During a Wednesday interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, President Trump admitted he hadn't seen the entire video of George Floyd's murder because of its extreme length—more than eight minutes.

Here's video of Trump's interview with Hannity.


Trump told Hannity:

"Well, the George Floyd case, nothing has to be said. I watched that, I couldn't really watch it for that long a period of time, it was over eight minutes, and who could watch that?"



Though Trump did acknowledge the officer who killed Floyd may have "some big problems, there's no question about it," he went on to defend the killer of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta.

Trump claimed Brook's murderer "heard a gunshot and saw a flash" which the officer never claimed.



Twitter couldn't believe the shameless insensitivity of Trump's words.



Just as worrisome to many online was Trump's apparent inability to focus on anything but himself for extended periods of time.



Some thought that Trump might govern differently if he made himself confront difficult footage like the video of Floyd's death.


Here's the full clip of Trump's interview with Sean Hannity.

America deserves a President that can focus on important issues for much longer than eight minutes.
