Joe Biden expected to attend George Floyd funeral, family lawyer says

Source: CNBC

Former vice president Joe Biden is expected to attend the funeral next week of George Floyd, the black man who died at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer, a lawyer for Floyd’s family said Tuesday.

The lawyer, Ben Crump, said Floyd’s family will hold the funeral in Houston, Texas, on June 9, after holding memorial services in Minneapolis on Thursday, and another memorial in North Carolina on Saturday. “And we understand Vice President Biden will be in attendance” at the funeral, said Crump.

A spokesman for Biden’s campaign had no immediate comment when asked to confirm Crump’s statement.

CNBC has requested comment from Crump on whether President Donald Trump has been invited to the funeral as well. The White House had no immediate comment when asked if Trump planned to attend the funeral.

3. Dump wouldn't be welcomed even if we wanted to go (and he clearly doesn't).

If the Trumpsterfire did go, he'd go off-script, say something shitty, dog-whistle some racist crap, and all hell would break loose. Plus, black people scare the shit out of him.

6. After what I read about the family's comments about the Orange Turd's phone call

I find it hard to believe he'd be welcome. Much less invited to speak.
