I’m sure you keeping seeing or hearing this name is the news ‘Joe Oliver‘, George Zimmerman’s so called close friend. Joe Oliver, a former CNN anchor, has been making the rounds of cable news and TV talk programs defending Zimmerman, the man who gunned down unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, Feb. 26.
Well last night, ‘Last Word,’ with host Lawrence O’Donell and his guests The New York Times‘ Charles Blow and The Washington Post‘s Jonathan Capehart, ripped in on Oliver’s claims that he was a “close friend” of Zimmerman’s.
Clearly frustrated and undone, Oliver begins to deflect the incessant questioning by saying he knew that the Trayvon Martin murder was not a racial incident because he had an “instinctual feeling” and “a good feeling” that told him otherwise.
Check out the photo below, Oliver, pictured above with his wife and kids, couldn’t answer basic questions about Zimmerman that a true friend would know.
