Vice President Kamala Harris touched a political third rail when she dropped the M-word on TV last week.
“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.”
VP Kamala Harris tells @JudyWoodruff that she knows many have reached "a level of malaise" nearly two years into the pandemic.

“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.
For you youngsters who don’t understand why Democrats never utter the word “malaise” https://t.co/elCECvVRhi
