Jacob Blake’s mother spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon last night in an interview where she showed such grace in the face of Lemon’s effort to bait her into an anti-Trump comment. She had nothing bad to say about the president but had plenty to say about the rioters:

Jacob Blake’s mom on violence in Kenosha:

“My family and I are very hurt. And quite frankly disgusted. And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name. You shouldn’t do it. … it’s just not acceptable.”

We have respect for President Trump as the leader of our country.

Tom Elliott tweeted quotes from the three families that BLM claimed to be rioting in support of…The problem is that these families also denounced the rioters:
George Floyd’s mom: “Channel your anger to do something positive or make a change another way because we’ve been down this road already … The anger, damaging your hometown is not the way he’d want … just relax. Justice will be served.”

Michael Brown’s family: “We reject any kind of violence directed toward members of law enforcement. … We specifically denounce the actions of stand-alone agitators who unsuccessfully attempt to derail the otherwise peaceful … movement that has emerged throughout the U.S.”

Trayvon’s family: “As we’ve stated repeatedly in the past, our family rejects any kind of violence directed toward members of law enforcement & our community in general … We must work together to peacefully bring about change to our communities. Violence is never the answer.
