Clay Travis and Buck Sexton slam Obama and Biden for ‘victim buying’ after ex-President George Floyd’s tweet

President Obama continues to be lambasted for what has been called a tone-deaf politicized tweet following the Uvalde school shooting, as the former president called to remember George Floyd while the Americans mourned the loss of Texas schoolchildren.

“As we mourn the children of Uvalde today, we should take the time to recognize that two years have passed since George Floyd was killed under the knee of a police officer,” Obama said Wednesday.

On “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show,” host Clay Travis called the established connection “particularly troubled” and a prime example of Democrats continuing their penchant for “victim shopping.”

Co-host Buck Sexton explained how Democrats will seek to “spotlight” victims who could benefit them politically, while ignoring the majority of crime victims.

“Politics is all over the place for them. They don’t want a place where there is no political angle; a political struggle that is being played out. Everything is also used by the left as an opportunity for politics,” said said Sexton.

Biden seemed even more eager to exploit the Uvalde tragedy to his political advantage, quickly making public televised remarks that almost immediately deflected into disguising his political opponents and Americans who value the Second Amendment, he added. .

Returning to Obama’s tweet, Sexton said there was no direct comparison between Floyd’s death and the children murdered in Texas.

“George Floyd pointed a gun at a pregnant woman’s stomach during a home invasion… Law enforcement against George Floyd has absolutely nothing to do with what we see here in Uvalde – but that’s the ‘Democrat mentality’ on display.”

The hosts noted that Biden said little or nothing about the Goldman Sachs employee murdered on the Q train in Brooklyn, NY – and compared how quickly Biden traveled to Buffalo following a murder of allegedly racially motivated mass of black supermarket shoppers — to the fact that he never visited Waukesha, Wis., after an alleged black supremacist drove a red SUV in a Christmas parade last year.

“Joe Biden can drive to Buffalo immediately…but a black man drives an SUV through a parade, kills tons of white people, Joe Biden can’t find time to go,” Travis said.

“Identity politics requires Democrats to sell the idea that white people commit crimes in unique ways…in an effort to increase black voting,” he added.

Regarding Waukesha suspect Darrell Brooks Jr., the hosts said “the person who committed the crime did not match their story.”
