(National Sentinel)Â Politics: A lot of people, including many of his supporters, wish that President Donald J. Trump would stop worrying about what people are saying about him and concentrate more on the business of running (and improving) the country.
Which is why he wasn’t about to let frequent critic Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., off the hook after he claimed the president hinted at a “moral equivalency” between Alt-Right neo-NazisÂ people like Heather Heyer, who was killed after a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters, theÂ Washington Times reported.
â€œPublicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacistsâ€¦and people like Ms. Heyer,â€ the president tweeted.
â€œSuch a disgusting lie. He just canâ€™t forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!â€ Mr. Trump tweeted.
Trump also said the media is misinterpreting what he has said in the aftermath, which is true — but, obviously, so are many in his own party.
â€œThe public is learning (even more so) how dishonest the Fake News is. They totally misrepresent what I say about hate, bigotry etc. Shame!â€ he tweeted.
Later Wednesday, Graham said Trump’s tweet honoring Heyer wasÂ â€œvery nice and appropriate.â€
â€œHowever, because of the manner in which you have handled the Charlottesville tragedy you are now receiving praise from some of the most racist and hate-filled individuals and groups in our country. For the sake of our nation â€” as our president â€” please fix this,â€ Graham said.
â€œHistory is watching us all,â€ he said.
On Monday TrumpÂ singled out neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and white supremacists as antithetical to U.S. values after condemning hatred, bigotry, and violence â€œon many sidesâ€ on Saturday in the immediate aftermath of the clashes.
On Tuesday, he blamed both sides — LeftÂ and Right — as he did the day of the clashes in Charlottesville, bold truth which torched the sensibilities of Washington’s establishment.
