VP Harris offers child-like response when asked to give ‘layman’ explanation of Ukraine conflict

Vice President Kamala Harris was asked to give a “layman’s” explainer of the situation of the Ukraine/Russia situation and boy did she miss the mark spectacularly.

The geopolitical state of the world is convoluted and frightening, especially given the escalation of tensions between Russia and Ukraine following the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces. To those who don’t follow the news religiously, the situation may need a little bit of extra explanation, free of the political and diplomatic jargon that usually attaches itself to these situations.

While on the “Morning Hustle” radio program, co-h0st “Headkrack” asked the VP to break it down for the average Joe. Harris took it back to basics, but maybe too far.

“[I]n layman’s terms for people who don’t understand what’s going on and how can this directly affect the people of the United States?” Headkrack asked.

“So, Ukraine is a country in Europe.”

Oh boy.

“It exists next to another country called Russi. Russia is a bigger country,” she pointed out for good measure. “Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”

Listen for yourself:

Nailed it.
