WH Damage Control – Jean-Pierre Walks Back VP Harris’ Hurricane Ian ‘Equity’ Remark

Prior to landfall, the Biden administration approved Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ emergency declaration authorizing FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security to provide assistance to the Sunshine state.

Following the hurricane, Floridians and tens of thousands of out-of-state workers and volunteers started the difficult process of helping those who were injured, recovering those who had died, and then beginning the rebuilding from the ground up in many southern areas of the state.

Instead of treating all of those in need the same, virtue signaling Vice President Kamala Harris announced that she wanted the disaster relief to be based on “equity”, aka, race.

The term “equity”, used by radical social justice activists, refers to fairness and justice and is distinguished from equality: Whereas equality means providing the same to all, equity means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances.

Yes, instead of showing true leadership and reassuring all victims of Hurricane Ian that they will receive the help and resources needed to rebuild their lives, the VP called for discrimination against white residents by telling them last, even if they are in more need than people of color.

Once again White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked to tell America what Biden or Harris “really,” meant.

Jean-Pierre walked back Harris’ remark after a reporter questioned her on the Republican backlash.

“That is not what the vice president said,” Jean-Pierre said. “The vice president was clearly talking about long-term investment, not FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Aid] for hurricane response efforts,” Pierre said.

“The vice president and the president have been clear that the federal government has been and will continue to be there for all Americans recovering from these devastating storms as we’re seeing the president and first lady do today and will see them do clearly in Florida on Wednesday,” she added.


“We are committed to quickly getting resources to all communities impacted, period,” she continued. “Full stop. But we also note that some people, particularly of lower income, have a hard time accessing that help. That’s why this administration has also made it a priority to remove barriers and ensure that everyone, regardless of their zip code, and that’s what she was talking about.”

Footage released Sunday showed Harris remained silent when asked for a clarification.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ rapid response director, Christina Pushaw, said Harris’ remarks were incorrect given that “all Floridians,” regardless of race or background, have access to FEMA Individual Assistance.

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