Has this info been posted?

I had heard Trump speaking live about the Charlottesville riots and couldn't understand why some people were upset. Someone made a boo boo? I'd hate to be him or her! Oops!

That slip makes no change in the actual argument. It was not that trump was being accused of calling himself part of the alt-right. It was that trump equated the morality of the alt-right to that of the supposed alt-left.

Once again, the right should stop lying to try to make points?

Well since I watched the event live I wasn't influenced by a typo in a transcript. My rage towards Trump comes from what he himself has said or tweeted.

Trump tried to escape contoversy by not mentioning the hate groups from the left and right that were involved in and escalated the melee that caused the death of an innocent woman.


The hate groups were mixed in with legitimate protestors for keeping or removing confed statuary. The good people Trump referenced were the legitimate, non violent protestors not affiliated with the KKK, antifa or BLM, etc.


It is happenstance an innocent person was killed by one group over the other, considering the atmosphere BLM has created and the resultant death of police officers and KKK or white supremists and their associated violence.


The media and dems and swamp dwelling repubs without a spine, chose to accept the media's interpretation.


Trump was correct, however, in his off script remarks and argumentative confrontation he was not a clear as he could be. Though an intelligent listener would have easily known what he meant. Unfotrunately the media will take anything trump says and twist it to fit their false narrative. As for the repubs, they abandoned trump and deserve no return trip to DC next election. To see the spinelessnes of repubs is most discouraging, though second to a media propaganda machine spreading the soicalist democrats hate and fear mongering campaign.

I thought it was caused by Nazis marching in the streets?

Did you notice how the Boston event was relatively peaceful except for a few incidents where the Alt Left's paramilitary group Antifa hurled bottles of urine and other objects at the cops? The police chief was talking about it today. The mayor and governor of VA had been warned but ignored those warnings of violence and will be investigated. You can see the cops direct the Neo Nazis into the awaiting Antifa, ensuring violence. Preplanned.
