VP Kamala Harris embarrassed the United States on the world stage yet again Thursday when she failed to provide a coherent response to a reporter asking for a timeline on US gas price hikes.
“And if I can ask you, Madame Vice President, President Biden has said that Americans will feel some pain for the sake of defending freedom and liberty. But there does seem to be no endgame in sight. How long should Americans expect, how long should we be bracing for this historic inflation and some unprecedented gas prices?” an AP reporter asked the vice president as she held a joint press conference in Bucharest, Romania with President Klaus Iohannis.
Predictably, Harris gave a rambling response that did not come close to answering the question on all Americans’ minds.
REPORTER: "How long should Americans expect — how long should we be bracing for — this historic inflation and some unprecedented gas prices?"

She didn't even come close to saying one word that could possibly have been construed as being in the same general universe as the question asked!

What a life it is to be a politician. Could you imagine doing this in school.
Teacher: "What is the capital of Michigan?"
Student: "Well. Michigan is a wonderful state. Iv been there. Beautiful beautiful lakes. If you ever get the chance you should go too."

A White House transcript gives a readout of her protracted response, which ultimately concluded “there is a price to pay for democracy.”
VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS: Sure. In terms of the discussions that the President Iohannis and I had, they ranged in subject, including the issue of the Black Sea, and I’ll let him explain in more detail as he would like.
But we are, again, fully aware and apprised because we are in constant communication with the President, with his administration here about the concerns that they have about the entire region and, frankly, the vulnerability.
All you have to do is look at the map and see that where Romania exists geographically — and as is the case for our Allies on the eastern flank — that there are potential vulnerabilities, which is why we say very clearly: We will dedicate — and have been especially enhancing, over the last few weeks — our support based on their current needs.
When we look at Putin’s actions — the previous question — there is — it is painful to watch. It is painful to watch what is happening to innocent people in Ukraine who just want to live in their own country and have pride in themselves as Ukrainians, who want to be home speaking the language they know, going to the church that they know, raising their children in the community where their families have lived for generations. And by the millions, now, are having to flee with nothing but a backpack.
And then you compound that with what happened a couple of days — the President talked about it today; I talked about it yesterday — in terms of a maternity hospital, pregnant women. We are — we have the unfortunate experience, all of us right now who are not in Ukraine, of witnessing horror.
So we are committed in everything we are doing. And, yes, then the President did say in the State of the Union, there is a price to pay for democracy. Got to stand with your friends. And as everybody knows, even in your personal life, being loyal to those friendships based on common principles and values, sometimes it’s difficult. Often, it ain’t easy. But that’s what the friendship is about, based on shared values. So that’s what we’re doing.
Earlier this week, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson criticized the Biden administration for sending Harris on foreign missions, saying she wasn’t “serious” enough to conduct diplomacy on behalf of the US, and adding she was better suited to greeting TikTok influencers and dating popular figures like daytime talk show host Montel Williams.
“This is just not a serious person, not surrounded by serious people, and yet we are in an extremely serious moment that demands seriousness,” Tucker said.
Indeed, Harris awkwardly burst into a cackle during the same meeting when asked whether the US would take in Ukrainian refugees.

Listen to how foolish she sounds in the following clip. This happened in front of world leaders.
