I'm not putting anybody on a moral plane.
I watched those events very closely,
Fake News, much much more closely
than you people watched it. You had a group
on one side that was bad, and a group
on the other side, the alt-left, no permit,
that was also very violent. No one wants to say that, but I'll say it
right now (speaking with myself, number one,
because I have a very good brain). I-condemn-
and-violence on many sides.
On many sides.
You better believe that every last one of my staff know
these are my words. And they know I'll pardon ol' Sheriff Joe
because he's a great American patriot, just like this other guy
Frederick O. Douglass. I hate to see what's happened to these guys.
to-all-we-hold-dear-as-Americans. Fake News is repugnant
to all we hold dear as Americans
because what about the alt-left's shenanigans?
(I love getting even with people.) We-must-love-one-another-
but not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me.
Not all of those people were white supremists, by any
stretch. There were some very fine people on both sides.
On both sides.
There was a group on this side, you can call them the left,
you have just called them the left,
that came violently attacking the other group. Jim
Fields is a disgrace. I am not going to pardon him.
but there are two sides to the country.
I don't even know who David Duke is, disavow,
even though, just like Putin, he's just now
said, "Thank you, President Trump, for your courage to tell the truth about
Did you see this? And still
I won't pardon the guy. Racism-strikes-at-the-very-core-
of-America, the United States of which I'm commander
in chief of, tremendous tremendous victory you failed to predict.
No chaos, Neil Gorsuch, stock market, jobs, but no credit.
Senator McCain? John McCain? You mean the one
that voted against Obamacare (skinny repeal of, I mean)?
When you say the alt-right, define alt-right to me.
You define it. Go ahead. No, define it for me!
C'mon, let's go! (You're so so so wrong.)
But I didn't wait long. I didn't wait long.
Facts are very very important to me, unlike to you (fairies) guys.
If you weren't fake, you would've said what I said was very nice.
Who's David Duke, by the way?
What is he, gay? I love gay.
Steve Bannon's no racist either, Fake Newsers,
but knowing what he knows, he's one of my favorite boozers.
Is it George Washington next? Was George
Washington a slave owner? So will George
Washington now lose his status?
Are we going to take down the statues
to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson?
Whereas I've never owned or knocked up even one
slave, though I easily could've afforded to, plenty
of them, could've used them at my clubs. I own twenty.
Wait a minute, I'm not finished!
I'm not finished,
Fake News. Does anyone know I own a house in Charlottesville?
It's in Charlottesville. I mean, I know a lot about Charlottesville.
Charlottesville's a great place that's been very badly hurt over the last
couple of days. I own actually one of the largest
wineries in the United States. It's in Charlottesville.
