Kamala Harris’ Niece Calls for Defunding Police, White House Throws Officer Under the Bus

Tensions are high surrounding the police shooting of 13-year old Adam Toledo.

While it’s unquestionable that the incidence is a tragic one to be sure, what people can’t seem to agree on is whether or not Toledo was armed when he was shot and killed. Those who claim he is not have had to turn to deceptive tactics, however. As Matt reported, CBS News omitted the frame which shows Toledo armed.

But the network isn’t the only one letting its bias show. While Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, has been vocal about the issue, including with calls to defund the police, the White House isn’t so supportive of them either during a Friday press briefing, not in the Adam Toledo shooting. 

This is hardly the first time that Meena has had controversial tweets on shootings. While she did delete an explosively racist tweet where she rushed to claim Ahmad Al Issa–the suspect in the Boulder, Colorado shooting–was white, rather than wait for the facts, shestill justified her initial comments.
