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.”
