    His speech clearly referred to the hatred and bigotry of the white supremacists. How come the left can see white supremacists where there are none (there are here, of course) but can't see reference to white supremacists where it is clearly intended?

    He didn't say "white supremacists" but made a point to spread the blame around. He wasn't clear at all.

    He made a point of going the "both sides" angle.

    This was a white supremacy rally. What "both sides" angle even exists here?

    This looks terrible. Even for Trump, this is bad.

    The city doesn't want that statue any more.

    It's a local Issue that is being turned into a kerfuffle by white nationalists engaging in identity politics.

    For years the right harped on and on and on about how Obama couldn't say "radical Islam" and such. Does Trump have a similar aversion to saying "white supremacy"?

    Glad to see the orange moron managed to take a few minutes to condemn this act before bragging about how good a job he's doing as POTUS.

    What a disgusting piece of crap he is.
