Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Donald Trump as he finally bends to two days of public pressure to unequivocally denounce white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK in the wake of violent rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia.
After two long days, in which the alt.right rejoiced, Trump’s ‘do-over’ speech was brief and begrudging,resembling nothing more than a hostage tape. Ironically, even the makers of Tiki torches beat Trump in firmly condemning and distancing themselves from the wankers who used their product in the march!
It’s certainly not as if Donald Trump is a stranger to condemnation,it is his chosen medium, he works in it as other artists do clay or oil paint. Trump’s base, the deplorable whiteys, aren’t fooled one iota that his second attempt means he loves them any less. As if to remove all doubt, Trump – still chaffing at the message he was forced to deliver, tweeted later tonight,emphatically naming and blaming the the true evil:
“The FAKE NEWS MEDIA will never be satisfied. Truly bad people.”
