Everyone in America is concerned about the murderous terrorist attack in Charlottesville, VA, except President Trump. He knows his white nationalist base is untouchable because that’s all he is. Plus, he’s too busy golfing at his Bedminster, NJ golf club in the midst of his 17-day vacation.
Instead of issuing a genuine response, Trump had the nerve to lie about working and celebrating his administration’s so-called accomplishments before acknowledging Charlottesville with one word.
“Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!”

What’s sad is the fact that the president is using Twitter to address a city that just had to issue a state of emergency. A white supremacist plowed into protesters with his car, and at least one person has been confirmed dead.
The terrorist attack occurred after police dispersed white nationalists for their rally against the removal of a Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue.
Americans are more disgusted than ever with their president:
Control your supporters!

SAD? Trump nationalist agenda & white supremacist advisors are what is SAD. Your refusal to call this white supremacy is SAD. This is ON YOU

They're doing it for you, Donald. You're not sad, this is what you wanted. pic.twitter.com/ymGCQ7ijBy

So… your full condemnation of people marching IN YOUR NAME is "but Charlottesville sad!"

How about denouncing these #deplorable white nationalists instead of fostering the movement?

Why aren't you denouncing the KKK, Mr. President? Is it ok for them to rant against Jews and minorities with torches in hand?

What is sad is how hard it is for you to denounce the actions of Nazis.

Charlottesville isn't "sad," it's a despicable reflection of the hate and intolerance that your administration normalizes & even embraces.

Sad doesn’t even begin to describe the repugnant demonstration of hate in Charlottesville. This is not a serious response.
