Senator John “King of Zingers” Kennedy (R-LA) couldn’t help but take a jab at Vice President Kamala Harris this Friday. He was reacting to a now-viral video that showed the VP channeling her inner teenager on a vocabulary quiz, while attempting to pin down that pesky term, “culture.”

On June 30, our vice president found herself in the cultural hot seat at the Essence Magazine’s “Festival of Culture” in New Orleans. The theme of the day? Define ‘culture’. Her response was more of a linguistic hokey-pokey than a crisp definition, and the clip spread faster than gossip at a high school reunion. Watch it below:

Senator Kennedy appeared on Fox news on Friday and torched Harris for her word salad response:

“She’s struggling for a couple of reasons,” Kennedy said. “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 might say that based on her performances that English is not her first, second, third, or even fourth language.”

“But number three, I think sound advice for anyone, politician or not, is always be yourself unless you suck. If you suck, have enough self-awareness to know you suck, and try to do better,” he added. “And I just don’t get the impression that the vice president is – she’s not being herself. She’s trying to sound smart instead of just saying what she believes and saying it in a clear articulate manner that the average American who’s busy can understand.”
