    I caught that also. He took pains to talk about the violence on all sides.. Yeah, sure there's violence on all sides, but in the context of a homicidal, almost certainly white supremacist lunatic just plowing into a crowd of innocent people and killing a young woman, it seems a bit ridiculous not to point out the obvious.

    Good. More of that, please.

    Almost certainly obvious? Maybe we should hold fire until we have a clear target.

    Can someone tell us at what time mark Senator Bernie Sanders condemns radical left-wing domestic terrorism in this speech after Representative Scalise was shot? I can't seem to find it.

    Oh, that's because he doesn't mention it.

    Gee, I wonder why the media didn't seem to have a problem with that????

    Heck, you think the kid was a Black Lives Matter member who decided to drill his car into dozens of his own friends for yucks? Maybe, but hey, I think "almost certainly obvious" hits the bullseye.

    I can't speak for the media, but I have a problem with it. Disagree with a lot of Bern's policies (grew out of Communist phase in my 20s), though generally think the fellow's likable enough, not your typical politician, shoots a little straighter than Hillary, Obama, Bush 43, Bill--but here, you're right, he ought to have condemned the left wing lunatics just the same as the right wing lunatics.

    But in any event, what Bern did isn't relevant here, we're talking about Trump, and I just don't get him failing to mention the elephant in the room.

    I said nothing about BLM or Antifa or any other leftist violence mongering group. I will say that the smoke must clear from the battlefield for us to have a clear view of how the battle went.

    The Mooch weighs in - talks about Bannon Breitbart issues

    "With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out," Scaramucci said, referring to Trump's seeming unwillingness to condemn the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, where clashes between white nationalists and counter-protest groups forced the city to declare a state of emergency Saturday."

    Not entirely so. Pres. Trump does not drink alcohol - at all. Why? According to this, it's because he had an older brother, who died at 42, of alcoholism.

    Donald Trump 'never drank alcohol' due to brother Freddy's death

    I don't drink it either - any more. I had enough and gave it up around 13 years ago. But if I had to deal with Kim Jong-Un, I might start again!

    Before playing a homicidal Jay Leno, young Fields posed with a group named Vanguard America. A genuinely fascist group:

    "Vanguard America stands indomitably opposed to the tyranny of globalism and capitalism, a system under which nations are stripped of their heritage and their people are turned into nothing more than units of cheap, expendable labor."
