Kamala Harris mocked for gushing over ‘yellow school bus’: ‘I really can’t let her speak in public’
Vice President Kamala Harris faced another round of derision after professing her love for “yellow school buses” during her performance in Seattle on Wednesday.
Harris spoke at Lumen Field in Seattle with four electric school buses to announce nearly $1 billion being awarded to school districts to replace older buses with electric vehicles. These funds came in part from the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in 2021.
During his speech, Harris commented on “yellow school bus” nostalgia.
“Who doesn’t love a yellow school bus, right? Can you raise your hand if you love a yellow school bus? Many of us went to school on a yellow school bus, right? It’s part of our experience growing up. It’s part of the nostalgia, the memories of excitement and the joy of going to school to be with your favorite teacher, to be with your best friends and to learn. The school bus takes us there,” she said.
These comments were mocked on Twitter as another example embarrassing moments from the vice president.
“The Democrats have been hiding Kamala but she just had a press conference talking about yellow school buses and my god they really can’t let her talk publicly about anything,” radio host Clay Travis tweeted.
“Okay, I’ve changed my mind about Fetterman,” joked The Spectator editor Stephen Miller.
CNN contributor Mary Katherine Ham also joked: “Please sing Wheels on the Bus, please sing Wheels on the Bus.”
“Selina Meyer,” tweeted Federalist author Eddie Scarry, referring to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character on the HBO comedy “Veep.”
Philidelphia radio host Rich Zeoli wrote: “Inner monologue: Don’t joke, don’t joke.”
Republican activist Matthew Foldi tweeted: “Find yourself someone who loves you as much as Kamala Harris loves Venn diagrams and yellow school buses.”
President Biden was also mocked on Twitter Wednesday for a speech that discussed inflation and his plan to reduce the cost of “junk benefits” for families. During his speech, Biden suggested that paying for more spacious airline seats was one of these “garbage” that targeted “people of color” the most.
“Some airlines, if you want six more inches between you and the seat in front, you pay more money. But you don’t know that until you buy the ticket. Look, folks, these are garbage fees, they’re unfair, and they’ve hit marginalized Americans the hardest, especially people with low-income people and people of color,” Biden said.
Harris has repeatedly been praised on social media for various gaffes and unusual mannerisms. Although the mainstream media has largely ignored these cases, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” mocked Harris with a satirical video comparing her to the lead character on “Veep” in early October.
