Benjamin Crump, George Floyd’s family lawyer in the murder trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, revealed in an appearance on The View this week that self-important actor/activist George Clooney has been emailing advice to Crump about how to win the case.
Crump says Clooney has suggested that Chauvin should volunteer to “get down on the floor in that courtroom, and let somebody come and put their knee on his neck.”
“He emails me from time to time. He talks about — he has children and he wants them to live in a better world. He said they keep talking about the assassination of the character of George Floyd, there’s trace amounts of drugs and oh that’s the cause of death not what Derek Chauvin did,” Crump said.
“He says, ‘Attorney Crump, you should tell them if Derek Chauvin feels so confident in that, he should volunteer during his case, to get down on the floor in that courtroom, and let somebody come and put their knee on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds and be able to see if he can survive,’” Crump said.
Blowhard Clooney not only doesn’t seem to know how trials work; he also apparently hasn’t been paying attention to the actual Chauvin trial. The defense has proven that Chauvin’s knee was not on Floyd’s neck but between his shoulder blades, that Floyd’s breathing was not obstructed, and that he died of an overdose, not “trace amounts” of drugs.
If Clooney wants his children to grow up in a better world, he can start by promoting the truth instead of race-mongering propaganda.
