Breitbart Slams Trump For “Hate Speech” Retweets

InfoWars and Breitbart turn on Trump in the same day.

From Breitbart senior editor Joel Pollak:

Even without knowing more about [Jayda] Fransen or Britain First, the president was wrong to retweet what she had posted. There is no way of knowing whether the videos are authentic, and — most important — when and where they were made.

That is not only provocative, but risky, as it encourages prejudice and hatred and could also provoke retaliation. At best, the tweets are sloppy. At worst, they are hate speech — not illegal, but not what an American leader should condone.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Trump’s tweets by arguing that “these are real threats that we have to talk about.” That is certainly true, but there are more reputable sources to cite, and there are better ways to talk about it than to promote videos that blur the line between the innocent and the guilty.

At the link above you’ll see that Breitbart commenters are furious, calling Pollak a “cuck” and a “RINO” and all the other usual epithets.
