This afternoon, the President of the United States went out of his way to immediately discard the minuscule goodwill he had earned by finally condemning white supremacists and neo-Nazis for the murder of a young leftist, Heather Heyer, during the Saturday hate rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Donald Trump took to Twitter to complain about how the “truly bad” fake news media wouldn’t give him a pass after he was pretty obviously strong-armed into making a definite statement after failing to do so in his first reaction to the violence by his supporters in Charlottesville.
Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied…truly bad people!

Legendary journalist Dan Rather took to Facebook this afternoon to call out the President for clearly having more vitriol for the free press than he does for actual Nazis.
