The family’s attorney, Ben Crump, revealed the Presidential hopeful privately met with the mourning family and they had an hour-long conversation. Crump says, “Listening to one another is what will begin to heal America” and during the meeting, Biden “listened, heard their pain, and shared in their woe.” He adds, “That compassion meant the world to this grieving family.”
Of course, Biden couldn’t miss the photo opp and he posed with George’s uncle, Roger Floyd, along with Crump, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Rep. Cedric Richmond.
The former VP is also set to send a video message for Tuesday’s funeral, which he’d love to physically attend, but he’s afraid that it’ll rob the attention from the cause.
