On Tuesday, Donald Trump stood before reporters and, live on video, drew a moral equivalence between white supremacists and the counter-protestors defending the rights of minorities. We know this is what he did because, as mentioned, he was on camera and we all watched him do it.
Many people took to Twitter to condemn Trump for his remarks. Prominent among them was Republican Senator Lindsey Graham:
Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 17, 2017
...and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can't forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 17, 2017
