Tuesday, during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called out his House colleague and fellow Californian Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, for not speaking out more about two sheriff’s deputies shot in an apparent ambush.
“My heart goes out to them — my prayers,” McCarthy said. “But when you watch that video — that 31-year-old deputy, a mother of a 6-year-old, a former librarian who just passed the academy a year ago, shot through the jaw, you can’t even quite hear as she calls in. Not only is she treating her other deputy, she’s looking out to see if the shooter is coming back, with blood across her face. But you know what is most telling to me is my U.S. Senator, Kamala Harris — the former attorney general of California — the top cop, as people would call her — has said nothing. Has not stood up against this.”
