Word Salad: “Unintelligible, extremely disorganized speech or writing manifested as a symptom of a mental disorder.”
Since being installed into the White House, Kamala Harris has been able to put out some of the worst word salad speeches and replies to questions the American people have ever heard. But she now has competition for her status as the least-articulate member of the regime with new White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre delivering multiple gourmet word salads on her first day on the job.
Here’s a perfect example. When asked twice to explain what Joe Biden meant when his handlers Tweeted about taxing rich corporations to drive down consumer costs, Jean-Pierre made Kamala Harris proud with a perfect word salad response. She strung together talking points, mostly read directly from her cheat sheet, that didn’t answer any question at all, let alone the one she was asked.
Watch what happens when Peter Doocy asks the new White House press secretary how raising taxes on the rich brings down inflation, as Biden tweeted last week.

The easy answer to the question is that it won’t. There is no economic theory outside of pure Neo-Marxism where taxing rich corporations more will bring down the cost of goods and services for consumers. It has the opposite effect; the more the government charges producers, the more the producers must charge consumers to compensate. In Neo-Marxism, this is subsidized by price controls that force producers to either shutter their businesses or hand them over to government, which is one of the biggest reasons socialism seems to work in the beginning only to collapse under the weight of its own destructive tenets in the not-so-long-term.
It’s only Karine Jean-Pierre’s first day so we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. Dodging questions is easy. Eventually she’ll master the art of her predecessor to blame Republicans, Trump, Putin, or Peter Doocy for all the evil of the world.
