Civil rights activist Al Sharpton attacked President Donald Trump and vowed not to let those with agendas use George Floyd as prop during his powerful eulogy for the man who was anonymous in life but sparked global protests for justice in death.
Hollywood celebrities, musicians and the politically powerful filed into a sanctuary in front of the golden casket of Floyd for a memorial service on Thursday as mourners began a three-city farewell.
The service unfolded at the Lindquist Sanctuary at the North Central University as a judge less than a mile away set bail at $750,000 each for three of the four fired Minneapolis police officers charged with aiding and abetting murder in his death.
The memorial drew the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and members of Congress, including Reps. Ilhan Omar, Sheila Jackson-Lee and Ayana Pressley. Among the celebrities in attendance were T.I., Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Marsai Martin.

What a freakin circus. It’s over.
Boy, look what they’ve done to our country.

George Floyds funeral is expected to have hundreds or thousands of attendees, including high profile politicians like Biden. Meanwhile people have not been allowed to go to their own family members funerals because attendance was capped due to COVID.

Al sharpton. Did anyone mention Tawana in their diatribes about injustice?
Good thing black people cant catch corona
I guess EVERY funeral in Minnesota is the Wellstone Memorial
We’ve lost three friends since the lockdown started.
Nobody to WuFlu.
And none of the families have been able to have a service yet.
This is the puss who gave the police station to the savages.
Makes me want to watch “Bonfire of the Vanities.”
“The Real McCoy and the Forgotton Lamb.”
This needs more pictures.
George made room in the jailhouse for another one of his brothers.
