When Kentucky's ambitious (and completely unqualified and amoral) Attorney-General made his national television appearance this morning he perhaps revealed more than he should have with this Freudian Slip. Not such an auspicious start.
Cameron also said he was still gathering information about the death of Breonna Taylor, having received the ballistics report from the FBI this week. Breonna Taylor was shot to death on March 13, 2020 by members of the Louisville Metro Police Department. No charges have ever been laid.
CAMERON: Well, let me just say that I condone violence in all of its forms. I want to make that clear from the very beginning. I also want to address you know, during my speech Tuesday evening, I tried to make it very clear that as Republicans, we recognize those who in earnest want to make sure that there's peace, justice and equality in this country--
MARGARET BRENNAN: Did you mean condemn, sir?
CAMERON: I'm sorry, say that again.
MARGARET BRENNAN: You said condone.
CAMERON: Say that again please.
MARGARET BRENNAN: I think perhaps you misspoke when you said you condone violence, you meant you condemn it?
CAMERON: No, condemn violence in all forms. Absolutely, yes, ma'am.
The short version.
Kentucky’s attorney general says he has received a long-awaited FBI ballistics report in the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor. Taylor was shot when police used a no-knock search warrant at her Louisville home in March. https://t.co/lZcdMuzgwW
