Former Senator Barbara Boxer, age 80, was assaulted and robbed in Oakland in broad daylight on Monday.
Her office tweeted the news, writing “Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”
The assault came as Oakland and numerous cities across the country struggle with rising crime rates believed to be tied to the “defund the police” movement.
In Episode 131 of the Trish Regan Show, Trish addresses the importance of the police and questions why billionaire investor, George Soros, is giving $1 million to a group supporting the “defund the police” movement.
