Biden White House official, newly promoted, apologizes for tweets comparing police to ‘slave patrols and lynch mobs’

by

A newly promoted White House official who caught attention for previous anti-police and anti-ICE comments came around with an apology on Sunday.

A former Interior Department communications director named Tyler Cherry stepped into a new role on the White House communications team but his old tweets followed him, prompting outrage that – once again – the Biden administration hires and promotes those with radical, leftist views.

Cherry’s old social media posts resurfaced after news of his new position, exposing his support of anti-Israel organizations, his call for the abolishment of ICE and comparisons of police officers to slave patrols.

“Praying for #Baltimore, but praying even harder for an end to a capitalistic police state motivated by explicit and implicit racial biases,” he had posted in 2015 during the time when Freddie Gray had died while in police custody.

“Time to recall that the modern day police system is a direct evolution of slave patrols and lynch mobs,” he had also reportedly tweeted.

But on Sunday, after reports circulated about his tweets, Cherry came forward with an attempt to clear his own record.

“Past social media posts from when I was younger do not reflect my current views. Period. I support this Administration’s agenda – and will continue my communications work focused on our climate and environmental policies,” wrote the White House official who spent more than three years at Interior working for Secretary Deb Haaland.

“We’re very proud to have Tyler on the team,” White House senior deputy press secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News Digital, predictably defending Biden’s newest hire.

Social media users were unconvinced and reminded Cherry how radical some of his views once – and maybe still – are in one after another blistering reality check on X.
