President Trump defended neo-Nazis and white supremacists on national television.
He claimed to have closely followed the events in Charlottesville, VA, where white supremacists chanted "Jews are Satan's children," shouted racial slurs at town residents, and which culminated in the murder of a young protester at the hands of a right-wing domestic terrorist.
Observing all this, he said both sides were to blame. He also said there were "fine people" on both sides.
The president has failed to condemn white supremacists in the past. But his repeated defense of them is a new low. He must bear a cost for this historic moral failure.
