Brothers say Trayvon’s Death was ‘like 9/11 for us.’
George and Robert Zimmerman are actually having delusions of grandeur on such levels that they compared themselves to Great Britain’s Royal Family.
They also, even more tragically, likened their personal ordeal on the day George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin in suburban Orlando, Fla, to the 9/11 tragedy that the United States suffered.
Yes, you read that right. And after you finish upchucking your meal, read further.
The Zimmerman brothers were put up in a swanky hotel for a wide-ranging, comprehensive interview with CNN to be aired in proximity to the anniversary of the unarmed black teenager’s death in a gated community in Sanford, Fla.
George and Robert Zimmerman took full of advantage of three comped nights at a upscale Ritz-Carlton in Miami. In fact, the brothers had such a great time on CNN’s tab, they enraged the producers.
The hated siblings racked up $3,600 in expenses by buying dinner for 10 at the hotel restaurant, getting pampered several times at the spa and buying Mercedes-Benz cologne at the gift shop as they filmed an interview with CNN in February, a profile in GQ Magazine reveals.
When CNN initially refused to pay the bloated tab, which also included several room service charges, cleaned-out minibars and laundry service, the brothers began acting like pampered, entitled babies. Once the hotel threatened to call police, Robert retreated to his room, shaking, and proceeded to get wasted, smoke cigarettes and chow on shrimp as he cowered under blankets.
“You and your brother are evil!” a CNN producer reportedly screamed at Robert Zimmerman, according to the profile.
CNN eventually paid the tab. And Robert Zimmerman was consoled by a producer for Dr. Drew, whose show the brother went on before George Zimmerman went to trial.
George Zimmerman, to go along with his complex, wouldn’t speak to GQ unless the magazine comped him a week at a hotel.
The interviews details George Zimmerman’s quick descent into debt and paranoia after George Zimmerman shot dead unarmed Martin, 17, on Feb. 26, 2012.
Here’s where the idiotic and nonsensical flies off the charts, beginning when the Zimmerman’s open those holes in their faces and dribble out absurdities.
That day is like “9/11 for my family,” Robert explained to a Fox News producer, who wanted an interview on the second anniversary of the shooting earlier this year.
“We can’t travel together that day — it’s like having the whole royal family travel together!” he told the cable network of the anniversary.
The family — brothers George and Robert, sister Grace, and parents Bob and Gladys — consider themselves victims of the shooting, according to the profile. Robert Zimmerman said he believed his brother suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, and that George Zimmerman has remained unemployed since the shooting.
Shooter Zimmerman still faces over $2.5 million in debt and legal fees, while his parents, who were forced to leave their suburban Orlando home, have racked up thousands in hotel costs and rent at a safe house somewhere near Lake Mary, Fla.
