You might remember the other day when even the right-leaning Washington Examiner deleted a tweet about Joe Biden “correcting” Breitbart’s Joel Pollak when Pollak tried to tell Biden that President Trump never called neo-Nazis and white supremacists “very fine people” following the fatal protests in Charlottesville. The Examiner later said the two had a “heated exchange,” seen here:

We don’t mean to harp on the Charlottesville hoax — well, actually we do, and you’ll see why in the video below — but come on … how tough is it to watch a video that disproves the whole thing? This video really is infuriating.
The "Fine People" Hoax remains one of the most pervasive, yet easily debunked lies told every single day by politicians and pundits, and happily amplified by the MSM

Of course Don Lemon’s in there. Does he really not know, or he knows and just doesn’t care? As we reported earlier, at least one mainstream journalist, CNN’s Jake Tapper, has broken rank and explained the whole “very fine people” myth.
Even CNN's Jake Tapper says that Trump did not say that: “He’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people”pic.twitter.com/2hy1rQp8nP

Well…. Scott Adam's put it best….
1. Don Lemon is a racist a.k.a. #RDL
2. TDS has taken hold of the media
3. Once you make your TDS public, there is no going back.

Not even a trump supporter but even i know "very fine people" were the regular people that were protesting the removal of historical landmarks and not marching with torches

Exactly. And there were very fine people demanding that statues of Confederates like Robert E. Lee be taken down (which they soon were, and schools renamed, etc.).
"Fine People" provides particularly useful test of whether a source can be considered authoritative.
If the full transcript is published, it might be an authoritative source.
If the full transcript absent, the source cannot be authoritative.

There are transcripts and video yet they repeatedly and shamelessly lie anyway. Then bitch that no one finds them credible.

I could never thumbs up this enough. What they are doing is a travesty. God bless this President. God bless him.
