The protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., along with the ongoing standstill over the next coronavirus stimulus package are expected to dominate the Sunday talk show circuit this weekend. 

Blake was shot by a Kenosha police officer seven times and tased twice on Sunday, leaving him partially paralyzed. Police have identified three officers involved in the shooting earlier this week. 

On Tuesday night, two protesters were shot and killed and another was injured. Officials later arrested Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Illinois, who faces multiple homicide charges.

Blake’s family attorney, Ben Crump, has said there is a disparity in how police treated Rittenhouse versus how they treated Blake. Crump is booked on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
