Obama Camp: GOP Criticism on Trayvon Martin Case Is ‘Abysmal, Despicable’

Obama campaign spokeswoman tells Republicans to ‘watch their own words.’

An Obama campaign spokeswoman responded on Wednesday to criticism from two GOP candidates regarding his remarks on the Trayvon Martin killing.

“I think it's abysmal, despicable that people like Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are trying to make this a divisive issue," said Stephanie Cutter, Obama's deputy campaign manager, on CNN's Starting Point.

 

"They should watch their own words,” she added.

Gingrich called Obama’s remarks on the shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old in Florida “disgraceful,” while Santorum said the president was trying to "drive a wedge" between people.
