Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's supervising video producer Sara Pearl quietly deleted a recent meme where she compared police officers to pigs.
"Please stop calling cops "pigs"" the meme starts. "Pigs are highly intelligent & empathetic animals who would never racially profile you."

Check out what Fox News reported:
On June 1, Pearl tweeted simply, "#DefundPolice." Days later, she said Buffalo's police department should be "defunded immediately."
And, after several Dallas police officers were killed in 2016 by a sniper who "wanted to kill white people," Pearl dinged the National Rifle Association for tweeting its condolences in that case but not for prior shootings: "Of course they respond to the officers but not to the previous shootings :("
The Biden campaign did not reply to Fox News' request for comment, although the campaign confirmed it received the request for comment. Fox News also reached out to Pearl for comment. Pearl did not reply, but she deleted all of these tweets shortly afterward.
The Biden campaign's lack of response is quite alarming considering they seem hesitant to condemn someone who is extremely anti-police.
"Joe Biden can’t stand up to his supporters or staff who are calling to Defund the Police. Scary!" tweeted President Trump's former director of national intelligence Richard Grenell.
"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!'??!"
Fox News continues:
Pearl's comments came as the Trump campaign has portrayed Biden as weak on policing amid a nationwide movement to "defund" the police. A major law enforcement group this week endorsed President Trump's reelection.
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."
