A political writer discovered that a vice-presidential speech sounded like a viral beauty pageant video from March 1.
Kamala Harris’s simplistic explanation of Russia’s proposed invasion of Ukraine raised eyebrows.
“Ukraine is a country in Europe, it exists next to another country called Russia,” she said in a video shared on Twitter.
“Russia is a bigger country, Russia is a powerful country, Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine so, basically, that is wrong,” she added.

Washington Examiner contributor Harry Khachatrian compared the Democrat’s response to former Miss Teen South Carolina Caitlin Upton’s bungled answer back in 2007.
“[I] found an older Kamala Harris clip, one of her foreign policy speeches–interesting stuff,” he said on Twitter.
Khachatrian then attached old viral footage of Upton’s controversial answer to why 20% of Americans cannot locate the United States on a world map.
“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation do not have maps,” the contestant said.
“I believe our educators over here in the United States should help the United States or should help South Africa and Iraq—and the Asian countries—so we will be able to build up our future,” she added.
After the media personality shared the video, fellow executive editor Seth Mandel chimed in.
“Terrifying,” he said on Twitter.

The Republican National Committee’s research team later shared a different video of Harris sharing “some more inspirational words” about the Biden administration changing its pandemic response strategy.
“It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is everyday,” she said in the video shared on Twitter.
“Everyday it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us, to slow this thing down,” she added.
