Kamala Harris gave a cringe-worthy patronizing speech to the Howard basketball team after their lost to Kansas on Thursday.
The vice president said, “You guys were so good. You played hard. You played to the very last second. You made all of us Bison so, so proud. You showed the world who Bison are.”
Howard lost 96-68 to 1. seed Kansas in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Harris continued, “You know, I was at Howard back in the day, where we were just happy that there was a game. Much less getting to this place, right? And I see Bison literally all over the world and we’ve been talking about you, this team. You make us so proud. So I know you may not be feeling great right now, okay, but know who you are. You are excellent.”
Congratulations to my @HowardU Bison on a tremendous season. You make us so proud. pic.twitter.com/twSLZgI9Af

Hahahah. I'd love to see the players' faces. They aren't children….

Talk about adding insult to injury. Listening to her talk is bad enough, but talking to them like they’re 5 years old. 🤦🏻♀️

I hope that there is never a national crisis where Kamala Harris needs to go on air and try to convince the country that everything is going to be okay.

Why does it always sound like she's talking to second-graders? So condescending.
