Vice President Kamala Harris came under withering criticism after saying that “communities of color” would be the first to receive federal assistance following Hurricane Ian’s devastation in Florida.

“We have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity,” she said during a discussion at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum. “If we want people to be in an equal place sometimes we need to take into account those disparities and do that work.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ spokeswoman Christina Pushaw blasted Harris for the comment.

“This is false. @VP’s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background,” she wrote on Twitter.

“If a hurricane hits a state, we should expect the government to help all those affected: black, brown white, purple, green,” said Sadanand Dhume, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Even Elon Musk weighed in, saying that the allocation of resources “should be according to greatest need, not race or anything else.”

  1. A criminally insane TREASONOUS racist America hating witch.
    Together with that demented Alzheimer diseased Marxist DemonRat zombie making believe he is President,
    they are out to deliberately destroy America as we know it.
    G-d have mercy on this once great nation

  2. Putting minorities first and discriminating against non minorities is standard government practice . No reason for specific outrage is this case. Take KH herself. Does anyone think she would be vice president if she weren’t a black women? Joe Biden very clearly gave that as a criteria for choosing her before he made his decision.

  3. What is wrong with you, YWN?
    Foot in mouth would imply that she agreed that she said something stupid; she does not, of course.
    Absolutely scary. What a witch.
    And didja’ll catch when she literally implied (michlall hen atah shomeia lav) that privileged white people were responsible for the hurricane?
    Lollllll she is so deranged.
    And btw, when did she start looking and acting so much like crazy bird nance girl?

  4. Actually I just listened to it again so not sure what she meant in that weird point about white people being responsible for things… maybe she meant that they’re responsible for poverty if others…?

  5. If this comment comes to haunt in 37 days increasing magnitude of Red Tsunami, then this bitch unwittingly blessed America 🇺🇸 like בלק ובלעם unwittingly blessed We Jewish ✡ People

  6. this is just SO obviously messed up. “communities of color” (sic) are only needy if you look at the world through a terribly racist lens. and imposing that racist ideology under the guise of “equity” is ludicrous. welcome to newspeak.

  7. Doug Emhoff, Harris’s multi-millionaire lawyer husband, is a Jew. For some reason, Doug can’t bring himself to marry a Jewish woman (Kamala is the second gentile with whom he has tied the knot). At his wedding with Kamala, she insisted that SHE break the glass. Of course, because it’s Doug, he happily agreed. But then again, “Mai nafka mina?” (Read “nafka” variously.)

    As my mother a”h used to say, “Az meh est chazzer, zol rinnen fun der burd” (“If you eat pork, let it run from the beard”). In other words, if you’re going to sin, really do it with a full heart.

    Whenever I have the misfortune to hear our cackling vice-president, I think of Doug and how proud he must feel. “That’s my Eishes Chayil!”

  8. Not sure why people think it was a gaffe. I think she said it on purpose! The paragraph This is the way she thinks. It’s always been the way she thinks.

    And as far as the left questioning her, there are a lot of leftists who don’t want her on the ticket in any capacity, in 2024. They think that she is the worst possible candidate.
