That's what Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had to say about President Barack Obama's comments on the controversial killing of Florida resident Trayvon Martin, The Hill
Obama made his first public comments on Friday about the killing of Martin, 17, who was killed Feb. 26 by a self-identified volunteer neighborhood watchman. In his remarks Friday, Obama said hoped to see the case investigated properly because "if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon."
Gringrich, in an interview with conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, said he found Obama's comments disturbing, The Hill reported.
"What the president said, in a sense, is disgraceful," Gingrich told Hannity Friday evening. "It’s not a question of who that young man looked like. Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period.
"We should all be horrified no matter what the ethnic background," Gingrich continued. "Is the president suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot, that would be OK because it didn’t look like him. That’s just nonsense dividing this country up."
