The Amazing Criswell

The Amazing Kamala’s Weird Speech Habits Explained!

Plenty of commentators have wondered how it is that Vice President Kamala Harris has the ability to use so many words yet say so little. Some speculate that she refuses to read her staff’s briefing materials and so rambles. Others that she just loves the sound of her own nasally voice. Others say that she just isn’t too bright.

We believe there’s another possible explanation. Being from California, Harris no doubt was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood fare. Is it too much of a stretch to believe that she watched “Plan 9 From Outer Space as a child, and was so enthralled with the opening prediction from the Amazing Criswell that she’s modeled her public speaking style on him?

Watch the two video clips below and decide for yourself. The first is a Harris clip that has been making the rounds this week and is the subject of much mockery and derision, in which she ponders the “significance of the passage of time.” Below that is the opening scene from Plan 9 in which Criswell talks about “the future.”

There’s another connection: “Plan 9” is considered the worst movie ever made, and Biden-Harris is shaping up to be the worst presidential administration in history.

The possible Criswell connection raises another important question about our current vice president. Does Harris like sleeping in caskets, too?

If you have your own theories about Harris’ logorrhea, feel free to use the comment section below (but follow our comments guidelines and keep it civil).
