"Anytime a candidate has to devote time to itemizing the difference between him and Hitler that should be kind of a red flag." - Andy Borowitz

A few notable responses to Charlottesville violence and our great leader's inability to be great or a leader.

@SallyQYates
The poison spewed by Nazis, white supremacists, and the KKK is not who we are as a country. Takes less than 140 characters to say it.

When you've lost your confederate flag but still want everyone to know you're a racist moron. Pro Trump sticker on a big truck. Lost Your Confederate Flag? marchmatron.com

David Duke: 
("Former" KKK leader, former Republican Louisiana State Representative, and surprise! early Trump supporter.) 
This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That's what's believed in. That's why we voted for Donald Trump.

Trump: 
We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hated bigotry and violence . . . on many sides, on many sides.
(and by many sides I mean everyone except, of course, for me and the people who voted for me and for David Duke, who I don't know but who says nice things about me and must be a great person . . .  is what I assume to be the underlying message of Trump's delayed response.)

Unite The Right:
Trump comments were good. He says he loves us all. Also refused to answer a question about White Nationalists supporting him. No condemnation at all. When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good.

Trump:
(After days of harsh criticism and possibly a puppet show on the Trump property damage after a real torch wielding mob, Trump was propelled back to the microphone.)
Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.

David Duke:
(Responding to his apparently ungrateful benefactor.)
So, after decades of White Americans being targeted for discriminated and anti-White hatred, we come together as a people, and you attack us? 
I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror and remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.

White Americans are so afraid to speak out that we've allowed our country to be invaded and our children to be propagandized by Marxists.

It’s amazing to see how the media is able to bully the President of the United States into going along with their FAKE NEWS narrative.

President Trump, please, for God’s sake, don’t feel like you need to say these things. It’s not going to do you any good.

However, it was pointed out that photographic records identifying individual attendees, looked particularly striking in the torchlight and may be difficult to explain in the future should one need security clearance, a background check or employment at Tiki.

The range of people Philippe Halsman was able to photograph for his book Jump is remarkable.
