MICHAEL BROWN’S GRANDFATHER TO OBAMA: ‘I VOTED FOR YOU,’ SO COME MEET ME
President Obama has become notorious among his Missouri supporters for not visiting the embattled city, and the grandfather of the teen shot by police there a week ago is perturbed over the President’s distance. This week he went on TV to remind Obama he voted for him and urge the President to make his way to Ferguson to stand with his family.
In an appearance on MSNBC, Michael Brown’s grandfather, Lesley McSpadden, insisted that it was time for “my President to step forward” and take action in Ferguson.
With the rest of the Brown family, McSpadden has spent the week rallying support for their fallen family member, and Obama’s lackluster response has vexed them all.
