The First Daughter -- who also has an active policy-making role in the White House -- decided that a day later would be a good time to make a public comment about the disgusting white supremacy we've all witnessed this weekend.

Every single Washington insider reports that you -- more than anybody -- has your father Donald Trump's ear on policy issues and important things concerning the country. So when the fuck are you going to use your influence on him? Do you even WANT to?? Because yesterday -- when your Dad came up with his "on many sides" bullshit -- might have been the perfect time to tell him that white supremacy and neo-Nazis have no place in society. Don't tell that to Twitter. We already know. Tell your father!!!

Donald Trump Blames The "Crooked Media" For America"s Social & Political Divide While Defending His Charlottesville Response!

When it comes to violent rallies that result in the death of an anti-white supremacy activist, Donald Trump likes to blame "both sides." But when he's talking about the giant divide of the country he runs, the president knows only one entity is at fault: the crooked media! Video: Trump Supporters Are Creepin' In AHS: Cult Trailer! POTUS [...] When it comes to violent rallies that result in the death of an anti-white supremacy activist, Donald Trump likes to blame "both sides." But when he's talking about the giant divide of the country he runs, the president knows only one entity is at fault: the crooked media! Video: Trump Supporters Are Creepin' In AHS: Cult Trailer! POTUS launched a new attack on the "sick people" in the media at a campaign-style rally on Tuesday night, labeling it as "the source of the division in our country." He told a pumped up crowd in Phoenix, Arizona: "These are sick people. If you wanted to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media." The rant came as Trump defended his response to the deadly Charlottesville rally earlier this month, which began in protest of the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Related: Wife Of U.S. Treasury Secretary Ices IG Haters! Unsurprisingly -- and kind of impressively, tbh -- the president divided his supporters further from the other side in the same breath he blamed the media for the social and political divide, hissing: "It's time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions and yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage." Trump then spoke on how the media reacted to his responses to Charlottesville. After reading a version of his initial statement that left out the part that faulted "many sides" for the violence, he said: "They don't report the facts. Just like they don't want to report that I spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry and violence and strongly condemned the neo-nazis, the white supremacists and the KKK. I openly called for unity, healing and love and they know it because they were all there." To his credit, he did condemn the white supremacist groups -- after commenting that some "very fine people" were among the neo-Nazis and KKK protesting the removal of the Confederate leader. Related: Trump Supporters Cancel 37 Rallies Across The Country! The president faced criticism from the media and political leaders -- both Democrats and Republicans -- over his initial response to the violence. But in Trump's eyes, it was only his third statement on the incident that mattered. He complained: "I hit 'em with neo-Nazi. I hit 'em with everything. I got the white supremacist, the neo-Nazi. I got 'em all in there. Let's see. KKK? We have KKK. I got 'em all. So they're having a hard time. So what did they say, right? 'It should have been sooner; he's a racist.'" The crowd at the Phoenix Convention Center seemed to agree, as some were reported to yell out profanities and spit out insults at reporters during the rally. But, you know, this one-sided lib-trash post is what's dividing the country........»»

Jon Stewart Gives History Lesson On Nazis, Jews Controlling The Media, & "Fuckface" Trump In Surprise Standup Set!

With the rise of Nazis and a president who seemingly encourages them, Jon Stewart is one voice we wish was still on TV.

Thankfully, the comedian still got to weigh in on Donald Trump's widely-scorned reaction to the deadly Charlottesville rally during a guest appearance at Dave Chappelle's stand-up show at Radio City Music Hall. Video: Tina Fey Lays Into Trump & Nazis On SNL's Summer Weekend Update! Among those in the crowd surprised by the former Comedy Central was New York Times culture reporter Sopan Deb, who took to Twitter to transcribe Stewart's set. Speaking on the white supremacist rally last weekend, Stewart's complaint "wasn't so much that there were Nazis," but instead "the reaction by certain presidents." He explained: "There are two sides? Motherfucker? Two sides?! I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers." Talking it back to History 101, the 54-year-old joked that America used to be with the Allied powers, but it looks like Trump signed a treaty that the rest of us don't know about. While Stewart doesn't think every Trump supporter is a Nazi, he made it clear that "everybody who is a Nazi sure does seem to like him." Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger Has A Message To Trump & Neo-Nazis Stewart then remembered his Twitter war with Trump, where the future president mocked him for changing his name from Jonathan Leibowitz -- which the comedian responded to by joking that Trump's name used to be "Fuckface Von Clownstick." Nice! But it wasn't all schoolyard name calling -- Stewart spoke on the biggest alt-right "trope" that Jews control the media, explaining: "Basically it goes back to an old white supremacist trope which is 'Jews amongst us.' [Trump] was signaling to the underworld that Jews are amongst us. Honestly, if Jews controlled the media why wasn't I on a network?" He got you there, far right! Stewart also ripped on white supremacists for claiming they are the master race, saying: "If you think you're the master race, how come we're all kicking your ass so easily? Why aren't the Olympics dominated by you? What do you still have left? Golf and tennis? Maybe, maybe. And even then, the first black people you came across, you're like 'We can't play this game anymore.' Williams sisters, Tiger Woods." Though before his set was over, Stewart made sure to defend the other side, quipping: "In the president's defense, he is a terrible person." Oh, how we miss this feisty Jewish gem!

Specifically, the Celebrity Apprentice alum dragged POTUS for not taking a stronger stance against racism following the tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia. Related: Tina Fey Lays Into Trump & Nazis! ICYMI, one woman died and 19 others were injured on Saturday after a car rammed into counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally. Following the violence, the Commander-In-Chief left many baffled when he defended that "both sides" were to blame for the fatal incident. Thus Arnold, who has been a vocal critic of Trump's administration, felt the need to remind Donnie that it's his "moral responsibility" as President to denounce "hate and racism." The Governator noted: "The only way to beat the loud, angry voice of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices that includes you, President Trump... In fact, as president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won't stand for hate and racism." We couldn't have said it better ourselves. 45 wasn't the only person Arnold came for though as he also had some choice words for neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and neo-Confederates. He continued: "Your heroes are losers. You are supporting a lost cause. And believe me, I knew the original Nazis, because you see, I was born in Austria in 1947, shortly after the Second World War. And growing up, I was surrounded by broken men, men who came home from a war filled with shrapnels and guilt, men who were misled into a losing ideology. And I can tell you: that these ghosts you idolize spent the rest of their lives living in shame and right now, they're resting in hell." Damnnnnn, Arnie isn't holding back! Still, Schwarzenegger makes an excellent point. Be sure to ch-ch-check out his latest jab at Trump for yourself (below). We promise, you DON'T want to miss this! [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»

Related: Trump's Defense Of The Confederacy Just Lost Him America's Unions! George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd Presidents respectively, released a statement on Wednesday about the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. And though it didn't mention Trump by name, it did serve to shame him by explaining how he should have reacted: "America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms. As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city's most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country." LOVE the reference to the Declaration of Independence. We don't know if it's coincidental, but the mention of a piece of American history of which Trump supporters have already shown their ignorance is some classy shade. Or maybe just sincere patriotism? Related: Obama's Response To The Charlottesville Rally Is Now The Most Liked Tweet Ever Damn, when someone just being patriotic seems to be shaming the POTUS, you know we're screwed. And the Bushes weren't the only Republicans who released statements that seemed to exist to shame Trump's declaration that there were "very fine people on both sides." Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote on Wednesday: "The white supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups who brought hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington. Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America. We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis, and those who espouse their views are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head." Again, no mention of Trump by name, but come on. No need. [Image via NBC/Twitter.].....»»

Robert E. Lee"s Great-Great Grandson Condemns Charlottesville Violence — And Says It"s "Fine" To Remove Confederate Statues

With all the controversy over Donald Trump's epic mishandling of a national tragedy, right up to defending neo-Nazis on live TV, it's easy to forget how this all started.

Charlottesville had voted to remove their statues of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, as people found them to be glorifying the side of the Civil War that fought to keep slavery. Related: Solange Deleted Her Twitter And Told Nazis To Go Fuck Themselves! That's why neo-Nazis, neo-confederates, KKK members, and other white supremacist subgroups banded together and descended on the town in the first place. Well, an unexpected voice has arisen to condemn the actions of the people protesting the statue's removal -- Robert E. Lee V, the great-great grandson of the Southern soldier. He told CNN on Wednesday: "Those sorts of acts on Saturday, that's just not to be tolerated. We feel strongly that Gen. Lee would never ever stand for that sort of violence." He also wanted to send a positive message to those hurt in the violence: "We just want people to know that the Lee family just really wants to send their best to the people in Charlottesville." As for the statues? Related: Former Presidents Shame Trump With Eloquent, Unequivocal Response To White Supremacists Lee thinks it's perfectly understandable to discuss taking them down without any violence: "Eventually, someone is going to have to make a decision, and if that's the local lawmaker, so be it. But we have to be able to have that conversation without all of the hatred and the violence. And if they choose to take those statues down, fine." He added: "Maybe it's appropriate to have them in museums or to put them in some sort of historical context in that regard." Seems totally reasonable to us. Not having to walk by tributes to men who fought for slavery every day is an important step in the healing of this country that's been long overdue. You know who else thought so? General Lee himself. After the war, he wrote on the subject of monuments: "I think it wiser not to keep open the sores of war, but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavoured to obliterate the marks of civil strife and to commit to oblivion the feelings it engendered." Something tells us these white supremacists won't honor the wishes of their "hero" when it doesn't align with their racist mission. [Image via Twitter.].....»»

Unsurprisingly, the president's initial non-response -- a vague tweet condemning "hate" instead of denouncing white nationalism -- caused a whole lot of backlash, which POTUS continued to stay silent for.

Donald Trump Defends His Charlottesville Statement AGAIN! He Can"t Admit He Was Wrong About Nazis!

They are forgetting that he is completely incapable of ever admitting he's wrong. That means he'll never get past his worst moments, including his defense of white supremacists in Charlottesville. The POTUS was answering press questions on Air Force One on Thursday when a reporter asked simply how his meeting with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott had gone. Video: Floyd Mayweather Jr. Says Trump Is A 'Real Man' For Pussy-Grabbing Comments! Scott is a Black Republican who was openly critical -- as was most of the damn country -- of how Trump refused to condemn the Neo-Nazis whose march ended in the death of a counter-protester. Trump took the moment to reiterate just how right he was that "both sides" had been wrong. He said: "I think especially in light of the advent of Antifa, if you look at what's going on there. You have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that's what I said. Now, because of what's happened since then with Antifa — you look at really what's happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying and people have actually written, 'Gee, Trump might have a point.' I said, 'You've got some very bad people on the other side also,' which is true." Ugh. Uggggggghhhhhhh. Related: Ivanka Says Influence Over Her Father Is An 'Unrealistic Expectation' So what is he talking about? What does he mean by "what's happened since Charlottesville"? Don't worry that you missed some big events in the news. You didn't. It's just Trump's usual propaganda/self-aggrandizement cycle: 1. Trump says something awful with no basis in fact. 2. Trump's supporters, including right wing conspiracy theorists, willfully ignorant supporters, political allies, and yes, Russian Twitter bots, push that message out through made up news stories, memes, and just plain arguing. 3. Trump sees all of this, usually reported on Fox News, and takes it as evidence for what he said in the first place. 4. Trump says "I told you so" a lot. There isn't some media conspiracy against Trump. The truth is much more simple. Nazis are bad. Trump didn't say that; he was using political correctness to protect his many racist supporters. And he will keep bringing it up because he just can't stand people saying he was wrong. You can listen to his statements in full (below)! [Image via Newspix.pl/WENN.].....»»

Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Jimmy Kimmel Reacts to Trump"s Charlottesville Comments (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel is sharing his thoughts on how President Donald Trump has been handling the violent marches that erupted in Charlottesville, Va., where white nationalists have been clashing with counter-protestors.

The 49-year-old talk show host addressed the situation during his opening monologue on Monday night (August 14). “We went into the weekend worrying about the fact that Kim Jong-un vowed to start a war by the middle of this month,” Jimmy said. “And we come out of it wondering if our president is cutting eye holes out of his bedsheets.” “As you know, this weekend in Virginia, the worst people in the United States went to the hardware store, bought tiki torches, lit ‘em up, and marched in Charlottesville,” he continued. “A non-violent protester was killed by a white supremacist and so the president – who is the president, by the way – went on television. He started with a prepared statement, and then he had to throw in ‘on many sides.’” “Let’s not lay all the blame on the Nazis and the Klan here, there were people who marched against them,” Jimmy joked, adding, “Then for two days [Trump] had no further comment. The one thing he decides to be quiet about is this! Of course, everyone went nuts because … there were two sides – not many – and one of those sides had Nazis on it.” “All he had to do was condemn the Nazis, which shouldn’t have been difficult!” Jimmy said. “It’s not exactly a controversial stance, not like we asked him to come out against puppies.” He also shared, “Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called the rally ‘evil’ and ‘disgusting.’ You understand what that means? That means Germany is taking a stronger stance against Nazis than we are … and they invented them.” Watch his full monologue below. Jimmy Kimmel on Donald Trump’s Charlottesville Comments.....»»

The University Of Texas Removes Confederate Monuments!

Skipping the rally this time. President Greg Fenves of the University of Texas in Austin has ordered the immediate removal of confederate monuments from the main area of campus, citing that such statutes have become "symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism." Fenves made the announcement late Sunday night as crews were in place to remove the [...] Skipping the rally this time. President Greg Fenves of the University of Texas in Austin has ordered the immediate removal of confederate monuments from the main area of campus, citing that such statutes have become "symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism." Fenves made the announcement late Sunday night as crews were in place to remove the statues of confederate leaders -- including Robert E. Lee -- by mid-morning on Monday. A spokesperson said the school also blocked off the area during the process. Though the controversial statues will no longer be perched near the campus clock tower, they aren't total history. Related: Six Flags Over Texas Removes Confederate Flag Amid Backlash! Fenves noted the statues of Lee, Confederate Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston, and Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan will now be moved to a campus history museum at the Brisco Center. The school will also move a statue of former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg, which was commissioned at the same time as the others, to another place on campus. In his statement, the University president made it clear this decision was in response to the violence that broke out in Charlottesville earlier this month over the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. He explained: "Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation. These events make it clear, now more than ever, that Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism. The University of Texas at Austin is a public educational and research institution, first and foremost. The historical and cultural significance of the Confederate statues on our campus — and the connections that individuals have with them — are severely compromised by what they symbolize. Erected during the period of Jim Crow laws and segregation, the statues represent the subjugation of African Americans. That remains true today for white supremacists who use them to symbolize hatred and bigotry." Way to clean up our ugly past, Longhorns -- and doing it in a way that still preserves the history.

Father Publicly Disowns Son After He Took Part In "Pro-White Activist" Marches In Charlottesville Rally

Maybe listen to dad on this one. A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. On Monday, Pearce Tefft penned a moving letter to his son Peter, warning that he will be ostracized from his family if he refuses to [...] Maybe listen to dad on this one. A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. On Monday, Pearce Tefft penned a moving letter to his son Peter, warning that he will be ostracized from his family if he refuses to let go of his "hateful opinions." Video: Late Night On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists In a post on the Forum of Fargo website, Pearce wrote: "My son is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast." Peter calls himself a pro-white activist who went to Charlottesville to protest against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The "Unite the Right" rally erupted into violence after "pro-white activists" clashed with counter-protesters demonstrating against the event. Peter was seen in news footage at the event and, days later, promoted his cause on CBS Minnesota, whining about how "white people deserve civil rights." Related: Jennifer Lawrence Encourages Unmasking White Supremacists! He also flipped the term "white supremacy" on its head, explaining: "As far as the term white supremacist goes, in my view, anybody that thinks white people don't need advocacy, they are the white supremacists." Uh... wut? Like most, Peter's family does Na-zi the ways of his bizarre logic. His nephew Jacob Scott has described the pro-white activist as a "crazy Nazi," telling the Forum: "He scares us all. We don't feel safe around him, and we don't know how he came to be this way… We reject him wholly — both him as a vile person who has himself made violent threats against our family, and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor." Pearce echoed the family's sentiments, making it clear his son's "twisted worldview" was not learned at home. In response to the multiple threats the family received, Peter's father added: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview." Yikes. How did we get here, again?

The former SNL star, who actually attended the University of Virginia, joked about Trump‘s full name before giving a suggestion to viewers. “It broke my heart to see these evil forces decsend upon Charlottesville, then our president, Donald John Trump — which I don’t think people talk enough about what a stupid, jackass name that is. Donald John? Whatever! He gets away with it because he’s gorgeous,” Tina said. “Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say.” “There’s nine more alt-right rallies planned around the country this Saturday, including one in New York City in Washington Square Park,” she continued. “Part of me hopes these neo-Nazis do try it and get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens, because you know what a drag queen still is? A six-foot-four black man.” “I don’t want any more good people to get hurt,” Tina said. “And I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, ‘What can I do?’ So I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in these screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business that you support — maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery. Order a cake with the American flag on it like this one and just eat it, Colin.” Tina continued the rest of her appearance while digging into the cake!.....»»
