Watch: Jay Carney Acts As If The President Didn’t Already Interfere In George Zimmerman’s Trial


Asked about President Barack Obama’s infamous “if I had a son” remark during a press conference Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said—as if the damage isn’t already done—said that it isn’t White House policy to comment on matters like the George Zimmerman case in the midst of a trial.

“[Obama’s] comments are what they were, but we’re not going to say anything from here,” press secretary Jay Carney said.

Asked by reporters if the Justice Department will be watching the outcome and reporting back to the President, Carney said, “I do not know the answer to that question.”


“If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” Obama said in March. “I think [Martin’s parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and were going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

    Fer gawd’s sake, puleez do NOT question carney or obama on this matter. That is racist if ever I have heard. No, let justice take its course and if Zimmerman is acquited, let the Negroes burn their part of that Florida town to the waterline. Of course FEMA and the obama will rush funds down to right that terrible wrong.

    • ldazzle

      I also agree, let it burn, that’s the only way they know how to react!

  • ldazzle

    I still can’t believe, they (MSM) don’t leave the Martin (THUG) pix up. This whole trial is a travesty of justice.

  • Harriet Nelson

    This entire administration is an embarrasment to this country. I hope all the Obama supporters are hanging their heads in shame. But I know better because they themselves have no moral compass

    • shimdo

      Yea, embarrassment ,I don’t think describes it. Maybe other country’s. Of course,everyone is laughing.. His arrogance could be rated an a. If things don’t go he’sway.he’s tantrums is seen by all

  • vietnamvet1971

    O’Dumobo Ignited the Fuse to have Zimmerman railroaded to Prison or RIOTS, those are the only 2 Choices. Prison or Riots.

  • ChuckS123

    I’m concerned about how his daughters will turn out. Hopefully not thugs like Tayvon – or Barack.

  • richcarro

    Boy!! This Jay Carney don’t seem to know anything. What a joke he got going for himself, the Main Stream Media just sits and takes all this bull coming out his mouth. What will they do when Obama starts to take away their rights?

    • Deerinwater

      Oh! That hasn’t already happened?

    • shimdo

      richcarro, screaming WHAT IS HAPPENING

  • Greg Pugsley

    There is no way any ‘son’ of obama would be anything but like trayvon…statement means nothing.

  • BillQuantrill

    Just like he didn’t interfere when his azzhole friend Professor Gates from Harvard got his smart disrespectful azz arrested, Beer Gate!! Remember without any facts the great Obama said “the police acted stupidly” but defended the Fort Hood murdering Muslim terrorist shooter saying ‘Not to rush to Judgment”.

    • Deerinwater

      I don’t know ~ a man is arrested and charge for breaking into his own home ~ and you don’t see a problem with that?

      • ChuckS123

        He was arrested for a bad attitude – not showing ID to prove that he lived there.

      • BillQuantrill

        He wasn’t arrested for breaking into his own home. He was arrested for failing to ID himself and for obstructing an officer. All he had to do was cooperate as he should have and Im sure the police officer would have assisted him. So no, I don’t have a problem with that. And again, Obama weighed in without the facts.

      • Combat Veteran Seabee

        Deer in the water, Please go under for the last time, okay? You are an uninformed moron who kisses the butt of a reprehensible liar, and B.S. artist, not to mention Piece of sheet!!!

    • shimdo

      Yes, he does have a big problem speaking out both sides of he’s mouth. If he’s not lying over something, he’s trying to make excuses for something he messed up in speaking

  • Deerinwater

    And what “seriousness” does it deserve?

    The statement was harmless enough to me. ~ The system is required to administer rule of law and jury of peers are to past judgement based on the merit of the evidence. ~ off hand Comments by anyone bear on weight on the outcome. ~ Not even the bigoted comments made by Zimmerman father to the media. ~ so get real Sam.

  • keepersleeper

    For Obama to have injected himself into the explosive, racially driven, mob-based gatherings to “lynch” Zimmerman, was reprehensible! Egyptians had the NERVE to ouster a terrorist from the presidency…why can’t we? We do an awful lot of talking, but so little comes from it! It would be a wonderful sight to see MILLIONS of us gathering, chanting and INSISTING Obama be removed from office! Wishful thinking??

  • securityman

    deerinwater, do you truly believe that the statement was harmless. that idiot obummer should not have even opened his mouth. do you really think that the statement will have no effect on the jury? One final question deerinwater, HOW MUCH OF AN OBUMMER IDIOT ARE YOU???????????

    • shimdo

      Yea, kinof wondering that myself

    • Combat Veteran Seabee

      Remember his, oblowhole’s, remark about the cop acting stupidly in the Harvard incident? Another black supposedly being abused by a white cop!
      See the pattern here?

  • tom cook

    Actually Trayvon looked a lot like obama–just another stupid black.

  • BHR

    This case has shown how Americas president has turned against half the people in America. He sent the DOJ to Florida to whip up protest in favor of Martin. What ever happened to justice? Facts don’t matter for Obama, he found Zimmerman guilty before the trail. This is one of so many reasons why he should be impeached. I used to think, maybe as a liberal, Hilary may not be to bad but she has been contaminated by Obama. Obama has diseased the democrat party.
