Default Trump slams two GOP senators who criticized him on Charlottesville

Quote:
President Trump fired back Thursday at Senate Republicans who have criticized his response to the Charlottesville violence, accusing Lindsey Graham of a “disgusting lie” for saying he drew a “moral equivalency” between white supremacists and counter-protesters -- while also tagging Jeff Flake as "toxic."

“Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists … and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can't forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!” Trump tweeted.

Nice to see a president willing to call out both sides when they spew their bravo sierra. Anybody that claims President Trump made a moral equivalency between people like Heyer and the KKK are either lying, stupid or in desperate need of a reading comprehension class.

But you don't understand. The only groups capable of violence are the KKK, the white supremacists and any non-left leaning group. The Left leaning groups where all there to plant daisies and give people hugs, while wearing helmets and carrying clubs. They only had those because they were going to start up a for-charity baseball game afterwards.

I find it refreshing that we have a President who calls things as he sees them. No fake anger or sympathy, just the straight from the his mouth to our ears.
Whether on not I agree with him, there is little doubt how he feels about something and what he most likely will do. Which is why I laugh at the prognosticators who daily warn us here of what he is capable, and what evil he intends to place upon our citizens in a surprise move to fascism.

The banks don't like him.

The big corporations don't like him

The insurance companies don't like him

The lobbyists don't like him

The RINO's don't like him

The progressives don't like him.

The looters and rioters don't like him.

It seems we have a POTUS who is out of favor with all those groups the Democrats say we shouldn't favor. Given all those qualities,,; I have to ask,,,; What is it about that, which is not to like?

I saw that press conference the other day. The one where he said there fine people on both sides, one of those sides being Neo-Nazis. So Lindsey Graham, if he did characterize the president's words as such and Trumps interpretation is correct, is absolutely right. Trump is just pissed that better men than him are holding him accountable for his own words.

The bolded part of your statement lands you firmly in the "lack of comprehension" category.
The "sides" are right and left, conservative and liberal, he was no more referring to the neo-Nazis as the good people on the right than he was to antifa or rioters as good people on the left.

I am against taking down monuments just to keep the snowflakes feelings from just now being hurt by a statue that has been standing since well before they were born. I am also not a member of any of the groups that was attending the demonstrations.

I consider myself a fine, upstanding member of our community as to other members of the my community. But by the standards of the left, I am a reprobate and a racist simply by the commonality of my position on this specific issue.

While I am quite sure that the Nazi and White supremacists are undoubtedly opposed to the removal of the monuments in part to their racist views, there are still others of us that simply want to preserve our history.

Good for President Trump.

Gramnesity and the Flake are far to the left of McCain.
