Joe launched his campaign using the divisive lie that President Trump called white supremacists and neo-nazis “very fine people.” Now he’s doubling-down, and the MSM isn’t pointing out his falsehoods. Biden lies
In an interview, this weekend with former Clinton administration communications director turned “serious” newsman and former Bubba Clinton press secretary, George Stephanopoulos, Joe Biden continued to push the false claim that President Trump has failed to condemn white supremacists. This is hypocritical because Biden never condemned the very real Antisemitism of his former boss, Barack Obama.
The truth is that President Donald Trump has repeatedly condemned racism and white supremacy, but somehow, Sleepy Joe has missed that.
Of course, he’s not alone. Many people have missed it. For some reason, that message gets buried in the news. It’s a complete mystery how that doesn’t seem to get any coverage.
So, President Trump uses Twitter to get the message out that he’s not a fan of racism of any kind.
The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!

Even when the Democratic Party controlled media is forced to cover it, it still gets ignored or buried.
Here are just a handful of headlines from CNBC, WaPo, and The New York Times.
Those are headlines, that’s easy to ignore. If only there was video evidence of President Trump in his own words denouncing and disavowing white nationalists, neo-nazis, the KKK, and David Duke for 17 years.
Oh, wait. There is.
President Trump has disavowed David Duke, white supremacy and the KKK for 17 YEARS!

Oh, sure. That’s 17 years of clips. But how about since he has become President?
During the presser in August 2017 about the conflict in Charlottesville, the comments that President Trump has made are always cut off right before he says that he condemns neo-nazis and white supremacists:
“The scandal of Charlottesville is not what President Trump said about neo-Nazis. It’s what the media said President Trump said about neo-Nazis. It’s a scandal because news reporting is supposed to be about gathering facts, not promoting an agenda.”
The President’ didn’t say the Neo-Nazis were very fine people.
So then, who were the “fine people?” Prager asked.
“He was referring to another group of Charlottesville demonstrators who came out that weekend—protestors who wanted the Robert E. Lee statue removed and protestors who wanted to keep the statue and restore the park’s original name.
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.”
Here’s the original Charlottesville Press conference:
Two days later, Trump condemned racism including the KKK, neo-nazis, and white supremacists. He called racists “repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans” and said, “We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator, we are equal under the law, and we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.” He then spoke about the tragic death of Heather Heyer who was hit by a car when a white supremacist drove into a crowd of protesters wanting the statue of Robert E. Lee removed.
And he’s kept doing it.
But don’t expect the Left to accept that. It would completely annihilate their narrative that Donald J. Trump is a virulent racist that needs to be defeated or he will destroy the country with his hate.
So, when you look at Biden and the Left’s refusal to accept the President’s statements denouncing racists while insisting that Trump is a racist — or at the very least stoking racism — who is it that’s really being divisive?
