[ applause ] >> he might have said that. >> he was thinking it, i bet. >> people can see at that it's him and not an actual sound bite. >> port of the reason we're light in sound bites is congress is in recess now. >> yeah. >> they are playing kick ball? >> yeah. they are playing head's up seven-up. >> even the budget monster? i bet he is a poor sport. >> i won't go!
i won't! i won't! [ laughter ] >> you can't make me! >> go to the kick ball game. stop it. all right. it was because yesterday was the easter egg roll at the white house. so this is what fox is going to fill in a slow news day with. fox. okay. let me see here. obama's image adorns basketballs at easter egg roll. they are going to turn this something scary and racist. >> is that really appropriate, though, be playing is basketball with the president's face. >> yeah? that just doesn't seem -- >> yesterday's white house easter egg roll the easter bunny -- sure a muslim would do just to throw you off.
[ screaming ] >> assorted costume characters. this year also featured the barack obama memorial basketball. >> memorial? >> yeah, i don't know what that means. players used red white and blue balls emblazened with a portrait of the president. obama signed some of the balls. and posed for pictures with some of the professional basketball players.

[ buzzer sounds ] >> that's really unbelievable. the george zimmerman defense fund website. he would like you to send him money. i am the real george zimmerman.com? >> yeah. >> the other breaking new yesterday, of course, was after dismissing the use of a grand jury the special prosecutor must decide whether to charge him or
not. people on both sides are spinning it as to what that means or not. >> well, the martin thinks this now allows for an arrest of george zimmerman. >> right. they may not need a grand jury. >> right. >> but didn't someone on zimmerman's side say we applaud her courage. huh? don't you think him putting up a defense fund assuming he thinks he is going to be charged. >> sure. >> or just send money to this paypal account. >> or he just likes flags. >> yeah, i don't get that. it is very patriotic. >> if you have a defense fund it implies you are guilty of something like shooting an unarmed kid. there was spray paint on a building that said long live
zimmerman and that was a photo taken from a vandalized black culture center. >> interesting. >> yeah i'm sure that will be in the defense brief. >> yeah. >> did you or did you not vandalize? yep, and i would do it again. >> angela corey, said the case will not go to a grand jury. from the moment she was assigned she noted she may not need a grand jury. the petition should not be considered a factor in the final determination of her case in her office. the ap did note that only first degree murder cases require the use of grand juries in florida. so i'm not sure why this wouldn't be considered first degree. it sure looks to me, jim, like he was, you know stalking the kid with the skittles and then
killed the kid. >> yeah. >> the lawyer for martins family said they are trying to have patience and faith through all of this. we want a public trial to show the system works for everybody. zimmerman could be arrested as early as this week. is this due to the website -- >> yeah, i think he knows the writing on the wall -- >> see what you did there? >> uh-huh. >> lawyers for zimmerman said if he is not charged, he'll speak out. i see. and also he's maybe afraid he might incriminate himself like the other people who have spoken for him with the confusing and sometimes inaccurate stories about what hand. so anyway that's the latest. >> he also complains he has lost his livelihood his job -- >> he is kind of whiny. >> yeah. >> trayvon martin lost his life. so there is that.
