Republicans Demand Trump Call Charlottesville Murder A ‘Terror Attack’


Today was a dark day in the American South as white supremacists rallied in Charlottesville, VA, resulting in a 32-year old woman’s death in a vehicle-related homicide with a white supremacist protester at the wheel. Republicans such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), stepped up to mentor the deflector-in-chief on how to react:

Trump, who was an outspoken critic of former President Obama’s refusal to use the phrase “radical Islamist terrorism” – until he visited Saudi Arabia as would-be-president – was considerably muted in his first response to the tragedy:

He really warmed up to the subject an hour later:

“Sad.” Here are some other things that have made Trump sad

Other Republican lawmakers, such as Sens. Cory Garnder, Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley, Tim Scott and Jeff Flake joined Rubio in criticizing Trump, but no doubt their comments will fall on deaf ears

The perpetrator has been identified as James Alex Fields, Jr., a white male who was charged with 2nd-degree murder from running down the woman, whose identity is being held pending notification of next-of-kin.

What’s next? For one, Sebastian Gorka, White House aide and one of Trump’s mealy-mouthed minions, who repudiates the very idea of right wing terrorism, will double down on his now obviously false assertion. For another, the Alt-Right will pin the outbreak of violence in Charlottesville on the Left, who turned out to counter the white supremacist demonstration.

In any case, it doesn’t matter what Trump says now; yet another chance to lead this country has passed.
