When A Democrat condemned Donald Trump, she was shocked at what came next.
Her lies backfired immediately.
A top Democrat was immediately destroyed when she made this Trump attack.
Democrats love to repeat lies about former President Donald Trump at every opportunity they get.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) attempted to use the Charlottesville “fine people hoax” to attack former President Donald Trump.
The Democrats like to falsely claim that Trump referred to neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017 as “very fine people.”
However, Trump said neo-Nazis and white supremacists should be “condemned totally.”
Trump noted later “If you look at what I said, you will see that question was answered perfectly. And I was talking about people that went because they felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee, a great general. Whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals.”
The “very fine people on both” was referring to people peacefully protesting the issue of whether a Confederate statue should be removed.
Trump did not use the best choice of words to express his sentiments. However, it was completely twisted by his political opposition.
The Democrats want the public to believe that Trump, and anyone that voted for him, are morally reprehensible.
Lee, who chairs the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, referenced the lie while in a hearing titled “The Rise of Domestic Terrorism in America.”
She said that Charlottesville “attempts to equate white supremacy to anarchists, activists, and other groups who are opposed to white nationalism and other domestic terror.”
She added, referring to Charlottesville: “No, there are not good people on both sides.”
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) stopped Lee in order to set the record straight by rolling the tape where Trump made the statement.
Trump made clear in the same interview that when he was talking about “that were very fine people, on both sides” he was not referring to neo-Nazis and white nationalists.
“So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.” Trump said in the tape that Brigg played.
Brigg then concluded: “The point is, the previous president, the former president, Trump, called out neo-Nazis and white nationalists and said they should be condemned. I think there’s no one in this room that would disagree with that statement.”
