Murdock told “Fox News @ Night” that Mattis’ statement misses the mark on several fronts.
“He begins by saying very nice things about the protesters, that they want equal justice under the law, we all want that,” Murdock began. “Then he has this amazing sentence, ‘We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers.’
“What? Are you kidding me? We are not just talking about a couple of people [who] broke away from peaceful protests, put a little bit of shaving cream of the windshield of a police car, something like that,” he added. “We’re talking about massive looting, attacks on everything from Target to Macy’s to Rolex.”
