A former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, sparked outrage on Twitter on Monday after he labeled the United States Vice-President-Elect, Kamala Harris, a ‘Jezebel’.
Mr. Fani-Kayode, a supporter of incumbent President Donald Trump, made the remarks as he expressed disappointment over the outcome of the U.S. presidential poll.
Ms Kamala, 56, is America’s first female, first Black, and first South Asian vice president-elect. In her first post-election speech on Saturday, she said, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last”.
She was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat in 2016.
She is the first Indian American and African American woman to serve as a U.S. senator.
In November 2020, she was elected vice president of the United States on a ticket with Joe Biden.
‘‘I know Jezebel when I see her. Look into Kamalla’s eyes. Kaballa + Kundalini= Kamalla.Biden is a puppet and a smokescreen. A Biden presidency is a Kamalla Presidency. A Kamalla Presidency is satan’s Presidency. May God deliver,’’ his tweet read.
She has served as the junior United States senator from California since 2017.
I know Jezebel when I see her. Look into Kamalla's eyes.
Kaballa + Kundalini= Kamalla.
Biden is a puppet and a smokescreen.
A Biden presidency is a Kamalla Presidency.
A Kamalla Presidency is satan's Presidency.

In a recent article on his website, the ex-minister had declared his unflinching support for Mr Trump and also described the U.S. elections as ‘‘The biggest fraud in electoral history and in the history of democracy.”

You need special deliverance.
I recommend a combined session from MFm and Lord's chosen first. This should be followed by a bath by the river from Cele + Kerubu
Then end it with a holy slap from David Oyedepo

Although President Trump has not conceded, vowing to reclaim his mandate via the courts, his main rival in the election, Joe Biden of the Democratic Party, is the President-elect having polled more than the required 270 electoral votes to emerge President.
Mr Biden also outran Mr Trump in the popular votes cast and collated.
Since 2016, Mr Fani-Kayode has been a staunch supporter of Mr Trump and the Democratic Party. He celebrated the defeat of Hillary Clinton by Mr Trump in 2016.
