Trump Reasserts ‘Blame On Both Sides’ in Fiery Exchanges With Media

August 15th, 2017 · 15 Comments · Analysis and Comment, News and Events

Tuesday afternoon’s executive order announcement on infrastructure didn’t take long to implode into a series of crackling exchanges between Donald Trump and the media following the weekend fallout in Charlottesville, Va. If you missed it check out the video. The video kicks off with Trump’s declaration that he’ll streamline the infrastructure approval process. Around the 9 minute mark he takes questions.

So Trump went from “blame on both sides” to reading a teleprompter prompted by outraged staff to fix his initial remarks to rebelling and revisiting his original thoughts emboldening the bigots that furthered his election. And because he doesn’t do his homework (and maybe he doesn’t care), Trump would actually understand that he’s embracing this kind of talk from a cretinous bigot who wants someone in the hope more capable than “somebody like Donald Trump who does not give his daughter to a Jew.” Ivanka Trump is married to Jared Kushner. Ivanka converted to Judaism. “I don’t think that you can feel about race the way I do and watch that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl, okay.” Only in the mind of cretinism.

Check out this extraordinary video from HBO.

    Charlottesville, VA, Friday night. This is what Donald Trump and Tom White support.

    “Jews will not replace us”

    Now that’s real (totalitarian) leadership! Play one side against the other! Forget about any “righteous” side… Grant de facto legitimacy to Nazis and racists… Making America great again — like we were 100 years ago… (Maybe he’ll get us a health-care bill where doctors will make house calls via horse and buggy and take payment in live chickens… Ah yes; back to the good old days!…)

  • Mojo

    Those that backed Trump,(GOP) or voted for him, and or decided not to vote at all for what ever the reason. Are somewhat responsible for this “fool” being in the White House, which he called a dump!

  • Mojo

    *** Does it really take 2 to dance, even if the one leading has mace, clubs, shields & helmets, knives and other weapons? All that for a protest rally? And why did the local P/D wait so long to get more help before hand, with that size numbers of left vs right protesters?

  • Tom White

    Biased, distorted depiction. Hopefully the DoJ investigation will sort out and identify the factors and the fringe groups that organized the violence. Both camps came prepared for a battle. This HBO distorted depiction would have us believe the ‘counter-protesters’ were innocent martyrs.

    • Ron Mackey

      Tom White, I’m so glad that you can now come out of the closet and not have to wear your hood. I’m glad that we can see that you support neo Nazis and KKK wearing and carrying their swastika and their Confederate like Donald Trump. The flyers of this protest was to united the alt white to take back their country from the Jews and blacks and Trump pat them on their back.

      • Tom White

        Ron Mackey, thanks for reminding me about my hood. I need to pick it up at the cleaners so I have it ready for the next rally. Hey,I just applied for a KKK VISA 5% cash-back card. What a deal!

    *** 8-months in office and other than take complete credit for some left-over Obama Admin. Work on Wall St. & the economy. Trump has had nothing but some political proposals in the White House that have gone no-where in the House nor Senate. As usual he talks a good con-game about ideas that have yet to go any where! He’s had more melt downs and continued negative press than any other pass president in their first year in office. ***

  • Mojo

    It’s in the history archives that Fred Trump, Donald’s father was arrested in Queens 1927 at a KKK march of a 1,000 klan members.

    Also, who goes to a civil protest rally over a statue with sticks, helmets, uniforms, mace, knives & other weapons. March with torches chanting white power threw a univ. campus where no one was a student! And per independent reporters the Nat’s. White Party & the rest of the racists started and provoted the fights with the other protesters.

    BY RICH LOWRY
    Robert E. Lee wasn’t a Nazi, and surely would have had no sympathy for the white supremacist goons who made his statue a rallying point in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.

    That doesn’t change the fact that his statue is now associated with a campaign of racist violence against the picturesque town where Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia. The statue of Lee was already slated for removal by the city, but the Battle of Charlottesville should be an inflection point in the broader debate over Confederate statuary.
    The monuments should go. Some of them simply should be trashed; others transmitted to museums, battlefields and cemeteries. The heroism and losses of Confederate soldiers should be commemorated, but not in everyday public spaces where the monuments are flashpoints in poisonous racial contention, with white nationalists often mustering in their defense.

    Some discrimination is in order. There’s no reason to honor Jefferson Davis, the blessedly incompetent president of the Confederacy. New Orleans just sent a statue of him to storage — good riddance. Amazingly enough, Baltimore has a statue of Chief Justice Roger Taney, the author of the monstrous Dred Scott decision that helped precipitate the war. A city commission has, rightly, recommended its destruction.

  • Mojo

    History should be preserved, but statues of rebels that fought to keep slavery alive should not be on gov. Property.

  • Ron Mackey

    Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War and noted reluctant secessionist, wrote in his 1881 apologia The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government:
    “My pride is that that flag shall not set between contending brothers; and that, when it shall no longer be the common flag of the country, it shall be folded up and laid away like a vesture no longer used.”

  • Mojo

    *** Trump is making it close to impossible to get any political support of his major campaign proposals to the house & senate for study and bill’s writing. When you actually look at the political facts, not the fake Trump Admin. B/S; on the fence supporters will come to understand that Trump & his Admin. are responsible for very little or nothing @ all of the GOP or campaign promises made to their supporters. The last 8-months @ the White House with the new Admin. has produced nothing but chaos & mass confusion, like on local day-time T.V “soap opera” stories, where most of the main characters are always getting into negative situations & then lying about it after their exposed! *** Fake Trump ***
