(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, came under fire on Saturday for promoting an $8 million fundraiser for the Gaza Strip, which is governed by the Hamas terror group.
However, the NY Post highlighted that the fundraiser conspicuously omitted any reference to the recent atrocities committed by Hamas, including the horrifying massacre on Oct. 7 where children were butchered, with one child reportedly burnt alive in an oven.
The fundraiser, managed by the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund based in Ohio, has raised over $21 million in 2021 alone, as reported by the NY Post.
NEW: 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.

Conservatives took to Twitter to express their criticism Emhoff’s involvement in the fundraiser. Collin Rugg, co-founder of Trending Politics, remarked, “Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff is helping raise money for a Gaza fundraiser that could end up in the hands of Hamas.

Joining the chorus of disapproval, Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., denounced Emhoff’s alleged support as “abhorrent.” The New Jersey Democrat warned that the funds could easily end up in the hands of Hamas. “It’s of tremendous concern and I find it abhorrent,” Van Drew said. “To be honest with you, I am kind of stunned by it. It’s disturbing to the maximum degree.”
Emhoff’s dad, First Gentleman Doug Emhoff is Jewish. Ella Emhoff, however, has declared that she is not Jewish in a previous interview.
“Ella is not Jewish,” a representative for Ella said to the Forward in 2021. “It’s not something she grew up with. Ella truly has no qualms with the faith, but she does not want to speak on behalf of Judaism, as she does not celebrate herself.”
