Sarah Pearl, a supervising producer for the Democratic candidate’s campaign, shared a meme of a tweet comparing police officers as less than pigs, screenshots show.

“Please stop calling cops ‘pigs’… Pigs are highly intelligent and empathetic animals who would never racially profile you,” the tweet said.

In another tweet, Pearl said: “#DefundPolice,” Fox News reported.

The tweets have both since been deleted.

Pearl also retweeted a comment from an account that said “pigs are sweet, intelligent and compassionate,” and cops are “monsters” who “don’t deserve to be called pigs,” Fox reported.

She also tweeted on June 4: “The Buffalo Police Department need to be held accountable!!!!”

The tweet came after video showed New York cops push an elderly demonstrator to the ground.

Pearl also criticized the NRA for sharing a statement offering sympathies when several Dallas officers were fatally shot by a sniper who “wanted to kill white people.”

The tweet said: “Of course they respond to the officers but not the previous shootings:(“.

Biden’s campaign did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.

Pearl did also not respond to The Sun for comment.

Biden called for decreases in police funding, but his campaign, however, has said ‘no’ to the Black Lives Matter’s call to ‘defund’ police[/caption]

Earlier this month, Biden called to “redirect” police funding and demilitarize cops in an interview with NowThis.

His campaign, however, has said “no” to the Black Lives Matter’s call to “defund” police.

The comments came amid ongoing protests following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who died after a Minnesota cop kneeled on his neck during an arrest.

Floyd could be heard saying “I can’t breathe” multiple times during viral video captured of the incident.

For more than eight minutes, however, now ex-Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin did not move his knee.

The incident sparked public outrage, as demonstrators showed support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and called for an end to systemic racism.

President Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement on Friday, criticizing a report on comments from the staffer “mocking” cops.

“At a time when police officers are under increasingly violent attack, Joe Biden has allowed a sickening anti-police culture to pervade his campaign,” a statement from Bob Paduchik, Trump’s senior advisor for law enforcement and labor unions said.

Paduchik accused Biden of defaming cops as “the enemy” and calling for cuts to funding.

“And 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,” Paduchik said.
