OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Vice President Kamala Harris was roasted on social media after she tweeted the country was “moving again” as thousands of commuters were stuck on a snowy, ice-covered Virginia highway.

The conditions were bad on Interstate 95 in eastern Virginia after a severe winter storm left some motorists stranded on the highway for more than 24 hours.

Harris came under fire after she tweeted about how the Biden administration’s recently passed infrastructure package has America “moving again.”

“Because of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, America is moving again,” the vice president tweeted. “That’s what infrastructure is all about: getting people moving.”

The tweet resulted in many users reminding her that thousands of Americans were quite literally stuck and not “moving along.”

The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro tweeted, “Could you possibly be any more incompetent? It’s truly astonishing.”

Kassy Dillon, a conservative activist, commented, “What a poorly timed tweet.”

Harris was roasted by many other conservative voices and Republican lawmakers for her politically inept response.

Leftists tend to live detached from reality as they so often indicate, and they’ve done so again in recent days as they rushed to blame Virginia’s Glenn Youngkin for not reacting quickly enough to a snowstorm that stranded thousands of motorists on I-95 earlier this week.

There’s just one problem, though: Youngkin is not officially governor of the Old Dominion yet; Democrat Ralph Northam still is until this coming weekend.

PJ Media’s Cameron Arcand:

As Interstate 95 in Northern Virginia dealt with the traffic jam of the century, which left some drivers stuck on the road for over a day because of heavy snow, liberals on Twitter decided to blame Republican Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin as opposed to the person who is really in charge– Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam.

“Does Virginia’s new Governor Youngkin know people have been stranded on I-95 for 15 hours? With no help in sight?” one user, who later deleted her tweet, asked.

Youngkin is going to be sworn in next Saturday, so this has nothing to do with him. But the tweets somehow go downhill from here.

Meanwhile, South Florida Sun-Sentinel columnist Fred Grimm responded to investigative journalist Jim DeFede’s tweet about the situation on Tuesday morning, with another incorrect take.

“Collateral damage between Glenn Youngkin and the wrath of God,” he tweeted.

Others also chimed in to blame Youngkin, falsely, for ‘failing as governor’ — though again, none of them bothered to explain how any governor, right or left, is supposed to interdict a snowstorm or wave a wand to magically make snow and ice disappear.

Others, including The Hill columnist and Fox News contributor Joe Concha, reminded Twitter users who really is still governor.

Eventually, Northam spoke about the mess on I-95, nothing that it was essentially an act of nature and that no one is ‘responsible’ but that things were getting done as fast as humanly possible with, oddly enough, an assist from “the weather.”
