On Fox & Friends panelists discuss the devastation of ongoing, now Category I Storm “Ian”, as it passed on into South Carolina, with people there are waking up to assess the damage done. Hosts call upon Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C. to give an update on the damage to his state. Norman was quick to call out first the damage in Florida, saying-

“Our prayers go out to Florida, we didn’t get hit like they did, it hit Georgetown yesterday…mainly we had a lot of wind and a lot of water…four piers that were taken out alone the coast, but nothing like Florida did…we have over 25,000 farms with cotton, soybeans and corn, the damage will be there and time will tell the extent of it...we’re finally getting our power back on”…Governor McMaster did a great job…”

-Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C

When ask by panelist to comment on Vice President Kamala Harris’s recent statement that that hurricane supplies are being distributed by equity, Norman replied-

“as far as Kamala Harris – What a insult, to say it’s based on equity and the color of your skin, it goes along with everything else this administration has been doing. Where was she out visiting the devastation in Florida? Where was she? When is going to come out of her office and do something? Its Inflammatory words - so it doesn’t surprise me.”

-Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C

According to the New York Post, Vice President Harris has come under a torrent of criticism after telling an audience that “communities of color” would be first in line for relief in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Ian. She apparently stated, on Friday, during a discussion with Priyanka Chopra at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum that-

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

-Vice President Kamala Harris

Harris’ remarks immediately came under a backlash, including from Christina Pushaw, Rapid Response Director for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who said-

 “This is false. @VP’s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background,”

-Christina Pushaw, Rapid Response Director for Florida Gov. Ron

In another post, Sadanand Dhume, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, added that-

“real people don’t talk like this…adding “If a hurricane hits a state, we should expect the government to help all those affected: black, brown white, purple, green,”

Even Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, chimed in saying resource allocation-

“should be according to greatest need, not race or anything else.”

Apparently, Harris has adopted Pelosi’s new mantra-

“You know that little thing that is in your head, that keeps you from saying things you shouldn’t?… Yeah I   don’t have one of those.”
