Well rehearsed P.C. interview though.


Didn't take long or the Trib to delete my comment that apparently didn't fit their narrative.


Oh, I see. A police officer needs to "comfort a mob" that's destroying buildings and smashing windows. I'm surprised that the interviewer didn't ask him to renounce his "white privilege" than was mentioned. I wonder if he would if asked?
