Trump said he was going to talk to Blake family, but not their lawyers

Source: NBC News

President Donald Trump told reporters on Monday that he has not spoken to the family of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man who was shot by a white police officer which later sparked protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and across the country.

"I spoke with the pastor, wonderful man, the family's pastor, and I thought it would be better not to do anything where there are lawyers involved. They wanted me to speak but they wanted to have lawyers involved and I thought that was inappropriate so I didn't do that," Trump said at Monday's White House briefing.

He added, "I may, at some point...but I just gave my best regards. But again, I spoke with the pastor."

However, Jacob Blake Sr. and Blake's family attorney Benjamin Crump told CNN in an appearance on Monday that the family does not have a designated pastor and their attorneys represent the family. Crump said Jacob Blake's mother tried to set up a call with her pastor and the president but it never materialized. He noted when President Barack Obama talked with Travyon Martin's family, he was also on the phone as the family's lawyer.

3. Blake's father said they don't have a pastor. trump lied again! The "pastor" he spoke to....

....probably was Jerry Falwell Jr., and asked about his wife, "can I get me some of that?"

6. Donald Trump is a loose cannon.

His handlers know if he were to talk off the cuff to family lawyers he'd likely say something that ended up granting legal liability to the White House or something. Smart to keep a muzzle on him.
