California Family Accuses Newsom and Harris of Trespassing: “These Two Politicians Used My Parents’ Loss for a Photo Opportunity to Push Their Political Agenda”

A California family accused Sen. Kamala Harris and Gov. Gavin Newsom of trespassing on their fire-ravaged property for a photo opportunity.

The lawmakers went to Fresno County on Tuesday “to survey the damage of the flames engulfing much of the West Coast, and received a briefing from Cal Fire and U.S. Forest Service officials,” Fox News reported. They reportedly stopped by Pine Ridge Elementary in Auberry, Calif. After that,  they walked across the street “to observe a residence burnt to the ground.”

“The fire just swept through. So everything is gone except the chimney. Those chimneys, they remind me – when you look at a neighborhood that’s been wiped out, those chimneys remind me of tombstones,” said Harris.

Trespassing for a Photo-Op

Trampas Patten, the son of the homeowners whose property was in Harris’s photo, posted on Facebook, saying: “What has me really frustrated right now is the fact that these two politicians used my parents [sic] loss for a photo opportunity to push their political agenda! Political party wouldn’t have made a difference in this moment. Decent human beings that have character and class, wouldn’t air someone else’s misfortune on national television!”

Patten then emphasized that his parents haven’t been let back in. They were not allowed in order “to sort through what is left of their lives, but these two felt the need to go traipsing around my parents [sic] property without permission.”

Fox News explained that the home is still in an area under an evacuation order. So, owners have not been allowed to check on their property yet.

Newsom and Harris also mentioned climate change as they spoke about the wildfires during their visit.

“Climate change is real. If you don’t believe in science, come to California and observe it with your own eyes. You cannot be in denial about this reality,” Newsom then added.
