'Trump had not, at the time, been talking about Robert E. Lee. Trump was grasping for a defense, furious about the bipartisan and nearly universal criticism of his earlier statements:: “Venting, his face red as he personally executed the defense of his own actions that no one else would; he Trump all but erased any good will he had earned Monday when he named racist groups and called them ‘repugnant to everything we hold dear' His argument did not reflect the reality of the situation—there were white supremacists shouting “white lives matter” and “Jews will not replace us.” Instead, he attempted to reduce this violent hatred to an issue of statue preservation.'

"Technically, Trump had mentioned Leelater on, after he had already weathered a backlash for his initial comments. The press conference in which he first drew moral equivalence between anti-racist protesters and avowed white supremacists came on Aug. 12. "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides," he said, placing an emphasis on the last three words. He repeated: "On many sides ."

He gave another more diplomatic response the next day, but the president doubled down on the "both-sides" position three days later, tossing aside his more carefully scripted remarks about condemning hatred to blast his critics in a combative exchange with reporters ."

Talking his base, and talking without thinking,, he forgets that video exists, and his behavior in the context of the situation equals the reality! ( EH? Gary B.)
