Worst Post Game Speech Ever: Kamala Consoles Alma Mater’s Team After March Madness Loss

DES MOINES, IA - MARCH 16: U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff visit the Howard Bison locker room following their 96-68 loss to the Kansas Jayhawks during the first round of the 2023 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament held at Wells Fargo Arena on March 16, 2023 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Imagine you worked your tail off to make it in Division I basketball, worked your tail off to get your team to the Big Dance as a scrappy underdog and 16 seed, only to get demolished by nearly 30 points.

Could life get any more demoralizing? Well, if you were a member of the Howard University men’s basketball team, it did.

On Thursday after Howard was smoked by the number 1 seed University of Kansas, in waltzed Vice President Kamala Harris to the locker room for a pep-talk for the players from her alma mater.

Harris, Howard class of 1986, gave her best kindergarten-esque speech to the Bisons after they just had their hearts broken.

“You guys are so good, you guys are so good,” Harris said in her typical, drawn-out, patronizing voice. “You played hard. You played to the very last second.”

She continued, “You made all us Bisons, so, sooo proud.”

Harris is nothing if not consistent in her style of speech. After having to watch Willy Brown’s ex-girlfriend give public addresses, one thing is evident: She never knows what she is talking about and just throws out terms she thinks are associated with her audience until she receives applause.

So for example, if she’s in front of a woke mostly black crowd right after a natural disaster, she’ll spout off about equity-based hurricane aid, while throwing in every other woke buzzword under the sun. In front of Howard basketball, she threw around terms such as “hard work,” “excellence,” and “hustle” while never really making a point.


The veep ended her speech by awkwardly searching for the head coach, inviting the team to play “hooky” one Friday at the White House. She received polite applause.

As one Twitter user put it, “You just lost and this is what you have for a post-game speech? These are college age kids and she talks to them like they just played their first YMCA game. I wonder what she gave out for treats?!?”

Indeed, it’s tough to see how the pain of losing could get any worse for those young men, but having to listen to Harris’ rambling would do it.
