President Trump visited Kenosha, Wisc., Tuesday to survey the damage left from rioting over the shooting of Jacob Blake in the back by a Kenosha police officer. The president didn’t meet with Blake’s family, allegedly because the family didn’t want to make it political. It will certainly be made political Thursday when Joe and Jill Biden meet with the Blake family on Biden’s trip to Kenosha.
NEW: VP Biden and Dr. Biden will be meeting with Jacob Blake Sr. and other members of the Blake family, per campaign

Of course they are.

Yes using them as pawns, so predictable!

Do they ever get tired of pandering ?

Biden meeting with Blake Sr. who failed miserably as a parent and had the audacity to lecture decent people is beyond the pale.

This is such a bad idea.

But Jacob Blake Sr. had said he wasn’t going to meet with Trump because he didn’t want to make things political: “I’m not getting into politics. It’s all about my son, man. It has nothing to do with a photo op,” he said.
Hear that, Joe? It has nothing to do with a photo op. And some friendly advice: Don’t tell Blake “you ain’t black” or ask if he’s a junkie.
I thought the father refused to meet with Trump because he refused to make it political?

I thought they didn’t want to make this political.

Glad he didn’t want to make it political

It seems like the Blake family that did not want to get political is getting political all of a sudden

Which proves the family’s refusal to meet with Trump was politically motivated

Seeing as Joe Biden, while vice president in 2014, headed up the White House’s “It’s On Us” campaign to bring awareness to sexual assault on college campuses, will the Bidens be making a second visit, or is his interest in sexual assault limited to college campuses?
Where’s the “Me Too” people??!!
— khartle (@kdog531) September 2, 2020
What about his victim? Are they meeting with her too?
— Daun Hook (@DaunHook) September 2, 2020
Are they going to meet with the woman he assaulted?
— CVeon (@veon_c) September 2, 2020
Biden trying to get some tips on Blake's methods. Never know when they'll come in handy, out there on the campaign trail and all those women.
— Ron E (@ronaboe5) September 2, 2020
Will they be asking about his sexual assault charges? For TWO separate incidents?

Think they’re gonna tell him his behavior towards women is unacceptable??

Meeting with the rape victims of Jacob or just his family?
— Smells like another man (@Spec_of_truth) September 2, 2020
Will they meet with the woman Jacob Blake sexually assaulted?
— KSLawWolf (@KSLawWolf) September 2, 2020
Blake raped a woman, had a warrant open for his arrest, resisted arrest, disobeyed officers, and went for a knife in his truck

Democrat presidential candidate/accused sexual abuser stays entirely on brand by meeting with family of accused sex abuser. https://t.co/sNdAxLf7PG

Trump visited with law enforcement and business owners
Biden will visit with the parents of a sexual abuser
I don’t want to hear the left is the party of women

Hoping he brings his teleprompter

If we wanted this sort of pandering from a president we would have elected Jesse Jackson back in ’88.
Reports: This is the reason Jacob Blake had a warrant out for his arrest in Kenosha https://t.co/oqOuyr67TS
