Second Gentleman Emhoff to lead Holocaust remembrance efforts in Europe

Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, the husband of VP Kamala Harris will travel to Europe this month to participate in Holocaust remembrance events. Emhoff has emerged as the Biden admin’s point man on Jew hatred.

Emhoff is slated to visit the Memorial and Museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He will also participate in a wreath-laying ceremony and attend the annual commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

He will then head to Berlin to attend a meeting of special envoys and coordinators working to combat antisemitism.

As the first Jewish spouse of a U.S. president or vice president, Emhoff has become increasingly vocal about his Jewish background and about the rising antisemitism in the country. 

Last month, he led a roundtable with Jewish leaders at the White House. Addressing the topic of rising Jew-hatred, he said, “I understand the weight of this responsibility—I do.…And as second gentleman, let me reiterate, I will not remain silent. I’m proud to be Jewish, and I’m proud to live openly as a Jew. I am not afraid. We cannot live in fear. We refuse to be afraid.”

I don't trust him anymore than Biden or Harris. He married that airhead which says a lot to me.
