Remember when President Trump was flogged by the Democrats and their allies in the media for a portion of his speech they extracted to fool people into thinking he was supporting white nationalists in the Charlottesville, NC “Unite the Right” rally, after he said there were some “very fine people from both sides” at the protest?
President Trump was, in fact, referring to the people who were there to protest against the planned removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
This is what President Trump said about those peaceful protestors: “You also had some very fine people on both sides. . . . You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of—to them—a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”
A few moments later, in case there would be any misunderstanding, he makes his meaning even more explicit. “…I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They should be condemned totally.”
Today, during a segment on “The View,” chief Democrat propagandist, Joy Behar applauded a recent statement by white nationalist Richard Spencer, where he joined Democrats in denouncing Trump. Behar called Spencer’s decision to condemn Trump, “good news!”
From the Daily Beast – Following Iran’s missile attacks on two Iraqi military bases housing American troops on Tuesday evening, Spencer—who helped organize the deadly white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville—took to Twitter to declare: “I deeply regret voting for and promoting Donald Trump in 2016.”
Moments before Trump told the nation that they should be “extremely grateful” that Iran “appears to be standing down,” The View hosts discussed public reactions to Tuesday night’s strikes, which Iran said was in retaliation for Trump killing top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
“This is a tiny thing that I noticed,” she continued. “Do you remember Richard Spencer? He’s basically the organizer of Unite the Right, the white-nationalist group that was marching in Charlottesville and was all-in for Trump. Not anymore!”
Joy read the quote from Spencer’s tweet to the audience, “I deeply regret voting for and promoting Donald Trump in 2016.” “Oh, my gosh,” gasped co-host Abbey Huntsman, asking, “Do you know why?” as the audience cheered. “It’s like I said yesterday,” Joy gleefully told her far-left co-hosts, “Trump ran on not invading and being a warmonger.”

CNN political commentator, Steve Cortes did a brilliant job of revealing how the media lied about what President Trump actually said about the presidential press conference, where he addressed the Charlottesville riots:
