“Amy Klobuchar has more contempt for her own staffers than she does for bad cops.”
Sen. Amy Klobuchar came under fire on Wednesday when a report revealed that back in 2006 she did not prosecute the policeman who allegedly murdered George Floyd. Kemberlee noted that she blew her chance to become Biden’s VP.
But the left and right came out in full force on social media, dragging Klobuchar through the burning coals for her horrible decision.
Here are a few reactions I found on Twitter:
In 2006 Amy Klobuchar, then a district attorney, declined to bring charges against a cop who had shot and killed a Native American man.
Two days ago that cop, Derek Chauvin, murdered George Floyd.
Amy Klobuchar needs to resign.

This will end Amy Klobuchar’s chance of becoming Joe Biden’s VP, which is poetic justice. I worked at the Hennepin County Public Defender during law school while she was County Attorney. She was FAR from progressive, and her presidential rebranding effort has been tough to watch. https://t.co/IMtO2Wsnof

It turns out @amyklobuchar could’ve saved George Floyd’s life if she’d only done her job as Hennepin County Attorney and prosecuted Ex-Cop Derek Chauvin instead of tossing poor blacks in jail in order to win Republican votes and saunter into the Senate. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

Amy Klobuchar protected the cop who murdered #GeorgeFloyd.
Just like Kamala Harris kept innocent Jamal Trulove behind bars.
Just like Joe Biden wrote the Crime Bill that put the prison-industrial-complex on steroids.
They all work for the system. None of them work for you. https://t.co/f7FKZXfWaJ

Have a hard time seeing Biden picking @amyklobuchar given the circumstances.

A lot of good choices for Biden’s VP, and Amy Klobuchar sure as hell ain’t one of them.

If Joe Biden wants to depress Black turnout he should definitely pick Amy Klobuchar so we can sit around talking about the crime bill and her flubbed response on George Floyd and her impulse to go easy on cops.

Soooo Amy Klobuchar’s Vice Presidential ambitions died today.

I’m happy to report that there is now zero chance Amy Klobuchar is going to be the VP pick. Good riddance.

Klobuchar’s minimal visibility as this horror unfolded in her home state is a tacit admission of guilt.

The police have too much power in this country.

Oh AMY! Why am I NOT surprised by this news… “And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck” #WokeAF https://t.co/7FERvBUvwl

The police officer who killed George Floyd was also part of 3 other police shootings of civilians, incl. one while Klobuchar was county prosecutor.
