You had one side of neo-Nazis wearing Adolph Hitler T-shirts, the white supremacists screaming obscenities at the African American community walking down the streets. They came armed.
“There’s a time in your presidency when you need to show moral leadership and you need to stand and send a message to the world. He failed that day.” – Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, speaking this morning on CNN.
