Listen, here’s the thing: Donald Trump is going down with the white supremacist ship and he’s not terribly interested in your opinion on the matter.
Yes, a large contingent of Klan members, neo-Nazis, and just plain old, traditional Nazis held a massive rally in Charlottesville on Saturday.
And yes, they were mostly Trump supporters.
And yes, they turned the college town into a combination of “Christine” and Black Hawk Down, as late- model Dodge Challengers went rogue and police choppers fell out of the sky, while the former Grand Wizard of the KKK said, on national television, that everyone was just “fulfilling the promises of Donald Trump.”
And finally, yes, there are apparently pictures of Donald Trump with some of the folks who got into a torch fight in front of a statue of Thomas Jefferson on Friday evening.
But look, all of that aside, “it got great ratings, ok?”
And it demonstrates, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Trump still has a support base that is figuratively and literally “fired” up, “locked and loaded,” and ready to kill a motherfucker for this President.
So in a way, what we saw on Saturday was the very definition of “tremendous” patriotism – “a lot of people are saying that.”
So you know, look at it from the President’s perspective.
Well, as it turns out, Ivanka is ready to go out on a limb and say that murderous Nazi parades aren’t something we should generally be excited about as a nation. Here’s what she said this morning:
Thanks, Ivanka. Especially considering your husband is Jewish.
Do note, however, that if too many people with the last name “Trump” start speaking out against white nationalists, your dad will lose the support of the only people that are still answering “yes” to the survey question: “do you approve of the job the President is doing?”
