Trump's Charlottesville defense omits two key words

President Donald Trump called a majority of the mainstream American media dishonest, bad and a "lobbying tool" for allegedly giving a platform to hate groups after the violence at a white supremacist rally in Virginia.

Then, he lambasted the "weak, weak people" allowing Confederate statues to be removed around the country accusing them of trying to take away "our culture" and "our history", Trump said.

On Wednesday, Trump posted on Twitter: "Memorial service today for lovely and incredible Heather Heyer, a truly special young woman. So foolish! Also.the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!"

Perhaps the most repugnant thing in Trump's tweets is his mention of "culture" as a reason why Confederate statues should stay up.

"Good people can go to Charlottesville", said Michelle Piercy, a night shift worker at a Wichita, Kan., retirement home, who drove all night with a conservative group that opposed the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Everyone can watch the video of Trump's Tuesday afternoon temper tantrum press conference inside Trump Tower, or they can read the transcript. In an interview with journalist Robert Kuttner of The American Prospect, published Wednesday, Bannon is quoted as saying: "The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got 'em. There's a lack of leadership on one side of Pennsylvania Avenue", he said on "Fox News Sunday".

Yeah, white supremacists and LGBTQ folk, throw 'em in a bag like Skittles, shake 'em up and dump 'em out, and you can't tell one from the other.

Chief of staff John Kelly: More than a dozen sources told the Washington Post that Kelly is deeply frustrated with the president's conduct.

A very small portion of registered voters agrees with President Donald Trump's comments that "many sides" contributed to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., according to a poll released Wednesday morning. That's the biggest lie of all, which disgusted nearly everybody but former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, who immediately thanked Trump "for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville".

The president took aim at two fellow Republican senators, Lindsey Graham of SC and Jeff Flake of Arizona, in a series of tweets. "I'm sorry. After what he said about my child". Kelli Ward. "Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake", Trump tweeted.

He was referring to Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed when she was struck by a vehicle driven into the crowd. He just can't forget his election trouncing.

Along with repealing Obamacare, Trump had promised tax reform and a $1 trillion plan to improve the country's infrastructure. It was of world-historical significance until it disappeared overnight, succeeded by a new opportunity for Trump-hatred.

Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, denounced bigotry and racism on his Facebook page a day after the Charlottesville violence, but at the same time, he also took aim at politicians who tried to connect Trump to that turmoil.
