Everyone has heard about the white supremacist nonsense in Virginia that left one person dead yesterday.
Giving these people attention gives them more credibility than they deserve but that seems to be inevitable at this point.
Trump came out with a great statement condemning everyone involved in the attack and you’d think that would be enough.
Nope. Democrats immediately criticized him for not being forceful enough and tried to connect him to the white supremacist movement which is obviously ridiculous and beyond the pale.
It wasn’t just Democrats. Even some Republicans took veiled swipes at him.
Here’s Cory Gardener.
Mr. President – we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism. https://t.co/PaPNiPPAoW

Did he not actually read what Trump said? Trump clearly condemned the attack. You’re arguing with him over word choice? A little petty don’t you think?
Some other GOP senators took similar tones.

We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. -OGH

Chuck Todd added his 2 cents…
There has been a distinct tone difference between what POTUS said and didn’t say vs many Senate GOPers who did call out the hate by name
— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) August 12, 2017
Obviously, Todd is implying that the President of the United States supports this movement which is nothing more than a disgusting smear.
Pretty low brow for those senators to pretend that Trump is the person to criticize at a time like this.
