George Zimmerman smears Trayvon Martin’s parents: ‘They didn’t raise their son right’

Published

on

A defiant George Zimmerman said in an interview published on Tuesday that he still has people seeking to buy the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin. He also blamed the teen’s parents for their fatal 2012 encounter and accused them of exploiting it.

“They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” Zimmerman told The Daily Beast, adding, “Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death. She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.”

The couple, he said, needed to have “an internal dialogue to see what they should have done better and what they should have done appropriately.”

The interview was published on the heels of Zimmerman’s heavily-criticized attempt to auction the gun online. The sale was canceled less than a day after coming to light.

“One of the firmest offers I have with verified assets is $100,000,” Zimmerman claimed.

Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges in 2013, defended his stated goal to have proceeds from the sale of the gun go toward combating the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I would take that money and I would make sure that every law enforcement officer and every single civilian who is affected by the Black Lives Matter fraudulent, violent campaign — those officers, those civilians, their entire families — were made wealthy beyond their wildest imaginations,” he insisted.

Elie Mystal, a justice correspondent for The Nation magazine, explained how Crow pulled rank on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Mystal broked down how Crow put Roberts in his place with the subtle question of whether senators were getting restless and needed a break.

Ted Cruz smacked down by ex-FBI agent for suggesting Trump’s Ukraine scheme was about anti-corruption

Published

on

Despite the fact that it is now clear that President Donald Trump did not care if Ukraine investigated former Vice President Joe Biden's family, but just wanted them to announce that they were heading into election season, some Republicans are still attempting to claim that his scheme to illegally withhold military funds until they did so served a legitimate purpose in stamping out global corruption.

One such Republican is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who took to Twitter to argue this point:

A reminder of what this is all about: any president -- any administration -- is justified in investigating corruption.

Published

on

CBS News received harsh blowback on Wednesday after the network announced it had hired former Donald Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus.

CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter posted on Twitter a clip of the network announcing the hiring.

The network quickly received criticism for the decision, especially in light of reports that everyone who works for Trump is required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which permanently bars them from ever disparaging Trump.

Here's some of what people were saying:
