The Funniest Tweets About First Jewish Second Gentleman, Doug Emhoff

Kamala Harris made history, and her Jewish husband Doug Emhoff is icing on the cake.

Obviously, it was a big weekend. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were declared the winners of the United State’s 2020 presidential election. The election of Harris, in particular, was monumental: She will be the first female Vice President, the first Black woman to hold the office, and the first woman of South Asian descent to hold the office. To put it simply: Kamala Harris made history.

And a small footnote on her history is that her husband, Doug Emhoff, will be the first-ever “Second Gentleman” after a long line of 45 “Second Ladies.” Bonus? He becomes the first-ever Jewish second gentleman and the first-ever Jewish spouse of a President or Vice President. As we are a Jewish culture site, this is big news for us. And it was big news for Jews all across the country.
