Melania Trump Condemns “Hateful” Nazi Rally

Minutes ago Melania Trump followed House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican National Committee chairperson Ronna Romney McDaniel in condemning today’s Nazi rally in Charlotteville, Virginia, where thousands of white supremacist Trump supporters have clashed with riot police and counter-protesters.

The president himself has thus far remained glaringly silent. The scene, at the moment, is relatively calm after Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency and Virginia state police declared the rally to be an unlawful assembly.

  • Treant

    OK, credit where credit is due. I don’t believe she wrote it without help, and it should have been done thirty minutes ago, but at least she put it out there.

    • BobSF_94117

      Meh. It puts both positions on equal footing. Whoever wrote it for her understands that. It’s despicable.

    • GayOldLady

      I don’t want to hear a damned word from Melania. She is a beneficiary of the evilness that DJT has rained down upon us.

    • kareemachan

      She did not do it. An employee did it. The thought that she would actually do something like this is ludicrous.

      • stuckinthewoods

        Too sensible. She must have plagiarized if from Michelle.

    • TimCA

      It was a weak, vapid, meaningless statement meant to be such. It wasn’t worth the electricity it took to send it.

    • CanuckDon

      It’s a safe tweet. It didn’t come from their messiah…it came from his “out-of-control” wife.

      • Goodboy

        Yeah, everyone should hate less. Great. Moving on.

  • JWC

    sorry poor cell reception on the 9th

  • Do Something Nice

    Yeah, fuck you all. You and your party tolerated and sometimes encouraged these types of people to get votes.

    The Republican party and those on the right are just too comfortable around racists, sexists, homophobes and xenophobes.

      Why isn’t she at home getting ridden by her son? Did they have a falling out?

    • Sporkfighter

      To be fair, the cesspond has always been there. The GOP chose to stir it up rather than clean it up, and Trump jumped on a boogie board to ride the waves rather than walk away from the stinking mess.

    • fahvel

      perfectly said vielle dame, et gay aussi. Super. The entire clan that is attached to the pres should be erased and sent far far away where the only tweets come from birds – damn, I am sorry birds. You need not see the things unless you poop on the head nest he uses to trap baby birds like melania.

  • Bluto

    Wake the fuck up & see what your husband is doing, you vapid twit.

  • Lazycrockett

    Sending a tweet is just so lame. Public officials need to get on the airwaves and hold Pressers denouncing this shit. 140 characters isnt enough.

    • GayOldLady

      10,140 characters isn’t enough. DJT turned these creatures from hell loose on America and he should be held accountable along with everyone in the GOP who has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to Trumpism.

      You are so right on a couple of ways in looking at your statement, “fucking idiot”

  • Cerberus

    Yeah, no. That’s not a condemnation of the bigots, that’s a coded condemnation of the counter-protestors. Melania is just as deep with the fascists as the rest of them.

        Gurl, she’s been up to her armpits in caviar and servants since she stepped off that boat.

        For her it was either a life of softcore porn in some backwater country where the electric power goes off at 10 pm, or Donald Trump with his penthouses and gifts of diamond bracelets.

        • GayOldLady

          I didn’t mean bigly trouble financially, I meant bigly trouble morally and emotionally. Whoever marries for money earns every penny of it. The same alligators that will eat Trump will devour her too.

            Mussolini was a bad choice for a boyfriend. Very bad.

            I’ve made some bad choices in boyfriends in my day, but never that bad.

          • GayOldLady

            Mussolini was much more than a bad choice of boyfriends, he was a tyrant, a crook, a fascist dictator a mass murderer and any man or woman who slides between the sheets with pure evil is destined to reap the whirlwind of that choice.

    • GayOldLady

      Hitler was a fascist and the KKK were/are racists. The GOP co-opted the KKK and racism to win the South. The South, the KKK, White Nationalists and the modern Nazi movement are basically a wholly owned subsidiary of the GOP.

    • greenmanTN

      Without offending what is, let’s face it, his real base.

  • 2patricius2

    It occurs to me that the reason Drumpf has not condemned the violence, is that he has to deal with Bannon, and has to figure out how he can say anything about this without alienating his base base. So he sends Melania out to tweet something as a way of sending out a double message – one of assurance to his base base and Bannon, and one to send out a phony message to others that he really is against the violence.

    I think he has a press conference scheduled for today. We will see what lies he spouts when he answers questions, if he really does have the press conference.

    Of course the problem is that Drumpf really is himself a white nationalist, and these are his people. If he were not, he would not have filled his administration with such people.

    A mosque in Minnesota called. It wants to know if you have positively confirmed that these are indeed Nazi messengers.

    So, Melania, what’s your opinion about crowds that gather specifically to yell “Faggot,” give Nazi salutes, fly the confederate flag, and attack Jewish folks? What’s your plan to stop that from happening again?

    You don’t have one? Then shut up. You’re useless.

  • -M-

    No, Joe. It is not at all clear there that she did. She may have condemned violence and arguably hate but she was silent about who was responsible for them.

  • Mike

    Neither Trump nor Melania condemned the nazis. Both of them coyly condemned only the “hate and violence.” They were thinking of the anti-nazi protesters as the haters, not their loyal base of scumbag white supremacists. I know it, you know it, and the American people know it.
