    No problem. It's clear you didn't want the discussion your thread title suggested and only wanted a "crap on Kamala" thread instead of a discussion of allyship with North Korea.

    You're too much of a kraven to address the fact that the president before very much portrayed things the exact same way and wrote gross romance letters to the leader of North Korea, something even Kamala the twit couldn't even match for embarassment.

      2. Same instruction to you as Gond. If you want to talk about Trump, leave my thread, do not pass go, do not post again. If you wish to reply to this post, start a new thread on KJU and Trump.

        Personally I find Harris' remarks about hurricane relief being distributed based on "equity" -- meaning minorities will be moved to the front of the line -- more troubling than her idiocy regarding flubbing her Koreas

          Source: FEMA head said Ian aid will go to ‘all communities,’ rejecting Harris’ calls for ‘equity’


          The chief of the Federal Emergency Management Agency insisted Sunday that Hurricane Ian aid will be provided to “all communities” — dismissing Vice President Kamala Harris‘ earlier claim that the assistance should be “based on equity.”

          ​”​We’re going to support all communities. I committed that to the governor, I commit to you right here that all Floridians are going to be able to get the help that is available to them through our programs​,” Deanne Criswell said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. ​

          Criswell was responding to a question from host Margaret Brennan about Harris’ Friday comments and the backlash that they prompted, including from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ reelection campaign, which said the remarks ​could cause “undue panic.”

          Earlier in the show, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) said the FEMA aid should be colorblind.

          Criswell responded that she had been on the ground assessing damage from Hurricane Ian in Florida on Friday and Saturday and “there are a lot of people that are going to need assistance as a result of this.”

          She also insisted that the federal government will remove any barriers that hinder people’s ability to access aid.

          “T​hese people that need our help the most are going to be able to access the help that we offer. I know that the ​v​ice ​p​resident and the ​p​resident, they share the same values​,” Criswell said, adding “we are going to be there to support everybody that needs help.”​​

          The vice president raised eyebrows last week when she ​said that “communities of color” should be first in line for hurricane relief.

          “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,” ​Harris ​told actress Priyanka Chopra ​in an interview ​at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday.

          “If we want people to be in an equal place sometimes we need to take into account those disparities and do that work,” she ​said.

          The exchange between Scott and Brennan was entertaining as the later insisted that Harris didn't mean what she said.

          SEN. RICK SCOTT: Well, I think what we've got to do is bring everybody together. I would also say that what Vice President Harris said yesterday—or the day before yesterday, you know, if you have a different skin color you’re going to get relief faster...

          MARGARET BRENNAN: That's not what the Vice President said.

          SEN. RICK SCOTT: I think what we've got...

          MARGARET BRENNAN: That's not what the Vice President said. She talked about equity...

          SEN. RICK SCOTT: That's exactly what she meant.

          MARGARET BRENNAN: I'm talking about Marjorie Taylor Greene and President Trump.

          SEN. RICK SCOTT: Margaret, Margaret, let’s make sure -- FEMA has to be color blind. FEMA has to provide support to everybody.

            I am sure Harris will say that she didn't mean to be racist. Or the WH will tell us what she really meant.

            I am curious why Harris didn't correct her gaff about NK though. That's troubling.

              Likely didn't realize she had flubbed.

              Wasn't there something early on in the vaxx programs a proposal about them being issued to minorities first, including before some at risk groups?

                It may not have been a gaffe.

                  She probably can't find the peninsula on a map, so it wouldn't surprise me she didn't know where she was or what she was talking about.

                        I can see why you wanted to avoid the distraction. The whataboutism thread is on page 1, this has sunk to page 3. This has 25 posts, the other already has 40. Seems liberal posters would rather hate on trump than discuss their own party's mistakes.
