Five Of the Most Embarrassingly Awkward Moments From Harris' Recent Euro Trip

Vice President Kamala Harris arrived in Europe mid-week to serve as the mouthpiece for the Biden administration's response to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, the masses of Ukrainian refugees now flooding into Western Europe, and what all this chaos means for the United States and the rest of the world.

Of course, that required one to be able to decipher the word salad she served up during both her press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda Thursday and her speech in Romania Friday morning.

From laughing about the refugee crisis to shrugging off Americans' concerns about inflation and gas prices, here are just five of the most embarrassing moments of incompetence from Harris' most recent trip:

When she responded to questions about the Ukrainian refugee crisis with a bizarre laughing fit and a line about how “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”


When she called for a UN “investigation” into potential Russian war crimes by offering the most elementary explanation of the Ukraine crisis possible.

I'm not sure that was English.

When she looked to Poland’s president to answer a question about how long Americans in the U.S. can expect record inflation and historic gas prices, then answered by saying something about the Black Sea and a map.

When she claimed, "We are witnessing a playbook: The Russian playbook." Then proceeded to state a whole bunch of painfully obvious and not at all clarifying points.

Harris has become the master of using a staggering number of words to say absolutely nothing.

Harris says “There is a price to pay for democracy,” then rambles about friendship as though she’s talking to a group of 4th graders.

Maybe she can make everyone matching bracelets.
