Kamala Inflicts Pain Upon Hurricane Ian Survivors

Vice President Kamala Harris moved to add insult to injury and inflict pain upon the survivors of the devastation of Hurricane Ian.

She did this by declaring the administration would be distributing relief aid “based on equity,” with a focus on “communities of color.”

Kamala’s Latest Gaffe

Ian, a Category 4 and one of the strongest hurricanes to have ever hit the United States, caused widespread damage all over Florida and killed at least 21 people. It also left 2.67 million homes and companies without electricity.

Harris was speaking on Friday at the Women Leadership Forum of the Democratic National Committee when she thought it would be wise to declare not all those affected by the hurricane would receive relief.

Harris stated “this” has to be “addressed” by distributing “resources based on equity.” She added even though “we fight for equality,” there is also a “need to fight for equity.”

The Democratic veep claimed further that since not all started “at the same place,” such “disparities” need to be taken into account if we would like to “be in an equal place.”

While Kamala Harris’s favorite public gaffes seem to be meaningless, unfathomable word salads, she is also known for making controversial statements that are hard to recover from.

‘Racially Charged’ Comments

Kamala’s declaration quickly sparked an outraged reaction by the administration of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Christina Pushaw, DeSantis’ former press secretary and current rapid response director, called out Harris a few hours after her controversial comments, The Daily Mail reported, referring to the veep’s words as “racially charged.”

“This is false,” Pushaw wrote on Twitter, regarding Kamala’s claims that aid would be distributed “based on equity.”

DeSantis’ rapid response chief emphasized that FEMA has already been made available to all residents of Florida affected by Hurricane Ian, “regardless of ethnicity or background.”

Pushaw blasted the vice president for “causing undeserved panic” among the hurricane victims by suggesting aid would not be available to all.

In a follow-up tweet, she urged Harris to correct her own words and lambasted Chopra for failing to ask the veep to clarify whatever she meant by her comments and why she was “misrepresenting” the relief effort.

In a subsequent Twitter response, Pushaw announced that Casey DeSantis, the first lady of Florida, had given $1 million out of Florida’s Disaster Fund to organizations providing relief aid to hurricane victims.

The world’s richest man, Elon Musk, also criticized Kamala Harris when he responded to a tweet, mentioning her quote about aid distribution based on “equity.”

Musk wrote relief aid ought to be given out based on “greatest need” and “not race or anything else.”

He was replying to a tweet by Ryan Fournier, founder of “Students for Trump,” who had written that apparently, according to Kamala, “everyone else is just screwed.”
