George Zimmerman has a Twitter account and he's using it to weigh in on the recent slaying of two Virginia journalists on national television Wednesday. In a rant, he called the killer Vester Lee Flanagan and President Obama out of their names. 

For someone who killed someone three years ago and faced trial, it's interesting to see Zimmerman so vocal about the actions of another person who has committed murder. Zimmerman also has his facts wrong, as Obama spoke openly about the incident the same day.

"It breaks my heart every time you read or hear about these kids of incidents," President Obama said to WPVI.

"What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism," the president continued.

Obviously, Zimmerman is still holding a grudge from when Obama compared himself to Martin as outrage spread over how his death was handled by police officers in Sanford, Florida. The president famously said, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

Zimmerman mocked Obama with this tweet comparing him to Michael Brown and Flanagan. 

We have a feeling this will not be the end of Zimmerman's rants.
