Donald Trump Literally Just Defended Charlottesville Nazis Because Fuck It We're Done Here
OH WOW HOLY SHIT DONALD TRUMP WHITE SUPREMACIST MOTHERFUCKIN' SAY WHAT? The president of America just did a press conference in the tacky-ass lobby of Trump Tower about his stupid "infrastructure" plan, but we all know that's not what journalists wanted to talk about. And Trump got MAD.
And we learned A LOT about Trump's true feelings about the Nazi attack that happened in Charlottesville this weekend. You can go ahead and disregard his Monday statement and go back to what he originally said this weekend, because Trump's point is that BOTH SIDES DO IT and BOTH SIDES ARE BAD, and did you know those Nazis had a permit, whereas the counter-protesters didn't even file the proper paperwork?
No, for real. And did you ALSO know that some of the people protesting the removal of confederate traitor loser statues weren't even Nazis or white supremacists, just normal sweet (racist) people who love (racist) statues? Don't let their screams of "Jews will not replace us!" and "Blood and soil!" fool you, these were STATUE LOVERS!
In case you're worried those tweets are somehow inaccurate, here's video of Trump saying exactly that:

You had a lot of people in that group who were there to innocently protest, and very legally protested, because I don't know if you know, they had a permit, the other group didn't have a permit, so I tell you this, there are two sides to a story ...
Yep, on one side you've got Nazis murdering Americans, and on the other side you've got snowflakes who have a problem with that somehow.
But that wasn't the only time Trump brought up the innocent and racist statue-loving Americans. In a longer, angrier answer, he suggested that the removal of confederate monuments is a SLIPPERY SLOPE to taking down statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, because that's the same. What's next, huh? Taking a wrecking ball to Mount Rushmore? Coloring all the presidents' heads off the money coins with a Sharpie?

Not all of those people were Neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. ... Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee. ... So, this week it's Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson's coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really have to ask yourself, where does it stop?
No really, we don't need to ask that, you fucking racist loon, because the simple difference, which you'd know if you ever goddamned read a book (or if you weren't a racist yourself), is that, while Washington and Jefferson did indeed own slaves, THEY DIDN'T FUCKING BECOME TRAITORS TO THE COUNTRY BY FIGHTING A WAR TO PRESERVE THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY.
(To be clear, they were dead at the time.)
Anyway, Trump's overarching point here is that there is "blame on both sides," and as his pussy voice shrieked louder, he said, "I don't have any doubt about it, and YOU DON'T HAVE ANY DOUBT ABOUT IT EITHER."
Here's where he really gets his back up wishing the fake lying press would think about the Nazis' feelings, because of how there is "blame on both sides" and the press has treated all the white supremacists and white nationalists and Nazis "very unfairly," because did you all see what ELSE happened?

You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs, and it was vicious and it was horrible, and it was a horrible thing to watch. But there is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left, you've just called them the left, that came violently attacking the other group. And you can say what you want, but that's the way it is.
Whatever, fuckhead who just sided with actual Nazis.
Effective protests against these awful people must be nonviolent, and much of what we saw in Charlottesville was! The real story of the "left" in Charlottesville was anti-racism protesters and clergy locking arms and singing "This Little Light Of Mine," while the Nazis were cracking heads and pushing up on riot cops, but you think Donald Fucking Trump's stupid bigoted ass saw that? Of course not.
David Duke's happy, which should tell you everything you need to know about Trump's little performance today:
