AN INADEQUATE VICE PRESIDENT, ONE HEARTBEAT AWAY:  Kamala Harris is a public embarrassment.  From Fox: 

Vice President Kamala Harris dodged a question asking her if she could explain what she meant when stating that the Biden administration would take "equity" into account when disbursing natural disaster relief.

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.

"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."

In a video obtained by Fox News Digital, when asked if she could clarify the comments, she didn't answer the question.

"Vice President, can you clarify what you meant about equity for hurricane relief," Harris was asked.

Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' campaign, said on Twitter that the comment by Harris is false.

"This is false. [Harris’] rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified," said Pushaw. "FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background."

On Friday, the White House said that it's working with DeSantis and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide aid to individuals who were impacted by Hurricane Ian.

COMMENT:  This incident occurred the same week in which the vice president, in Asia, announced that the United States has an important alliance with "North Korea."  Of course, it's South Korea, but let's not be too touchy.  But let's also not have someone like Kamala Harris in that office again.
