Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter has raised a staggering $8 million for Hamas-controlled Gaza.
24-year-old Ella Emhoff is the daughter of “First Gentleman” Doug Emhoff, who is Jewish.
Ella Emhoff has been running a fundraising drive that she has been promoting on her personal Instagram account.
The fundraiser claims to be “supporting urgent relief for Gaza’s children” but the money will likely end up in the hands of Hamas terrorists.
However, it makes no mention of the scores of Israeli children murdered among the 1,400 innocent people killed in Israel by Hamas terrorists on October 7.
Her promotion puts the funding appeal in front of her 315,000 Instagram followers.
The fundraiser has netted roughly $8 million so far.
It is being operated by the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund, a nonprofit based in Kent, Ohio, according to ProPublica.
The organization raked in more than $21 million in 2021.
It’s unclear how much, if anything, Ella Emhoff has personally donated to the cause.
Ella Emhoff’s fundraising efforts have provoked a backlash.
“It’s of tremendous concern and I find it abhorrent,” said Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ).
“To be honest with you, I am kind of stunned by it.
“It’s disturbing to the maximum degree.”
Van Drew, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said it was almost certain that Hamas would be able to siphon any humanitarian cash that entered Gaza.
Ella Emhoff has pointedly insisted to reporters that she does not consider herself Jewish.
“Ella is not Jewish,” a rep for the second daughter insisted 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.”
Emhoff’s biological mom is film producer Kerstin Emhoff.
Following increased media attention after Harris entered the VP’s office, Ella Emhoff has styled herself as a model.
She recently made semi-nude appearances at New York Fashion Week.
She is close with her stepmother, who congratulated her in an X posting after Emhoff’s graduation from Parsons in 2021.
“Keep dreaming with ambition and there is nothing you cannot achieve,” Harris wrote.
Congratulations to our daughter Ella on her graduation. I am so proud of you. Keep dreaming with ambition and there is nothing you cannot achieve.
Love, Momala. pic.twitter.com/lCbDI2T8zr

Last month Democrat President Joe Biden announced that he would send $100 million in “humanitarian assistance” to Gaza.
The announcements prompted swift backlash from Republicans seeking to challenge him in the 2024 presidential contest.
President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum have all denounced the idea.
