President Obama Speaks Out On Trayvon Martin of the Day: In stark contrast to Geraldo Rivera’s stunningly callous victim-blaming, President Obama this morning delivered a powerful statement of support for Trayvon Martin’s parents in response to a question about the ongoing investigation.

“When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids,” the president said. “I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this… You know, if I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.”
