Celebs React with Disgust to Trump Defending Neo-Nazis

People around the world are outraged by President Donald Trump‘s latest comments, in which he seemingly defended the actions of neo-nazis and white supremacists.

During a press conference on Tuesday (August 15), the President of the United States went back to his original stance on the events in Charlottesville, saying that “both sides” are to blame for the deadly violence at the rally.

“You also had some very fine people on both sides,” Trump said. “You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. The press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people but you also had troublemakers.”

Trump placed blame in the counter-protestors.

“What about the alt left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt right? Do they have any assemblage of guilt?” He said while making up the term “alt-left.” “What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.”

    Ignorant celebrats can’t stand to have those that THEY support blamed for anything. Over the past year and half, it has been the Left that has acted violently during protests…that has rioted…that has physically attacked those on the opposing side. Once again, these bigots created a situation that escalated into violence…and the violence began with THEM. I also love how the media and these celebrats push the idea that all people protesting were Nazis, etc. Funny how they don’t believe you should lump all Muslims together.

    He wasn’t defending the Neo Nazis he said other than them and the White nationalists there were good people on all sides there. There were people there for equality for everyone. There were good people there much like poor Heather Heyer and the other victims. Let’s hear the actual words instead of hearing what you want which is always hate.

  • Cooper

    this is just getting exhausting. I don’t need him to specifically say whose bad (kkk, white nationalist,etc.) like the liberals and celebs want I think it went without saying. I also don’t see the outrage in this statement. He specifically said they weren’t good people. ITs just the left trying to demonize everyone on the right. Let’s not pretend like Antifa is not a thing. You had ok idiots there and then their opponents showing up in lol swat gear. THose people and the torch weilders are all too blame for this. It’s like how the dems don’t want you judging muslims by one extremist. You can’t do that with the right either.

    In most other countries, what he said would be a non-issue.

    It was both sides. The Nazi’s destroyed monuments statues and cultures, now it’s Antifa and other racist groups.

    If you’re going to accuse the President of ‘seemingly defend(ing) the actions of neo-nazis and white supremacists,’ his words better back it up. Otherwise, you’re blatantly attempting to manipulate the sites visitors, and insulting their intelligence.

    “You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. The press has treated them absolutely unfairly”

    Key word is OTHER, he isn’t defending the nationalists/nazi’s .. these celebs just love spread propaganda.

    Wish we could take Trump, Natanayhu and all their fascist ilk and put them on a man made island of recycled garbage and call it ” Calamities Peak ”

    “Both sides” = We are all Palestinians now.

  • DEADP00L

    We destroyed Nazi monuments, statues and Nazi rule and existence.

    There are no more Nazi statues in Germany.
