Kamala Harris Tells Bizarre Story about Coconut Tree, Is Only One in Room Who Laughs

Vice President Kamala Harris told a bizarre story about a coconut tree but was the only person in the room who laughed about it.

Harris told the story while swearing in commissioners of the “White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Hispanics.”

The VP apparently thought her story was funny but no one else was laughing.

She says in the video below: “And it’s not just simply about financial resources; that is a very big part of it.

“But it’s also about: What is the culture of the environment?

“How are we approaching this issue in a way that we also understand we cannot support and help our young people if we also — don’t also look at the context in which those young people live and are being raised?

“Which means necessarily, because our — our edict and our mission is not to come out and say, ‘Well, we could do this better.’

“Part of the extension of the work you will do is, yes, focused on our young leaders and our young people, but understanding we also then have to be clear about the needs of their parents and their grandparents and their teachers and their communities, because none of us just live in a silo.

“Everything is in context.

“My mother used to — she would give us a hard time sometimes, and she would say to us, ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with you young people. You think you just fell out of a coconut tree?'”

Harris then burst out laughing to crickets from the crowd.

“You exist in the context of all in which you live and what came before you,” she awkwardly added as she tried to move on.

Harris continued:

“So all of this is part of the work of this group of extraordinary leaders who will help inform and advise how we think about our work and, like the Secretary said, give us feedback, give us counsel, give us direction in how we best achieve our mission, doing it in a way that we fully understand the challenges and the opportunities.

“And so with that, it is my great honor to swear you in as members of the President’s Advisory Commission on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Hispanics.

“You know, I think there’s so much about the mission of this commission and the work that we all do that requires us to see that, to see those bright eyes, to see those beautiful smiles, because they believe that we believe in them.

“And it is because of that that they aspire, they have ambition, and they achieve all of their God-given potential.

“Having leaders who I think so many of us have had as mentors — as the people who raised us, as the communities that raised us, that looked at us — I’ll speak for myself — and they convinced us we were special.

“We weren’t particularly special.

“But we believed them when they told us that we were.

“And so we thought then about what we could achieve and to our responsibility, and we had a sense of optimism about what we could do and, for so many of us, doing something that someone like us had never done before.

“It’s about a perspective, it’s about a state of mind, and then fueling that with the resources that are necessary to help all of our young people understand how special they are and how deserving they are of all the support we can give them.”
