(PoliticalLookout.com)- Democratic Senator Kamala Harris was the center of a Twitter storm last week when Twitter users called out her hypocritical claims of supporting small businesses.
Harris, who is described by the mainstream press as the “Vice President-elect,” tweeted on November 28 that she believes small businesses need urgent relief.
“Small businesses, especially Black and minority-owned businesses, urgently need relief to survive the effects of coronavirus this winter,” she wrote on Twitter.
Small businesses, especially Black and minority-owned businesses, urgently need relief to survive the effects of coronavirus this winter. @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.

“@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,” she added.
The problem? Kamala Harris wasn’t so supportive of small businesses during the summer when they were being looted and burned down by far-left rioters.
Twitter users reminded Harris about a tweet she made in June, in which she expressed her support for protesters who were out and “on the ground in Minnesota.” Those protesters burned down black-owned businesses while calling for “racial justice.” More than 170 businesses were damaged in St. Paul alone, with many businesses impacted so badly that it is unlikely they will ever return.
You can see the kind of damage that was done in the video below.
Fox News reports the massive backlash against Harris, with users reminding her of her support for the “Minnesota Freedom Fund” that paid for bail for huge numbers of people who protested in Minnesota.
One Twitter user asked, “Remember when you were fundraising to bail out criminal who destroyed small businesses during the riots?”

“If you cared so much about small and minority owned businesses, you would have denounced the riots and called for law and order rather than let them burn,” another said.
How can Kamala Harris say she supports small business when she also supported rioters who hurt them so badly in the Summer? And when she is a representative of a political party that held up negotiations on a fresh round of COVID relief, based on their refusal to back down on the inclusion of non-COVID-related measures that they knew Republicans couldn’t support?
