President Obama, who last year said if he had a son, he’d “look like Trayvon” Martin, has broken his subsequent silence on the case in a big way. Obama not only said that Trayvon Martin “could have been me 35 years ago,” but that things would have turned out very differently had Martin been white.
Joy Reid tweeted much of Obama’s statement:
Really? “Beer summit,” anyone?
Obama’s full statement:
Did all that come from the same president who Jay Carney expects everybody to believe is not involving himself in the DOJ’s decisions regarding the Zimmerman investigation? We remain skeptical.
