UPDATE: NPR reported that “On the flight to Dallas from Washington, D.C., the president placed telephone calls to family members of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile…” 

President Obama reached out to Philando Castile’s mother in the wake of his untimely death in Falcon Heights, Minnesota on 5 July 2016 at the hand of a law enforcement officer who was seeking to identify two robbery suspects.

Unsurprisingly, Philando Castile has been painted as a martyr for the Black Lives Matter movement before the circumstances of the shooting have been revealed, continuing an ongoing trend for the communist terror organization. The case was thrust into the social media spotlight when Philando Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds posted a video of Castile after he had been shot.

On Monday, Diamond Reynolds made the talk show circuit, claiming that she and her boyfriend were profiled by Officer Jeronimo Yanez.

If character matters, one should consider that another video posted by Diamond Reynolds shows her bragging about smoking weed, with a painfully unhappy little girl in the back seat:

After the shooting, Reynolds went on the record saying that “a police officer should not be able to gun a man down for no reason,” and police officers have “mental problems” who are “damaged from all the past… the previous people they did killed.”

The New York Times posted a photo of Diamond Reynolds’ daughter Dae’Anna saying that the little girl was in the car when her mother’s boyfriend was shot:

The New York Times did not post a screenshot of Dae’Anna sitting in the back seat of her vehicle as her mother was bragging about “smoking a blunt” in the car:

Conversely, the New York Times praised Diamond Reynolds as “extraordinary.”

“Overnight, Ms. Reynolds, 26, has emerged as an extraordinary figure in the latest shooting of an African-American at the hands of a police officer,” gushed the New York Times.

Despite the fact that the Castile case is an ongoing investigation, Obama reached out to his mother Valerie:
