Trump calls son of murdered San Antonio police officer. Barack Obama unavailable for comment

The family of slain San Antonio police officer Benjamin Marconi received condolences from president-elect Donald Trump on Monday night, according to The San Antonio Express News.

On a Facebook post that has since become unavailable for public viewing, Dane Gregory Marconi posted, “Just got off the phone with the future president Trump, he sends his condolences to our family.”

According to Politico, Trump’s campaign hasn’t confirmed the call, but such classy gestures aren’t uncommon for Trump, who also called slain NYPD Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo’s widow two weeks ago.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the Express News article.

Marconi was shot and killed execution style on Sunday during a San Antonio traffic stop. After a 30-hour manhunt, Otis Tyrone McKane was arrested for the murder.

By contrast, President Obama did make sure to call the family members of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two black men killed in police shootings last July in Louisiana and Minnesota. The president also made sure more White House representatives attended the funeral of Michael Brown than were sent for the funeral of former British PM Margarat Thatcher last year.

Priorities, don’t you know!
