Democrats move to formally censure Trump over Charlottesville

Democrats move to formally censure Trump over Charlottesville, by Lesley Clark.

House Democrats are introducing a formal resolution to denounce President Donald Trump for saying that “both sides” are to blame for a violent encounter between white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the activists who showed up to protest them.

While the censure is unlikely to see traction in the GOP-led House, it serves as a rebuke to Trump and mirrors some of the Republican criticism the president has faced for his remarks.

“A president of the United States cannot support neo-Nazis. It’s just beyond the pale,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., a member of the House Judiciary Committee.

The spin: Pointing out that the leftist thugs caused violence is supporting neo-Nazis.
