Julia Jackson–the mom of Jacob Blake, the black man who was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin–condemned leftist rioters… and praised President Donald Trump.
Speaking to CNN’s Don Lemon, Jackson said she’s “disgusted” by what violent rioters are doing to her community.
“My family and I are very hurt and quite frankly disgusted. And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name,” Jackson said.
“You shouldn’t do it. People shouldn’t do it anyway, but to use my child or any other mother or father’s child — our tragedy — to react in that manner is just not acceptable. And it’s not helping Jacob. It’s not helping Jacob or any other of the men or women who has suffered in these areas,” she continued.
Lemon then asked Jackson if she had any words for politicians.
Jackson took time to publicly apologize to President Trump for missing his personal phone call.
“I have the utmost respect for you as the leader of our country,” she added. “Like I said before and I’m not saying this to him directly: We should always get the details from the right source before we start throwing bricks.”
Blake, 29, was shot by Kenosha police seven times, in front of his children, in an incident caught on video.
Miraculously, Blake survived… but has suffered massive injuries.
According to the family attorney, Blake is paralyzed from the waste down. Bullets also left holes in his stomach, damaged his kidney and liver, and required “nearly his entire colon and small intestine” be removed.
