On a list of the top 3 things you don’t want to happen at a press conference about crime, this has to be number one.

Democrat Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier held a joint press conference Wednesday to tout a task force they’re creating to combat robberies when an NBC 7 News crew’s car was broken into and had equipment stolen, ABC 7 reported.

Stephen Tschida, the reporter who was on the crew, said the thieves smashed a window, ransacked the car and stole the equipment.

To add insult to injury, according to Tschida the theft occurred within 100 feet of where the mayor and police chief were speaking which shows how seriously criminals take Democrats talking about cracking down on crime.

Social media found it about as hilarious as one would imagine.
