Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, appearing at a Los Angeles re-election fundraiser tonight, each addressed the Israel-Gaza war protests that have highlighted a split on the left.

About two dozen pro-Palestinian demonstrators were outside the event, held at the home of entertainment attorney Cliff Gilbert-Lurie and Leslie Lurie, and some of the protesters chanted “Free Palestine” and held a banner that read “No pride in genocide,” according to a pool report.

Demonstrators also threw fake blood in front of the home, and placed their red handprints on the ground, as they have at other protests.

Inside, with about 140 people in attendance, Leslie Gilbert-Lurie introduced Emhoff and told the crowd, “At this heart breaking moment when antisemitism is rapidly gaining traction along with Islamophobia, racism and xenophobia, it is so reassuring to know that the Second Gentleman understands what many of us are experiencing.” Per the pool report, Emhoff, who is the first Jewish spouse of a president or vice president, talked about the conversations he has been having amid rising antisemitism and hate speech. “You saw it outside walking in here today,” he said, a reference to the protesters. “This is the times that we’re living in right now.” As she was readying to speak, Harris was interrupted by someone at the event who called for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war, according to the pool.
