Kamala Harris just asked NASA if it could track trees by race for “environmental justice.”
This request was made in response to an article published by The Guardian that points out how much more pollution black communities are exposed to.
Harris asked: “Can you measure trees — part of that data that you are referring to, [and it’s an issue of] EJ, environmental justice — that you can also track by race their averages in terms of the number of trees in the neighborhoods where people live?”

The reaction on Twitter was unkind – and hilarious.
This woman is a complete hack – and if this is not an act, she is also a moron… https://t.co/en1n9uLCNX

I can’t get over the fact that “environmental justice” and “tree equity” are real phrases Democrats use.
Reads like parody. https://t.co/938cKaVEJM

I thought this was a Babylon Bee headline, turns out it's our totally serious Vice President.
Glad she has her priorities straight. https://t.co/XcC9Ad4tmD

Yes, the world’s most inauthentic, unnatural politician Kamala Harris made news yesterday by pressing NASA on its ability to sort trees by race as part of an “environmental justice” push. https://t.co/KRgbOJjS5f

Unbelievable that she’s anywhere near the White House.
