Vice President Harris has enough problems without her husband making things worse. But unfortunately for her, that’s not how the cookie crumbles.
And Kamala Harris’ husband is panicking after exposing himself on social media.
Doug Emhoff, Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband, mangled the Hanukkah story in a social media post so terribly that he removed it, but not before social media pundits pounced.
Emhoff, a Jewish man, posted a photo of himself and Harris lighting a menorah on X, adding, “The story of Hanukkah and the story of the Jewish people has always been one of hope and resilience.”
Wait you're telling me Doug Emhoff doesn't know anything about Judaism I can't believe it I'm totally shocked I'm stunn- https://t.co/tJ5JXfZ192

He goes on to say, “In the Hanukkah story, the Jewish people were forced into hiding.”
However, that is not part of the story of Hanukkah.
Emhoff added, “No one thought they would survive or that the few drops of oil they had would last. But they survived and the oil kept burning.”

Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after it was desecrated by the Assyrians in the second century.
After defeating the more formidable Assyrian army, the Maccabees wished to rededicate and consecrate the Temple, but they only had enough oil for one day.
The fact that the oil lasted for eight days is still honored today.

Emhoff continued his inaccurate version writing, “During those eight days in hiding, they recited their prayers and continued their traditions. That’s why Hanukkah means dedication. It was during those dark nights that the Maccabees dedicated themselves to maintaining hope and faith in the oil, each other, and their Judaism,” noting that he thinks of the story during “dark times.”
Emhoff is now working with the administration to combat antisemitism in the United States.
Though apparently he can’t even get his own religion correct.
But is that any surprise coming from someone associated with this administration?
Just look at Joe Biden and his supposed “devout” Catholicism.
Meanwhile, he peddles social agendas that are anathema to his church.
Ideology is greater than religion to them.
