Candidates Blasted For Martin Case Remarks, White House senior adviser David Plouffe lashed out on Sunday over a pair of comments by Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum to President Barack Obama’s reaction to the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“Those two comments are really irresponsible,” Plouffe said on CNN. “I would consider them reprehensible.” “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon,” Obama said on Friday.

“Is the president suggesting if it had been a white who had been shot, that would be OK because it wouldn’t look like him?” Gingrich said Friday on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “That’s just nonsense. I mean, dividing this country up, it is a tragedy this young man was shot.”

In a separate radio interview Friday, Santorum had a similar reaction.

“What the president of the United States should do is try to bring people together, not use these types of horrible and tragic individual cases to try to drive a wedge in America,” Santorum said.
