"You shouldn't do it," she said of the rioting. "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."
Lemon asked whether she had a message for politicians.
"For our president, Trump: First I want to say a family member and I don't know if it was heard or not said something that was not kind. She is hurting and I do apologize for that," she said.
"Our outburst does not reflect our behavior. And then also, for President Trump: I'm sorry I missed your call because had I not missed your call, maybe the comments that you made would have been different," Jackson said.
Jackson told Trump: "I'm not mad at you at all. I have the utmost respect for you as the leader of our country. 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."

This is gonna leave a mark.
Trying to recall when anyone said the same about obxxx. Crickets.......................
Don’t know the whole context of her statement or how she delivered it, but that seemed very generous of her.
She is probably getting viciously attacked by the Left right now for saying that.
The whole MSM, Democrat, Marxist complex must be cringing. I pray for this Mother and her unbridled courage.
brahahahah the commies didn’t expect that.
Not very tresvonesque of her was it?
Not very tresvonesque of her was it?
she’s a slave on the run from the dem plantation... i’m sure the democrat slave hounds will be hot on her trail by the end of the day.
This is incredible. She has a lot of pain, I am sure, over what happened to her child....even if he was at fault. Verdict still out on that.
Kudos to her. Rare gem in this madness.
Time to replace protesting the flag and raising a fist to God, with a moment of prayer for only Jesus can set you free.
CNN: And now we bring you comments from Jacob Blake’s mother...”I apologize to President Tr.....” We’re sorry there is apparent technical difficulty with that report. We’ll check back later.
The families of the lost children like George Floyd & Jacob Blake love their misguided, drug contaminated children. as they should, but, when I see butt wipes like Lebron James shutting down NBA games for two druggies, that is a bit much.
The scourge of drug addiction not only destroys the human being that gets addiction, but...it destroys the foundation of their family across all lines. Now, LeBron James can mouth off on whatever he chooses, but, if the American people and NFL.NBA fans, etc. support these idiots then let then all live in that horrible drug environment.
Folks....I can assure you, that when these police officers accused of abuse go to trial, not only will they be declared not guilty of any wrongdoing, but, they will openly sue the families and the city and states that arrested them, just a the young “Covington” teenager did who sued and won his case against CNN and other TV & Newspapers!!!
Lebron James and his uninformed weak brain, followers are “empty suits” from A-Z, and the NBA & NFL will suffer more then just declining viewers. Why? Both Floyd and Blake, killed themselves with a massive overdose of deadly drugs....sadly!!! Case closed!!!
“... he was at fault...” Learn young that trying to argue/fight with LEO on the street will NOT turn out well. Oddly enough, if one follows the commands things seem to go fairly well. I got stopped at 0130 last week by the sheriff’s patrol. Window down, truck off, flashers on, hands on wheel, yes sir, Mrs rktman will be getting the registration and insurance out of the glove box. Yes there is a weapon in the vehicle but not on my person. Verbal because they didn’t like my LED light bar being on. Neighbor (local LEO) said he can pretty much guarantee they lit me up to see if I was DUI based on time of day! Not much chance of that. Quit that a LONG time ago. Still looking to see if the lights were a violation though but NOT arguing with them at the time.
I was hearing that from Todd Herman. I guess Don Sourpuss Lemon didn’t like it. It needed to be said...
