We are completely filled with gratitude and honored to have been selected to host Vice President Biden, Dr. Jill Biden, and the Floyd family for this historic meeting, Williams said in a statement provided to Eater. Its unfortunate that Floyds death was the catalyst for this meeting, but we are so inspired by the Floyd familys resilience are hopeful that this meeting continues to advance the mission of justice for George Floyd.
According to National Public Radio, Biden did not attend the actual funeral because of concerns about his Secret Service detail causing a distraction. Hundreds of Houstonians lined up in the heat to say their goodbyes to Floyd, who attended high school in Houston and was involved with the citys illustrious rap scene.

They didn't want Biden mumbling and drooling
It was a closed service.
Im 100% sure it was political.
Also Trump called the family 2 weeks ago - but you dont hear about that.
Pandering at its finest.
Distraction equals: folks around Biden well *armed*
I wonder why they didn’t meet at Popeye’s?
I think Joe’s handlers knew that this funeral would be a total shitshow so no live appearance, no chance of gaffes.
plus he might get the chinese virus there.
“Also Trump called the family 2 weeks ago - but you dont hear about that.”
Yes you do. The brother said President Trump didn’t listen to him or let him speak. He claimed Trump was too busy talking the whole time.
Now THAT I hadnt heard.
Did he still have on his African scarf or was it already returned to the props department?
Or Churches Fried Chicken.
I wonder where the “family” was when he was unemployed, using drugs and passing phony 20s.
They didn’t seem to care then.
Wow. Just wow.
Cue the folks who lecture “repubs must reach out to the black community.”.
so was i- i was giving 5-to-1 odds Biden would refer to him as Pink Floyd.
Yes. Isn't it?
Think about it, Williams. Not only was Floyd's death the catalyst but the accelerant is the fact that it's an election year.
Think about it, Williams. If this wasn't an election year and if the demonicRAT nominee wasn't fearful of losing votes to a popular Republican President who had improved the lives of millions of black people, that meeting wouldn't've taken place.
Think about it.
Did Joe have the fried chicken?
I heard that Governor Abbott also met with the family but that isn’t getting all the same mention that Biden’s visit did.
Wonder if Biden did a fundraiser or two while he was in town “out of respect for this man”.
Trump should have gone to the funeral or done a low flyover on Air Force One.
The closed service is today. The viewing yesterday was public.
Joe attended neither. He met privately with the family and recorded a video for the funeral.
did he wear black face to try to identify with them? He could get makeup tips from Northam- who refused to step down- but now anyone having said anything even slightly off color are having to resign-
Where are the blm folks screaming for northam to resign?
