  Hollywood, Beltway Slam Trump’s Refusal To Call Out White Supremacists © Provided by Deadline

President Donald Trump’s choice to blame “many sides” for the now-fatal violence in Charlottesville today has drawn outrage and condemnation from Hollywood players, Beltway pundits and even, in a subtler way than some, his old rival Jeb Bush.

In his speech from Bedminster, N.J., the president said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides.”

Today’s “United the Right” rally was organized by white nationalists and alt-right groups in opposition to a planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue from the University of Virginia’s recently renamed Emancipation Park. After a Trump tweet today condemning “all that hate stands for,” white nationalist and former KKK Imperial Wizard David Duke tweeted, “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.”

Dem lawmaker calls Trump ‘enabler-in-chief’

  Dem lawmaker calls Trump ‘enabler-in-chief’ Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) called President Trump the "enabler-in-chief" for waiting days to condemn the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who took part in the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. "I think he's the enabler-in-chief, which makes him partly responsible," Pascrell said in a press conference Monday afternoon.Pascrell's comments come just before Trump on Monday called out white supremacist groups by name and declared that "racism is evil.""We're all responsible, but his responsibility is with a capital R because he's in a position to bring people together and he's chosen not to," Pascrell said.
