Hurricane Ian

VEEP TROUBLE: Watch Kamala DODGE Question on Her Equity-Based Disaster Relief Comment

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.22

Vice President Kamala Harris is experiencing some blowback from a comment she made on Friday that suggested relief to communities affected by Hurricane Ian would be based on equity.

“Her comments came on Friday after Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm and in South Carolina as a Category 1 storm. At least 47 people died in Florida after the hurricane made landfall. Harris made the comments at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum,” Fox reports.

“It is our lowest-income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions,” Harris said. “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.”

Watch her comments above.

According to The Daily Wire, Harris is employing a “duck and dodge” strategy with reporters —the Veep doesn’t want to clarify her remarks at all.

“The Republican National Committee’s Research channel tweeted out a video of Harris being confronted Saturday evening about her remarks when she attended the Phoenix Awards Dinner at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.,” DW reports.

A man asked Harris, “Vice President, can you clarify what you meant about equity for hurricane relief?”

NOPE.

Harris looked right at the man as he asked the question and then looked away and kept walking.

Watch the clip below:

Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign, hit Twitter to clarify that the Veep’s remarks were absolutely false.

“@VP’s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified,” Pushaw tweeted. “FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background. If you need assistance visit disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362.”
