris has a big comms problem.
This is not just because her comms department has a high turnover rate but also because Kamala herself is a word salad nightmare, something brilliantly and hilariously outlined by Kamala impersonator Elsa Kurt, who we’ve written about before and who in early February explained in Kamala-speak basically what every platitude-filled Kamala Harris speech sounds like.

The clip was even shared by conservative actor/firebrand James Woods, which had Kurt all kinds of fangirling:

In another clip worth mentioning here, Kurt did commentary on one of Harris’ electric vehicle promotional stops, pointing to some of the more absurd and embarrassing moments like Harris not knowing how to plug things into an electrical outlet:
Kamala, just plug it in🔌. You should know how it works 🤷♀️🤭😂 pic.twitter.com/2otQfgUnuu

Kurt has got Harris’ annoying mannerisms, fake laughter, and ability to make something simple complex down pat.
According to her TikTok page, Kurt has done over 120 Kamala impersonations during Harris’ vice presidency, including two that have nearly two million views each.
As fun as those videos are to watch, they shine an unflattering spotlight on perhaps Kamala Harris’ biggest problem going into the 2024 elections: her inauthenticity.
It’s something even the Democrat apologists at the Washington Post touched on in December 2021, something I wrote about at the time
Even a casual observer who isn’t a political junkie can simply watch her as she speaks to see how the lack of authenticity shines through. Her words sound scripted, fake, and she oftentimes comes across as ill-informed on the matters she’s being asked to address.
The vast majority of Harris’ problems are self-inflicted, especially the authenticity issue, and as all eyes turn to her in the midst of the Hur report blowback, and as she now paints herself as “ready to serve,” the simple fact of the matter is… she’s not.
