On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough argued that President Trump has also become the president of the white nationalist movement. Scarborough said, “The United States is — we’ve — sometimes it’s been painful, but we’ve been in a constant, long march towards equality. And yesterday, it’s almost as if the president held up a stop sign and stopped history in its tracks.” He added, “[N]ot so strange is the fact that you had David Duke and other white nationalists actually praising the president of the United States yesterday for his words. And why not, he has now officially become the president of the white national — not only of America but also of the white nationalist movement. David Duke saying, thank you, Mr. President, for your ‘courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville[.]’ Well, David Duke, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, Klan members, they stand on one side, and apparently, the rest of America and the world stands on the other, Willie. The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear, not only morally — especially morally, but also politically, he has chosen the wrong side.” Scarborough concluded that lots of Trump’s voters didn’t want “a Duke

McCain, Romney, and Rubio Join the Republicans for Antifa Club


As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans – Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney – endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes.

CNN’s Acosta: Trump Espoused ‘Almost White Nationalist-Lite’ Views, ‘Needs to Go Back to History 101’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta stated that during his press conference earlier in the day, President Trump took views on Confederate monuments that were “almost white nationalist-lite,” and will be taken as a sign that the president “needs to go back to History 101.” Acosta said, “The president has an issue…when he is challenged on something that he feels deeply personal about. He doesn’t seem to have the ability to reign things in. … And president trump demonstrated here in the lobby of his own building. He couldn’t feel more at home than he could feel here at Trump Tower. He has talked about it time and time again, that this is his home. And yet, he felt very comfortable espousing some views that are — very, I mean, I would say they’re almost white nationalist-lite, in that, he was complaining, bemoaning the removal of Confederate statues across the country and asking whether or not George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are next.” He continued, “You could go to just about any history professor at any college in America, you could go to any history teacher at any high school in America, and

Chuck Todd: Trump Defended ‘The Cause of White Nationalists’ and Painted Them ‘As Victims’

On Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” host Chuck Todd argued that President Trump painted white nationalists as victims and defended their cause. Todd said, “Folks, what I just saw gave me the wrong kind of chills. Honestly, I’m a bit shaken from what I’ve just heard, and suspect it’s not just me. Moments ago, at Trump Tower, the president of the United States painted white nationalists and members of the alt-right as victims of what he described as club-wielding members of the alt-left. It was a chilling mix of whataboutism, false equivalence, and a total muddying of the waters, after one person was killed and at least 19 people were injured when members of the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists protested the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville. Where to begin? You might as well start with the president painting these white nationalist protesters as the real victims of a violent left-wing movement.” He added, after playing a clip of Trump’s presser, “Sure, when violence breaks out like what we saw this weekend, there’s usually more than enough blame to go around. But when was the last time you saw a president of the United States defend the
