Too Little, Too Late

Trump finally said something.

“Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists,and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said in unscheduled remarks at the White House, where he arrived Monday on a day trip as part of his two-week “working vacation.”

He said “anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence” would be “held fully accountable.”

Well, whaddayaknow, racism is evil.  Who knew?  I’m so glad he cleared that up.

Watching the video, I’ve seen that same look on the face of hostages reading the propaganda of their captors, except they’re far more convincing.  (Funny Or Die’s take is here.)

Later he complained that the “fake media” wasn’t satisfied with his too-little-too-late statement of the glaringly obvious.  “Truly bad people!”  Which apparently means that his statement was bogus in the first place and he was pissed that everybody watching it knew it and called him out on it.
