George Floyd's Brother: Barely Had Opportunity to Speak During Trump Call

George Floyd's Brother: Barely Had Opportunity to Speak During Trump Call”

"They have seen their responsibility to be the president of the United States, to unify our country and not to fuel the flame", she said, during an interview on ABC's "This Week".

"I am not a prosecutor, but let me be clear: The arresting officer killed someone", Frey told CBS News, via CNN.

Gaga added: "I am as outraged by the death of George Floyd as I have been by the deaths of exponentially too many black lives over hundreds of years that have been taken from us in the country as a result of systemic racism and the corrupt system that support it. And no matter what they do to protest, they are still met with no compassion by the leaders that are meant to protect them". "He holds the most powerful office in the world, yet offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while black lives continue to be taken".

Many celebrities have used their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd. We also checked ProPublica's Politwoops ("Politwoops tracks deleted tweets by public officials, including people now in office and candidates for office.") to make sure this wasn't a deleted tweet and no results showed up there either (archived here). "It's time for change", she further said. He didn't give me an opportunity to even speak. She explained, "We MUST show our love for the Black community". I don't understand that. I am sad. I am angry.

Twitter HQ, which has been mum to Trump's rant of their practice of fact-checking him, actually posted a public notice interest note on one of his tweets - noting it had violence-laced content not suited for the faint of heart.

Trump, who vowed there's nothing he'd like to do than to delete his Twitter account, predictably went back to Twitter to complain about the recent riots that have taken over Minnesota on the wake of Floyd's case. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
