Trump Condemns Nazi Rally: Let’s Come Together

After hours of demands on social media and yes, even on Fox News, minutes ago Trump issued a condemnation of the Nazi rally held in Virginia today, where white supremacists interspersed vile chants against gays, blacks, and Jews with chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”

Few will be satisfied with a vague tweeted condemnation of today’s hate rally and some have noted that Trump failed to name or hashtag the event, as even his wife has done. In fact, some extremists on Twitter are already claiming that Trump’s message is intended for the counter-protesters.

  • vorpal 😼
  • Dramphooey

    It is a sad time in our nation when a President chooses his words carefully in denouncing Nazis.

  • Floyd

    It took him until 1:19 PM today to condemn it? Even Melania was before that. Disgusting

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    there seems to be a 2nd tweet from trumputin….and alex witt wants its verified first before she airs it
    as she talks with the head of the rethug party of virginia who actually brought up the shooting in DC as a false equivalency that liberals are just as violent

  • Floyd

    And let’s not forget the fact that they were also yelling “FUCK YOU FAGGOTS”. in addition to chanting Trump’s name.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Yeah, that was rather difficult to miss. But hey, they’re not really homophobic, so says Richard Spencer. /s

    • Dramphooey

      I really hope some of those Trump loving gays showed up. I hope they broke out in a cold sweat standing in the crowd with those people.

  • SoCalGal20
    • Dramphooey

      Please have video.

      • SoCalGal20

        Maybe it was on a livestream but yes, video would be awesome.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    He screams at other countries and these pieces of shit he send flowery prose. Two words…Fuck Him!

    • Dramphooey

      This. How about some fire and fury directed at Nazis? It’s an American tradition!

      • David Walker

        It might lose votes come 2020. Assuming it’s still around.

    • Todd20036

      HELL NO!!

  • Sam_Handwich
    • crewman

      People of color, LGBT, immigrants: We want equal rights and dignity that every American deserves.
      White nationalists: We want you dead.
      Trump: Let’s compromise.

      • Lizard

        “Lets make a deal!”

      • Todd20036

        Melanie actually had a more forceful tweet than Trump

        Trump is ok with Nazi rallies. Hell did you see his campaign rallies?

        • Lizard

          Or his speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree…

  • Tulle Christensen

    It is hard to come together as one when you do not allow the non-white people into the room

  • SoCalGal20

    The Chair of the VA Republican Party is a douche and Alex Witt is a terrible interviewer.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      i am in 100% agreement

    • joe ho

      Yep. She let him get away with the false equivalence stupidity that brought us Trump.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        oh that fucking infuriated me. and alex just sat there like a robot

      • Ninja0980

        Yup, and failed to bring up the fact the Republican representative for this district met with the Nazi folks before the march.

    • Gustav2

      All she had to say was:

      “Sir, these Fascists voted for Trump, the AntiFa voted for Stein.”

      • SoCalGal20

        All she had to say was that the Nazis had Trump chats and where were wearing MAGA hats.

  • Blake J Butler

    FSOTUS, and GOTUS the shitstain on americas underwear.

    Nobody is getting a pat on the back or a gold star because neither of them fucking care about what is happening, the NAZI’s are running amok.

    He knows his base consists of white supremacists and Klan members.

  • GayOldLady

    To Richard Spencer: You cannot claim you “came in peace” when you brought clubs, bats, sticks, shields and an armed militia. YOU BASTARD!!!!!!

    • Blake J Butler

      And torches, it’s a mob looking to inflict violence not looking to play a didgeridoo and roast marshmallows and weenies.

      • I choo-choo-choose you

        True, although they look like they might have raided a garden party with those tiki torches.

        • Blake J Butler

          They aren’t that resourceful. And going down to lowes or home depot and buy out the tiki torches sounds more better for them than actually having better torches.

        • Nic Peterson

          They might have stolen those torches from my yard.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        And the police did not intervene for a while and let skirmishes and violence break out as they mostly stood by. What sane police force allows people to come to a rally with riot shields, brass knuckles, sticks and bats and LETS them continue into a large crowd?

    • Dramphooey
      • GayOldLady

        Tiki torches are for a Luau, not a White Supremacist/Nazi rally.

      And Rosie O’Donnel. And Kristen Stewart. But at least he’s trying with covfefe.

      • GayOldLady

        He was tough on Rosie because she did a killer impersonation of him on LIVE TV and she’s a lesbian. He was tough on Kristen because she turned him down flat and she’s a lesbian.

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          Kstew is bi. We claim her. She may have done some shitty vampire films (Oh boy! bi paydirt) but she pisses him off so hey, proud to align with her.

          • GayOldLady

            The moral of the story still remains, Don’t mess with the LGBT community. πŸ™‚ We will mess you up in our own special way!

          • PickyPecker

            And she did a damned good job at it too!!

          • GayOldLady

            I could watch her impersonate trump a thousand times and laugh every time.

          • thatotherjean

            Was she ever invited on SNL to impersonate Bannon? Judging by the photo I saw when she first offered to do that, she’d be spectacular!

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Hear! Hear!

            And Rosie was way too kind in that impersonation.

        • jimbo65

          I laughed my ass off when I first saw her impression of him on The View. It was so spot on and really got under his skin.

    • JCF

      Thank you, Clea! [Clea is Family, I’m sure most of you know.]

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    No, there is no ‘coming together’ with racists and fascists who are shouting ‘Heil Hitler’ and ‘Heil Trump.’ We fight them, defeat them and win.

    • OdieDenCO

      agree! that is a part of the human psych that needs to evolve out of the species.

  • boobert

    So he’s condemning the violence against the white supremacist ? That’s a very vague statement.

    • JCF

      If it can be seen that way (by the Deplorables), it certainly WILL.

  • Rebecca Gardner
    • SoCalGal20

      And the douchebag chair of the VA GOP tried to claim they’re not Republicans and Alex Witt of MSNBC let him get away with it!

      • Rebecca Gardner

        Listening to that guy really pissed me off.

      • Taylor Bixler

        The leader of the rally campaigned for Cory Steward during the GOP primary and has met with the local rep, also a republican.

        • SoCalGal20

      Other than manly physical contact, why are they holding their hands on the shoulders of the guys in front of them?

      • GayOldLady

        Must be a holdover from School Crossing Guard days.

  • Nowhereman

    Trump didn’t write that.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      It’s too coherent and doesn’t boast enough about his popularity.

    • Dramphooey

      It was so weak tea I didn’t really think about it but you’re right; it is not his style at all.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      I’m spotting words with more than one syllable and no mention of the terms “Sad!” “Loser” or even any ratings.

      No way he wrote that.

      • Robincho

        Of course he didn’t. His writing skills are the equivalent of his reading skills — i.e., bupkis….

        • David Walker

          It’s difficult to tweet when you’re concentrating on your putter.

    • Cuberly

      Yep.

    • Lizard

      Sad when a ghostwriter has to consider making the tweet seem more “authentic” by removing apostrophes.

  • Gustav2

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    OT: I so want Mueller to go to town on this asshole. Below is a profile of what Mueller is like before he hit it big.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/when-robert-muellers-only-case-was-a-childs-murder

    “She has no doubt that for all the Trumpian craziness and dizzy speculation on cable TV news, Mueller is working the Russian-meddling case with the same steady, careful, focused diligence as he did with her daughter’s case. The innocent should be only glad.

    Morris-Murdock offers a high compliment to the Marine who was once decorated for his courage and devotion to duty.β€œHe goes beyond the call of duty,” she says.

  • JCF

    [I almost never say this]

    Joe, you are WRONG. Drumpf is condemning UNSPECIFIED “hate” and “violence”. He did NOT condemn the Nazi rally—much less the racism/racists that caused it.

    [Meanwhile: it’s now been one WEEK since the mosque bombing in Minnesota (nothing unspecified about that!), and Drumpf has said Zilch about it!]

    • Cuberly

      My reaction upon reading Donnie’s tweet was….uh….that’s a little generic there Donnie.

      It’s glaring in what it’s omitting.

    • Dagoril

      I’d go even further, and say that Drumpf is telling liberals to be nicer to his Nazis.

      And Trump and Melanoma will both take credit for it.

  • Cuberly

    That’s quite a generic plea their Donnie. Hell, even Paul Ryan & Pence were more forceful in their denouncements.

    Gorka has direct ties with white nationalists in EU. Bannon wants to burn the state to the ground. Like it or not, Donnie-boy owns this.

    Yeah, sure–Mr. “Us vs. Them” is suddenly in favor of peace and harmony.

Fake news! Fake President!

  • Gigi

    It’s a tepid response to be sure but only a brain dead white supremacist could think “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for” = support for their cause.

    • Tulle Christensen

      They just misread condemn as commend

    • -M-

      Uh, that would be all of them.

      He doesn’t say hate has no place in America, just violence without placing blame for it anywhere and the Nazis will interpret that to mean the ‘violence’ of standing up against them. And his call for unity and coming together as one are as open to fascist interpretation as those for law and order.

  • Cuberly

    Ok, I broke down and am watching this on TV. One thing that’s grating on my nerves is the talking-heads attempt to spin the nationalists as reacting to lack of economic opportunity as being part of the reason they’re embracing Trump and white nationalism.

      One big difference between what happened in the 60s and now is that in the 60s the government was the good guys, but today they stand with the klansmen. Today, MLK would be smeared as a terrorist; JFK wouldn’t stand a chance of election on a promise to keep religion out of government; LBJ would have been driven out of office by a primary challenge years ago; and instead of George Wallace blocking children at a schoolhouse door it would be the president or one of his flying monkeys. The situation today is much worse.

    Richard Spencer: “We came in peace.”
    So what were the gun wielding militiamen doing? Why was a section of the procession carrying what looked like pool cues? I don’t recall seeing a pool table anywhere.
    For a peaceful lot they sure were tooled up for something rather different.

    I just can’t believe what this POS is saying! Can or should an oppressed person come together with their oppressor(s)? Is he for real?
