According to CNN, Rachel Jeantel — the friend Trayvon Martin was speaking to on the phone before he was killed—is a star (witness, at least). When asked by George Zimmerman’s defense if Trayvon could have been lying about his location, she answered:
That’s real retarded, sir. That’s real retarded to do that, sir. Why on earth—? Trayvon did not know [Zimmerman].
Star witness, indeed.
Unrelated: This week Rachel tweeted (and deleted) a picture of her “court nails.”
