Last night, George Zimmerman appeared with Fox News’ Sean Hannity where he discussed the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Although he apologized to Trayvon’s parent for them having to bury their son, he shockingly said he does not regret the tragic events of that February night. He said, “I feel that it was all God’s plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it” (shaking head).
George, who said he is not racist, also questioned the motives of folks like Al Sharpton, whom he says rushed to judgment.
“I can’t guess what their motives are. I would just ask for an apology. I mean, if I did something that was wrong, I would apologize.”
Sources say George did the interview with Hannity because he supported him in the past….but he was also set to talk to Barbara Walters. Barbara turned down the interview after he asked that ABC get him a hotel room for a month. She also said George said his grandmother was half black–and raised 2 black children.
On another note, the family of Trayvon Martin was not too happy with the interview George gave. They appeared on “Fox & Friends” this morning and first took issue with his apology saying he was just trying to save face. Secondly, Tracy Martin (Trayvon’s Dad) questioned why he said the events were all a part of God’s plan.
“I don’t understand what he was thinking by saying it was God’s plan that he murdered our child,” said Tracy Martin. “I really don’t understand what God he worships because it’s not the same God that I worship.”
Trayvon’s mom, Sabrina Fulton asked, “Why would God have him kill an unarmed teenager? It makes no sense.”
