I’m not saying that Biden’s vice president isn’t human, but I’ve never seen someone struggle to relate to people more. The White House keeps Kamala Harris on a short leash and it’s moments like this that explain why. In an attempt to seem, I don’t know, relatable? Harris went on a weirdly inhuman tangent about yellow school buses.
Why? Because it’s Kamala Harris.
“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 a 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.
Harris’s odd behaviour didn’t go unnoticed and folks from all sides joined in on the fun:
“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.”
“Selina Meyer,” The Federalist author Eddie Scarry tweeted, referencing 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.”
Harris spoke at Lumen Field in Seattle with a backdrop of four electric school buses to announce nearly $1 billion being awarded to school districts to replace older buses with electric vehicles. This funding came in part from the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in 2021.
