Vice President Kamala Harris received a new round of mockery after talking about her love of “yellow school buses” during a Wednesday appearance in Seattle.
Harris spoke at Lumen Field in Seattle in front of four electric school buses, announcing a nearly $1 billion grant to school districts to replace older buses with electric vehicles. This funding was provided in part by the 2021 bipartisan infrastructure bill.
Harris mentioned the nostalgia of a “yellow school bus” during her speech.
“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 the yellow school bus, right? It’s part of our experience growing up. It’s part of nostalgia, a memory of the excitement and 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 remarks were mocked on Twitter as yet another example of the vice president’s embarrassing moments.
“Democrats have been hiding Kamala, but she just had a press conference and talked about yellow school buses, and my goodness they really can’t let her talk in public about anything,” Radio host Clay Travis tweeted.
“Okay changed my mind about Fetterman,” The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller joked.
CNN contributor Mary Katherine Ham also joked, “Please sing Wheels on the Bus, please sing Wheels on the Bus.”
The Federalist author Eddie Scarry tweeted, “Selina Meyer,” referring to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character on the HBO comedy “Veep.”
Philadelphia radio host Rich Zeoli wrote, “Internal monologue: Don’t make the joke, don’t make the joke.”
Republican activist Matthew Foldi tweeted, “Find yourself someone who loves you as much as Kamala Harris loves Venn diagrams and yellow school buses.”
