We’re just one week out from the Waukesha Christmas Parade attack, so of course, our favorite Never Trumper, Charlie Sykes, thinks we should be talking about Trump, Charlottesville, the January 6 riots, and his favorite lie to push, ‘very fine people.’
You’d think even a Never Trumper MIGHT be able to read the room just a little buuuut nope.
Those anti-Trump hate clicks and taps ain’t gonna click and tap themselves ya’ know.
Charlottesville was a dress rehearsal for the right’s response to the Jan. 6 insurrection. The same group that adamantly denied that Trump had praised racists as “very fine people” are now pushing revisionist versions of what happened at the Capitol. https://t.co/5b4XgaccLB

From MSNBC (because you knew it had to be MSNBC, right?):
Despite a jury’s $25 million verdict against a group of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and organizers of the 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia, “Unite the Right” rally, Republican leaders, once again, will not take the opportunity to repudiate the alt-right.
Republican leaders, once again, will not take the opportunity to repudiate the alt-right.
By now, this is an old story with a familiar pattern: denial, silence and historical revisionism.
Four years ago, after former President Donald Trump referred to some of the participants in the deadly rally as “very fine people,” Republicans had a chance to make it clear where they stood.
Torch-carrying bigots chanted, “Jews will not replace us!” An avowed neo-Nazi drove his car into counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.
Yes, Heyer’s death was horrific. It would be ‘nice’ if Charlie cared as much about the six Wisconsinites (one of whom was an 8-year-old child) who were mowed down during a Christmas parade BUT he can’t hate on and blame Trump for that. Although we’re sure if he really tried, he’d figure out a way to do it.
The timing just seems really thoughtless and absolutely tone-deaf.
One of the greatest things about the Trump Presidency is it forced the grifters to show themselves.

Why do idiots insist on taking anything you say seriously?

Because they’re idiots.
Really? You’re going to bring out the debunked “very fine people” lie again? You people are pathetic. Anything for a buck I guess.

Every time I see one of you fools droning on about January 6th, I just laugh. You keep trying to make it a thing it's not. It's so completely sad and pathetic.

If that's true, let's find out. Release the video tapes from January 6.

MSNBC is very reputable. Intimidating juries is cool.
