Back in June, a Biden Campaign supervisor tweeted a meme that urged people to stop calling the police “pigs” because pigs are “highly intelligent and empathetic animals who would never racially profile you,” according to Fox News.
Sara Pearl, the supervising video producer tweeted simply, “#DefundPolice.”
Just days later, she said Buffalo’s police department should be “defunded immediately.”
The Trump campaign released a Friday statement saying “now Biden employs a staffer who uses the most vile, inflammatory, and incendiary language to target the brave men and women who risk their own lives to keep us safe.”
“How can Joe Biden look in the faces of grieving law enforcement families whose loved ones died in the line of duty?” said Bob Paduchik, a Trump campaign adviser. “Never in history has a major party campaign so angrily fanned the flames of hatred against our nation’s heroes.”

“Joe Biden can’t stand up to his supporters or staff who are calling to Defund the Police. Scary!” wrote Richard Grenell, Trump’s former director of national intelligence, after this article was first published.
“The Biden campaign didn’t respond to when given the chance,” Grenell added. “Why wouldn’t the Biden campaign immediately say ‘of course we don’t support this!’??!”

According to her Twitter account, Pearl started with the Biden campaign on July 1, after working with Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The anti-police tweets were posted in June, just days before she officially was hired.
Separately, Pearl has published several other pro-pig tweets. Last July, for example, she wrote that calling President Trump a pig was an “insult to pigs!!!!” that she will not “tolerate.” In December 2018, she tweeted, “All I want in life is a dog and a pig !!!!!!!!”
Pearl also posted photographs of a yoga course she taught with pigs, and boasted that she had purchased a book about “exploring the extraordinary potential of pigs.”
In response to criticism from the Trump campaign, Democratic National Committee communications director Xochitl Hinojosa asserted on “Bill Hemmer Reports” Thursday that Biden “does not support defunding the police.”
