Watch Kamala’s Husband Call Trump Antisemitic While Daughter Fundraises for Hamas

Written by Michael Thompson.

Doug Emhoff, Vice President Kamala Harris’s husband, recently accused former President Donald Trump of antisemitism. This accusation came in a video shared by the Biden campaign on Twitter, captioned, “Second Gentleman @DouglasEmhoff responds to Trump attacking Jewish Americans.”

In the video, Emhoff said, “The last person I’m going to take advice from as a Jewish person is a known antisemite who’s had dinner with antisemites, who said there was ‘good people on both sides’ after Charlottesville.” Emhoff’s statement references Trump’s controversial comments following the Charlottesville rally in 2017.

Emhoff’s accusations have raised eyebrows, especially considering the actions of his own stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff. Her involvement in fundraising for groups linked to Hamas, a terrorist organization, presents a stark contrast to her father’s public statements.

Ella Emhoff’s Troubling Associations

Ella Emhoff has been scrutinized for her fundraising efforts for radical pro-Palestinian groups with ties to Hamas. She was involved in promoting the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which has been accused of connections to Hamas. A now-deleted Instagram post by Ella shared a link to UNRWA, raising questions about her affiliations.

The New York Post’s investigation into UNRWA’s links to Hamas prompted action from the Biden administration, which subsequently halted U.S. funding to the organization. This incident, however, was not an isolated one. In November 2023, Ella participated in an $8 million fundraiser for the Gaza Strip, an area controlled by Hamas.

Critics have noted that the fundraiser did not mention Hamas’s brutal attack on Israeli citizens on October 7, 2023. This omission has led to further scrutiny of Ella Emhoff’s activities and associations.

The Political Fallout

The contrasting actions of Doug Emhoff and his stepdaughter have led to significant political fallout. On one hand, Doug Emhoff condemns Trump for alleged antisemitism; on the other, his daughter engages in activities that indirectly support a terrorist organization.

Twitter personality Collin Rugg commented, “Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff is helping raise money for a Gaza fundraiser that could end up in the hands of Hamas. Not surprising considering her step-mom is one of the most incompetent people in Washington DC.” This statement encapsulates the frustration and confusion felt by many observers.

The broader implications of this situation reflect poorly on the Biden administration. It highlights a disconnect between public statements and private actions, undermining the credibility of the administration’s stance on terrorism and antisemitism.

Our Take

Doug Emhoff’s accusations against Donald Trump are not only hypocritical but also politically motivated. From a politically conservative perspective, this situation exemplifies the double standards often employed by the left. While Emhoff publicly condemns Trump, his own stepdaughter’s actions undermine his moral high ground.

Ella Emhoff’s involvement with organizations linked to Hamas is deeply troubling. It raises questions about the vetting and oversight within the administration. Supporting groups tied to terrorism, even indirectly, is unacceptable and should be condemned unequivocally.

The Biden administration’s response to these revelations has been inadequate. Halting funding to UNRWA after media exposure is reactive, not proactive. It shows a lack of genuine commitment to addressing the root issues of terrorism funding.

This situation also underscores the importance of consistency in political rhetoric and action. Accusing political opponents of antisemitism while ignoring or downplaying one’s own affiliations with extremist groups erodes public trust and damages the integrity of the political discourse.

In conclusion, the actions of Doug Emhoff and Ella Emhoff present a clear case of hypocrisy within the Biden administration. It is crucial for political leaders to uphold consistent and principled stances, especially on matters as serious as antisemitism and terrorism.
