Fox News host Harris Faulkner laid into Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff following reports that his motorcade had blocked access to handicapped parking spaces.
Faulkner discussed the situation with her cohosts on the network’s midday panel show, “Outnumbered,” and suggested that it was proof that “liberal privilege” was a real thing — and it extended to Emhoff, the husband of Vice President Kamala Harris.
“It looks like you can add the vice president’s husband to the liberal privilege list,” cohost Emily Compagno said as she introduced the video clip. “New video showing his motorcade hogging several handicap parking spots while he leisurely shopped at Whole Foods in Brentwood, California. When the second gentleman left the supermarket, he even stopped to say hello to his fans.”
The video showed the two black Chevy Suburbans — which comprise Emhoff’s motorcade — parked diagonally across the handicapped spaces in front of a Whole Foods in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. The two vehicles remained parked there, blocking access to the handicapped spots for some 20 minutes while Emhoff shopped and picked up dry-cleaning.
He told a bystander that he was “doing good” as he returned to one of the vehicles and climber in — at which point the drivers briefly hit the lights and sirens prior to leaving the parking lot.
Emhoff and his motorcade were on the wrong side of California’s vehicle code, however, which states that “it is unlawful for any person to park or leave standing any vehicle in a stall or space designated for disabled persons and disabled veterans … unless the vehicle displays either a special identification license plate … or a distinguishing placard.”
“I think this is one of those just grab the privilege and ride it home, cowboy,” Faulkner remarked during Monday’s broadcast. “Like, I just don’t think they think deep enough to something that his wife might have said earlier about, you know, giving an advantage to those who might need it at a time, that sort of thing.”
Faulkner went on to say that she didn’t believe Emhoff or his staffers had parked there with any malicious intent — but that they had likely just failed to recognize just how bad the optics might be. “I really don’t think it was mean-spirited, but it is one other thing that’s politically dangerous. It’s oblivious.”
I crack up every time somebody says, Camela Harris, vice president of the United States. It makes me think America ran out of white women to be VP.
His wife, the Indo-Jamaican, is not even eligible to be VP.
Typical low class entitled Dems. They only do the right thing if somebody is watching.
I love Harris Faulkner. She should replace Hannity or Laura Inghram, immediately.
Far be it for me to come to the aide of these idiots however I assume for security reasons the whole area was off limits to the public while Mr giggles was there so it wasn’t like the spots weren’t available for a handicapped person.
Having said that, it does smack of entitlement and insensitivity.
Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution (adopted July 9, 1868), which states:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside”.
Do you think a person born here in the US are not under US jurisdiction.
She pulls no punches..........................
To the Left, THEY ARE ROYALTY.........................
Me too. Faulkner surprised me her conservative instincts. Probably developed by how she was raised.
John Jay to George Washington:
“Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.”
Anyone born with more than ONE nationality is NOT NATURALLY an American, because they were also born something else.
The entire purpose of the clause was to exclude foreigners.
The children of foreigners are themselves foreigners, even if born here.
And the Halls of Congress is their sacred church, which is why they were so upset that the people walked through there on 1//6..
Harris is thoughtful and smart.
It makes me think America ran out of coherent intelligent women to be VP (fixed it)!
The Capitol police waived them in.
That one sentence would seem to invalidate every 'residency requirement' in every state that has them......................
Temple, and ‘abortion’ is their sacrament..................
Didn’t even recognize the name of this Douglas Emhoff.
