The Trump administration says that they have reached out to the father of the rapist who was shot by police in Kenosha to request a visit from the President, but the father states that he is not interested in meeting with the President, stating that he has already met with “President Biden.”
Benjamin Crump, who is the man’s attorney stated that they had “received no calls to set up any kind of meeting,” which seems to be indicating that the Trump team is lying. Note, however the careful phrasing. The attorney didn’t say that they had not received a call, they claim that they had not received a call to set up a meeting. This is the kind of weasel language that lawyers use. As long as the call did not actually and specifically discuss a meeting, even if that was the purpose of the call, then both of the parties are telling the truth, even if the lawyer’s statement is a bit misleading.
Note how the press runs with that:
Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney who is representing Blake’s family, claimed no one from the White House had reached out to them.
Crump is a race baiting hustler and I wouldn’t trust him from here to… well, anywhere.
