Fox Information’ Jesse Watters blasted Democratic presidential candidates for politicizing Wednesday’s taking pictures and standoff in Philadelphia that noticed not less than six law enforcement officials shot.
“Usually when there’s a terrorist attack in this country the Democrats like to say, ‘Hey, hey, hey, let’s not rush to judgment. Let’s let the facts come in before we start assigning blame or motivation or anything like that,'” Watters stated on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
6 PHILADELPHIA OFFICERS WOUNDED IN SHOOTING
“Literally as the shooting is unfolding … as there’s wounded officers … being taken for medical care. The Democrats running for president are politicizing it.”
The six officers who had been wounded had been finally launched from a hospital after remedy. Two officers and three hostages had been later freed, apparently unharmed.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., weighed in on gun violence in the course of the standoff, admonishing the NRA.
“We must take legislative action to stop gun violence. But we also need to understand the corruption that makes politicians protect the NRA over American lives — and how right-wing judges in our courts enable it,” Gillibrand tweeted. “We need to change that.”
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. retweeted a clip of Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney calling for gun management and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, challenged Republicans to go the Bipartisan Background Checks Act.

Watters says it was too quickly to weigh in and that gun management could not have stopped this incident.
“There’s no evidence that any sort of gun control would have stopped this violence from what we hear on police scanners,” Watters stated.
