(Liberty Bell) – It is a common lie among leftists that President Donald Trump said that white supremacists who showed up to cause chaos in Charlottesville in 2017 were “very fine people.”
Of course, he didn’t say that. He said that, of those who opposed or supported the removal of confederate statues, there were “very fine people” on both sides of that debate.
Now, despite the amount of time that sites like ours have debunked this lie, the left keeps repeating it.
Joe Biden, who has not only repeated this lie frequently but even used it in his announcement for his White House bid, has just gone above and beyond.
Not only has he repeated this oft-referenced LIE…he’s added a bigger one on top of it!
Now, he’s said that Trump never condemned the white supremacists at all…when he did literally just this, more than once, immediately after the death of Heather Heyer, who was struck and killed by a car during the Charlottesville riots.
At CNN’s town hall Thursday night, a retired police chief asked Biden how he would bring respect back to law enforcement and the military, and how he would bring the country together.
Biden responded by condemning violence “of any kind, no matter who it’s coming from,” then added that the president “has yet to condemn … the far-right and the white supremacists.”
That is false, and repeats a lie Biden has told before — also on CNN, and also in the presence of Anderson Cooper, who moderated Thursday night’s event and failed to correct him.
ABC News, to their credit, fact-checked Biden because, well, he was lying his face off.
Two days after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 — after first equating violence from white supremacists with those protesting — Trump said, “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.”
A month later, the president signed a congressional resolution condemning white supremacy.
In 2019, following shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump said, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.”
“These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul,” he added.
To be fair, Biden may not be lying, he may have just descended so deeply into dementia he thinks the lies he’s repeated so often are the truth.
