In other ‘Democrats-Do-Nothing-Except-Waste-Time-And-Money-News,’ House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi just endorsed a call to censure President trump on Friday, Politico reports.
A censure is a formal rebuke of the president and is considered a step before impeachment. The censure was introduced by Democrats Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY), Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ) and Pramila Jayapal (WA), and has been signed on by 79 Democrats.
The reason for the censure? President Trump’s Charlottesville comments. The Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media have been saying that President Trump is some kind of white nationalist because his comments “defended” white supremacists.
Except that didn’t happen. President Trump came out and said “many sides” were to blame on Saturday, the White House specifically condemned white supremacy on Sunday, and on Monday President Trump himself explicitly condemned them again, saying:
“Racism is evil — and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
On Tuesday the President again said that there were two sides committing violence during the rally.
So I guess condemning white supremacy means defending white supremacy in the topsy-turvy world of the Democrats. When announcing her support for the censure, Pelosi said:
“The President’s repulsive defense of white supremacists demands that Congress act to defend our American values.”
These people will say and do anything to hold onto their power- but their desperation shows that their grip is loosening. The truth is plain for anyone to see- the President condemns racism, period.
