Vice President Kamala Harris sparked next-level mockery on social media after a speech from the White House touting high-speed internet.
The Biden administration announced Monday that more than 10 million households are enrolled in the broadband affordability program known as the Affordable Connectivity Program, saying that they’re “committed to removing barriers to high-speed, affordable internet access.”
President Joe Biden had tapped Harris to lead the administration’s efforts to get more Americans access to high-speed internet and on Monday, along with Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, the vice president spoke about the status of the plan.
But her explanation of high-speed internet left many wondering if she was addressing a room full of toddlers.
“In the 21st century, high-speed internet is a necessity. Not a luxury – a necessity,” Harris said. “Our world has moved online and that is why from day one, the president and I have fought to make it easier for everyone to access and afford high-speed internet.”
“It is a historic accomplishment,” she added. “This milestone means more entrepreneurs are building digital businesses. More families are staying connected. More children in our country are able to do their homework at home. And this is only the beginning.”
Much of our world has moved online. Thanks to our Affordable Connectivity Program, we’re lowering high-speed internet costs for working people.https://t.co/fmN5LHkIWi

“What do you use the internet for?”
“Well, I don’t know how I would get paper towels any other way!”

The VP explains the internet to a man waking up from a 40 year coma. A man who may be interested in buying paper towels.

Does she not get her schedule ahead of time? Why does she always seem like that kid in class that forgot it was speech day and is just winging it? https://t.co/FH5csDcIY3
