CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday reprimanded President Donald Trump for multiplying down on his case that there were “fine individuals on the two sides” at the vicious “Join the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.
The host of “Anderson Cooper 360°” utilized film from the dangerous rally to feature how it wasn’t generally about individuals challenging the expulsion of the Robert E. Lee statue in the city, as Trump again asserted before in the day, and rather was a social affair of white patriots and neo-Nazis.
“How many fine individuals touched base with battle boots and clubs and grabbed burns and recited Nazi mottos?” asked Cooper. “That is the issue. Also, hostile to Semitic ones too? What number of fine individuals who you know would do that?”
“How many fine individuals would glance around at the Nazis and the skinheads that they were walking with and state, ‘You realize what, better believe it, these are actually the fine individuals I need to walk with and convey this consuming light with,'” Cooper proceeded. “What do Nazi mottos and against Jewish serenades have to do with the statue of Robert E. Lee?”
Trump was “attempting to gaslight us, once more” with his endeavor to turn the account on the rally, he included, by “requesting that we think something in spite of what you and I and everyone can witness for ourselves and hear with our very own ears.”
