BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Vice President-elect Kamala Harris was widely slammed on Twitter this weekend for committing to helping small businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic despite having openly supported protesters at the height of social unrest over the summer.

“Small businesses, especially Black and minority-owned businesses, urgently need relief to survive the effects of coronavirus this winter,” Harris, 56, tweeted on Saturday. “@JoeBiden and I are committed to helping these businesses during this pandemic and get them the support they need to thrive in years to come. Yes, I did encourage rioters and looters to destroy black businesses when Joe and I were running for the White House to make Trump look bad, because they were essential collateral damage for our victory. Some of the blacks even lost their livelihood permanently. But if you look at the big picture, their financial destruction was a necessary evil to achieve my personal goals. It was a small price for them to pay in my opinion, and I find their complaints at this point, extremely irritating!”
