George Zimmerman praises Trump and Fox News on 5-year anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death

Published

on

On the fifth anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death, the man who took his life joined WeSearchr for an interview in which he discussed which news organizations “truthfully” covered the shooting.

George Zimmerman, who killed 17-year-old Martin and was ultimately found not guilty on second-degree murder charges, told WeSearchr host Peter Duke, “Fox News was the only one that reported carefully.” Zimmerman added, “I would say Sean Hannity himself was the only person that reported the truth at the time, which was that everyone knew nothing until the trial. And I thank him for that.”

Duke later asked Zimmerman how his political outlook has changed in the last five years. “Well, I trust that Mr. Trump will do the right thing,” he said, adding that his political convictions haven’t changed over time and that Trump is “the right man for the job to make sure that America is great again.”

Zimmerman was also asked how he would solve the so-called “black crime epidemic” if he were president.

This conversation took place on the fifth anniversary of Martin’s shooting death, on Sunday, Feb. 26.

The star of HBO's Westworld three James Bond films mocked the Richmond gun rally in a tweet, which linked to a Washington Post article on the armed demonstration, and noted the event was scheduled on Martin Luther King Day.

“The organizers aren’t at all bothered that a gun circle jerk in Richmond, VA on #MLKDay has a Klan-rally smell to it?" Wright tweeted. "Wonder why."

‘Dead wrong’: House Dems release scathing rebuttal to White House’s widely panned legal brief

Published

on

The Trump White House's latest defense of the president ahead of his impending impeachment trial has been widely panned, and has even sparked speculation that Trump himself had a hand in writing it due to its low-grade legal analysis.

A legal brief filed by President Donald Trump's lawyers late last week called impeachment proceedings "constitutionally invalid," even though impeachment is literally a part of the Constitution, and also accused Democrats of engaging in a "brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election," even though Vice President Mike Pence would take over in the event that Trump was removed by the Senate.
