Trump Goes Soft on Neo-Nazis Again: 'There's Blame on Both Sides'

Trump reminds us who he really is.

Trump on Charlottesville: "I think there's blame on both sides, and I have no doubt about it, & you don't have any doubt about it either."

A bloated, blabbering dolt gave a speech about so-called "infrastructure" from Trump Tower Tuesday. Trump, just one day removed from his latest attempt at making a fitting statement on the Charlottesville terrorist attack, also faced questions about neo-Nazis and his previous hesitance to outright condemn them.

"Are you putting what you're calling the alt-left & white supremacists on same moral plane?"
"I'm not putting anybody on a moral plane."

Taking questions after he managed to string some sentences together, Trump essentially provided the sequel to his widely panned remarks from this weekend about there being "violence on many sides." In fact, he took the preposterousness even further.

"You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people -- on both sides," Pres. Trump says.

"I think there's blame on both sides," he said. "You look at both sides, I think there's blame on both sides. I have no doubt about it." Trump added that he thought there were "very fine people on both sides." To be clear, one "side" was literally this:

Peter Cvjetanovic, a white nationalist, is upset that this photo of him has gone viral. So be nice: dont retweet this tweet 1000s of times.

Later, Trump tried to backpedal on his backpedaling with something only loosely comprehensible about condemning neo-Nazis. Then, without fail, he backpedaled on the backpedaling of his own backpedaling. "There are two sides to a story," he said. "I thought what took place was a horrible moment to our country, but there are two sides to a story." Trump also confirmed that he hasn't yet reached out to the family of Heather Heyer, who was killed during the Charlottesville attack.

But, hey, Trump's a busy guy. He's been all tied up with retweeting Pizzagate conspiracy theorists and sharing memes depicting CNN reporters being hit by trains.
