Political differences are set aside as condolences poured in from both sides following the tragic death of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., shared a photo of himself and his son with Bryant on Twitter, saying “So very sad. Kobe Bryant was the greatest—he went out of his way to spend time with my son and me after a game once. We will always remember his kindness. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., tweeted “I join the rest of Los Angeles in mourning the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and others. One of the greatest basketball players of all time, Kobe had a grace and athleticism unmatched in the NBA. My prayers are with his family and friends, and all Lakers fans.”

Former President Barack Obama said the NBA legend was “just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.”

Joe Biden also extended well wishes and tweeted: “It’s a reminder of how special — and fragile — life is. And it’s a reminder that we’ve got to make every day count.”

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway also reacted to the news and wrote: “Prayers and condolences to the Bryant family, and all those who lost loved ones today.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said she was “deeply shocked” – “Sending all my thoughts to their families and loved ones in this devastating moment.”
