America is burning and Joe Biden’s staffers and some hotshot Hollywood celebrities are paying the fuel bill.
13 Biden staffers and numerous Hollywood A-lister and have joined the mo0vement and are put up money to bail out the rioters.
Look, everyone agrees the cop was wrong and the deceased deserved to get justice and the cop has been arrested and will face charges in court. Isn’t that what the rioters want? They have it, so they need to stop before they go too far. The cops were arrested, why are they still rioting?
At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”
But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.
Bates instead pointed to Biden’s comments that protesters have the right to be angry but that more violence won’t solve justice problems.
President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Saturday said it was “disturbing” that Biden’s team “would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building,” in an email about the Reuters story that called for Biden to condemn the riots.
Trump, a Republican who has described himself as a “law and order” president, on Friday called protesters “thugs,” and on Saturday said states and cities must get “much tougher” on anti-police protests or the federal government will step in by using the military and making arrests.
Trump has also expressed sympathy over the case of George Floyd, who died on Monday after a police officer pinned him to ground by kneeling on his neck.
From The Daily Caller:
They were joined by a number of celebrities, from Chrissy Teigen and Justin Timberlake to Steve Carell and Emily Ratajkowski.
The Minnesota Freedom Fund, which had pledged to support bail payments for those protesting the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, announced Saturday that they had received tens of thousands of small donations totaling over $20 million.
Please join me in supporting the Minneapolis protestors by donating to the @mnfreedomfund. The freedom fund is combatting the harms of incarceration by paying bail for low income individuals who cannot otherwise afford: https://t.co/tFr8Jh7TUX
