Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Which gets condemned first.... media or Nazis


Obama

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Which gets condemned first.... media or Nazis


Any takers on "both sides" being bad?  How about an over/under then?

Yep. Or it's not about Charlottesville at all.

Many sides, many sides.
 
2017-08-14 12:35:44 PM  
Media.

And I bet ONE FARK that he won't mention the murder.
 
2017-08-14 12:35:47 PM  
Surprise me.  I dare you.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:10 PM  
Who put the screws to  him to make him come out and address it now? McMaster?
 
2017-08-14 12:36:24 PM  
there are the notes. Gonna be a halting I can barely read speech he's best at.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:26 PM  
Well, they just replaced his speech, so I'm guessing Bannon and Gorka already walked the language back from an actual denouncement.  Not that it matters, he'll say whatever pops into his head on the fly anyway.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:30 PM  
I'm not watching because he's too late anyway.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:30 PM  
I bet he calls out Antifa as the main hate groups to be blamed.  Antifa isanti-Trump after all.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:36 PM  
The "violence from all sides" line didn't appear in the official printed statement. Which means Trump probably ad-libbed it. Let's see if his handlers have gotten him under control. Because he could just as easily start yelling "Race war!" as denounce Nazis.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:39 PM  
Did it already happen?  It's supposed to start at 12pm and it's at least 12:35 now.
 
2017-08-14 12:36:40 PM  
He'll start by mentioning Black Lives Matter then move on to white supremacists
 
2017-08-14 12:36:45 PM  
George Washington, giving the podium a grand old stink eye.

Yeah, he could totally throw a smokebomb.

I wonder which minority group he'll target to victimize.

I've launched a pre-emptive strike on North Korea due to an imminent threat.

Why yes I was left alone with Bannon this morning, why do you ask?
 
2017-08-14 12:37:02 PM  
America, you will notice that on my left is a photo of black people on a road. This is how I envision America -- there are black people on roads everywhere, even roads in Charlottesville, and you'll notice there are no Dodge Challengers there. I would never allow a Dodge Challenger in this painting, and I'm the only president who's ever made that commitment. And look above my head. That's George Washington. He was great, a great president, he was just like me in knowing that slavery is wrong and wanting to fight Nazis. There were no Nazis in America when George Washington was president, and I vow to uphold his vision.

Obama


Hillary
 
2017-08-14 12:37:16 PM  
vague bullshiat or is he literally going to say "black lives matter" is just as bad as Nazis and the klan?

HMS_Blinkin: Glitchwerks: I'm betting doubling down on the dog whistles.

Ya all youtube says is "statement" so we either nuked Pyongyang or its about how great he is.  However, the elf called it domestic terrorism this morning, so who knows?!
 
2017-08-14 12:37:22 PM  
1:1 odds on him congratulating himself on something.  If he goes off script we are going to see some shiat.
I expect this to make me very farking pissed off this morning.
 
2017-08-14 12:37:48 PM  

Tsukue: Did it already happen?  It's supposed to start at 12pm and it's at least 12:35 now.


No, they are farking late as usual.

They love leaving the media hanging.
 
2017-08-14 12:37:52 PM  
Hopefully he'll put a little more sincerity into this one.  His last speech was pathetic.  It sounded like he was ordering off the menu at McDonalds.
 
2017-08-14 12:37:53 PM  

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Which gets condemned first.... media or Nazis


He'll start with a token lukewarm condemnation followed by harshly blaming Obama, Hillary, ACA supporters, and just about everyone else who isn't a Nazi.
 
2017-08-14 12:37:58 PM  

Tsukue: Did it already happen?  It's supposed to start at 12pm and it's at least 12:35 now.


Does this administration ever do anything on time?
 
2017-08-14 12:38:02 PM  
They had an aide remove a plant from the mantel. Weird.
 
2017-08-14 12:38:17 PM  

Tsukue: Did it already happen?  It's supposed to start at 12pm and it's at least 12:35 now.


The administration is very consistent in that they are late to every press conference, no matter who is supposed to speak.
 
2017-08-14 12:38:26 PM  
If he does condemn White supremacists he will make a jab at Obama about not saying Radical Moosllim
 
2017-08-14 12:38:30 PM  
 
2017-08-14 12:38:31 PM  
Can we have the ghost of George Washington in that portrait over the lectern give this speech instead?
 
2017-08-14 12:38:46 PM  
I can't wait for him to back up Johnny Rocket's statements that the counter-protestors are equally bad for allowing the alt-right to commit violence.
 
2017-08-14 12:38:49 PM  

UncleDirtNap: Hopefully he'll put a little more sincerity into this one.  His last speech was pathetic.  It sounded like he was ordering off the menu at McDonalds.


He looked and sounded like someone who had his tee time kicked back 2 hours but he wants to play right now goddammit.
 
2017-08-14 12:38:58 PM  
A liberal cut his brake lines.
(I'm surprised I haven't heard this seriously yet.)

No one before me would call out radical islamic terrorism for what it is. I'm the first. Goodbye

Glitchwerks: I'm betting doubling down on the dog whistles.


If he is directing the Department of Justice to transfer available funding from white collar criminal prosecutions to investigating antifa and BLM for their role in instigating violence at initially peaceful right wing events I think it would fall under "shocking but not surprising".
 
2017-08-14 12:39:16 PM  
He'll give a hollow perfectly fine response then go way off the rails and end up tripling down by the end/

Fake News, Obama, and Democrats oh My!


Anyone have the clip from Morning Joe with the montage of past GOP presidents disavowing racism?

/my google-fu is weak
 
2017-08-14 12:39:20 PM  
I'm betting on antifa antifa antifa
 
2017-08-14 12:39:29 PM  
I expect something like
"ok, ok, ok, yes, Nazis are kind of bad, Happy now?  and I'm the greatest president ever that you find more anti nazi in the whole word. JOb are back, the economy is great and I won the election by millions of people who agree with all that. Not like Obama or Hillary"

I'm totally conflicted.  On the one hand I want to watch to see if Trump actually specifically condemns white supremacists and neo nazis.  On the other hand, listening to Trump speak makes me want to punch myself in the head.  It's even worse if he uses his creepy serious/constrained Trump voice.

Any bets on whether he references himself in the third person?
 
2017-08-14 12:39:41 PM  
For all practical purposes, there's a 0% chance of him not making it worse. Even if he apologizes and fully retracts his prior, ignorant nonsense, the terrorists will just brush it of as him being bullied by the media and "leftists".

The damage is done. Better luck next time, two scoops.
 
2017-08-14 12:39:45 PM
