Trump’s first statement on Saturday blamed “many sides” for the violence, which included the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer, but he followed up Monday by condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Yet a day later, Trump reiterated his original stance.
“I do think there’s blame on both sides,” he said Tuesday. “You look at both sides, I think there’s blame on both sides. I have no doubt about it and you have no doubt about it either. … You had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
According to Leftist filmmaker and hardcore anti-Trump zealot , Michael Moore, supporters of President Donald Trump are all racists. Appearing on CNN for an interview with Don Lemon on Tuesday, Moore ripped Trump for his “both sides” comments regarding the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and also criticized those who still stand behind him.
“If you vote for a racist, what are you then? Because it sure sounds like racism to me,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon in a late-night interview on Tuesday. “He’s absolutely a racist,” Moore said of Trump.
Moore then stated that Americans who voted for Trump should look at themselves in the mirror and decided whether they want to continue to enable the president, concluding that if they do, they are racists.Moore said it’s “absolutely criminal to stand behind the people who killed Heather Heyer” and likened those who continue to support Trump to rape enablers. When Lemon told Moore that he would receive criticism for the “uncomfortable comparison,” Moore responded, “I hope I do. I’ve had it.”
“Anybody who votes for and supports a racist is a racist. You are culpable, white America. I’m sorry, but there is redemption for you.”
Moore has two performances of his Broadway show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” scheduled for Aug. 16, starting with the afternoon matinee. It’s not yet clear whether those shows will include any kind of political actions.
