Caroline Kennedy: Sen. You Know, D-NY?


I guess the apple fell a long way from the tree.

Caroline Kennedy, who is pursuing the US Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton, is being rightly criticized for her horrendous speaking skills.  Her father, John F. Kennedy, who was a legendary speaker, might not be too impressed.

According to the New York Daily News, Ms. Kennedy used the words “you know” in her interviews more than 400 times since Friday with several media outlets.

Here are the “You know” counts:

  • New York Times: 130 times
  • NY1: 80 times
  • Daily News: 200 times

To reduce filler words, Kennedy needs to learn how to pause.  Close  your mouth instead of uttering the  filler word.
