QUOTE OF THE DAY: Kamala’s Mini-‘Malaise Speech’

Vice President Kamala Harris touched a political third rail when she dropped the M-word on TV last week.

THE QUOTE

“I fully appreciate that there is a level of malaise,” Harris told “PBS NewsHour” anchor Judy Woodruff when asked why the “Biden-Harris agenda” is “stalled.”

“We’re two years into this thing, you know,” Harris went on, referring to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We want to get back to normal, we all do. But we have to then do the tough and hard work of pushing through, with solutions, understanding that there are going be challenges, but let’s meet the challenges where they are.”

  • “And let’s also take a moment to see the progress we’ve achieved,” Harris added, capping her string of cliches.

THE REACTION

Even Democrats – who have increasingly questioned Harris’ political abilities – face-palmed at her evocation of then-President Jimmy Carter’s infamous 1979 “malaise speech.”
