"Culture is, it is a reflection of our moment in our time, right?" the Vice President said. "And, and, and present culture is the way we express our feeling about the moment. And, and we should always find times to express how we feel about that moment that is a reflection of joy."

Gallagher then promptly asked the Senator his thoughts on her speech.

"She's struggling for a couple of reasons," Kennedy claimed. "Number one, she doesn't appear to be prepared. Number two, no matter how well-prepared you are, you have to be able to express yourself. And with respect, I would say the vice president needs to work on being a little more articulate. Some–a [senator] might say that based on her performances, that English is not her first, second, third, or even fourth language."

This was not the first time Harris has stumbled on her words in an important speech. Last year, she declared "When we talk about the children of the community, they are children of the community," in one of her public appearances, and on another podium she kept repeating the phrase "significance of the passage of time."
