Rachel Jeantel, the woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin when he was killed by George Zimmerman, did not particularly appreciate a line of questioning by Zimmerman's defense attorney today. Asked whether Martin may have been lying about his location to her, Jeantel replied, in a very calm tone, "That's real retarded, sir. That's real retarded to do that, sir."
