White House changes way it refers to Harris’ husband, second gentleman ‘Douglas’ Emhoff

Vice President Kamala Harris made American history in January when she became the first woman ever to be inaugurated as vice president.

That led to a second first: Harris’ husband became the only man in U.S. history to ever obtain the role of the second gentleman. But as Fox News recently reported, his image is now apparently being rebranded by the White House.

According to the outlet, Douglas Emhoff will no longer be referred to by the White House as “Doug.” However, Fox noted that Emhoff’s Twitter account and law firm still use the shortened, casual version of his name, which many believe more closely matches his personality and style.

Still, Emhoff doesn’t seem to believe that his new moniker is remarkable. “Safe to say like most people, his full and abbreviated names have always been used interchangeably,” a representative for the second gentleman said.

Another Harris controversy

Of course, Emhoff’s name change isn’t the only reason that his wife is dominating headlines once again. The Washington Examiner reports that copies of Harris’ book recently turned up at a California shelter for underage illegal migrants.

Titled Superheroes are Everywhere, then-Sen. Harris (D-CA) released the book in 2019. Its cover features a cartoon drawing of Harris and several children in front of the United States Capitol.

So far, Harris’ book seems to have had more time at border facilities than its author has. That’s despite President Joe Biden’s announcement last month that Harris would be taking a key role in overseeing the migrant crisis, to explore the “root causes” of why such a massive migrant influx is happening.

“I’ve asked her, the VP, today, because she’s the most qualified person to do it, to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle and the countries that help — are going to need help in stemming the movement of so many folks, stemming the migration to our southern border,” Biden said during an event in late March, according to Fox.

He went on: “And, you know, back when I was vice president, I got a similar assignment, but one of the things we did was we made sure that we got a bipartisan agreement with Democrats and Republicans to provide over $700 million to the countries in the Northern Triangle to determine the best way to keep people from coming is keep them from wanting to leave.”

Where is she, though?

Harris has been reluctant to personally visit the border herself, even at one point generating headlines for laughing when a reporter asked if she had any plans to make the visit and show some leadership on the issue. She’s also facing increased backlash from various high-profile Republicans for her seeming absence on the border crisis issue.

Harris revealed during a White House round table discussion in mid-April that she will be traveling with U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to at least one country that makes up the “Northern Triangle.”

She also said that she has “plans in the work[s] to go to Guatemala as soon as possible, given all of the restrictions in terms of COVID and things of that nature.”

  2. Who cares what he is called there sure are a LOT MORE IMOPORTNT things that needs to be taken care of . one being the border. I feel sorry for him if he has to listen to her hyena laughing all the time. I guess some one had to buy her book and give them away

  3. I have been saying for a while now, we need someone with deep pockets and entrepreneurial knowledge to go to these below our border countries and give them an industry so they can prosper where they are instead of coming here on welfare and low wage positions, or worse take jobs that keep America prosperous away from those who were born here in the first place.

  4. IF Harris was really concerned she would have already been to the border. COVID is not an excuse, she is going other places just fine. I pity America when she becomes president (I don’t personally think Biden will last 4 years) and thank all those that voted them in and are helping ruin America.

  5. What fans when she went to her home town only 2 people showed up. America hates this witch equally as much has we hate pelosi

  6. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
