Trump’s response to the Charlottesville terrorist attack was so bad that even Fox News couldn’t excuse it. Fox co-host Eboni Williams broke from the usual Fox script by blasting Trump for his deplorable actions over the weekend.
“Mr. President, your initial remarks were cowardly and dangerous,” Williams said, “and they indeed warranted a second statement.”
The host then asked if Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” included all people. She stated, “I was legitimately unsure, but absent more conclusive evidence, I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. I can no longer do that, Mr. President. No more benefit, all doubt.”
Williams pointed out that Trump “very intentionally chose to be ambiguous and to equivocate” in his initial statement:
“President Trump, I do not know your heart. But what I do know for sure is that you’ve clearly done the math, and you’ve decided that your portion of the base that is absolutely racist is so significant, so valuable that you hesitate, even in the face of blatant, flagrant hatred to risk turning them off and thereby crippling your political stronghold.”
She concluded, “While you personally might not be a racist, President Trump, what you are is all too happy to reap the benefits of their support.”
