The likes of CNN and the liberal media pushed the narrative that President Donald Trump resisted condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Trump did reject the praise from the likes of former Klan leader David Duke in March 2016, which apparently has been forgotten by the liberal media, and issued a statement on Saturday that condemned the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
But only until his speech yesterday did the media applaud his strong words to condemn white supremacy and violence by name.
However, the liberal media did forget that after the Dallas ambush of police officers, where five police officers were killed by a Black Lives Matter supporter, President Obama did not condemn the movement by name. It is a stark contrast to how the media wanted President Trump to condemn white supremacy by name.
Also, Obama did the same after the murder of Kate Steinle, when in the past, he had strong words about the deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.
It appears that the liberal media has very selective memory of a sitting president condemning a movement by name.
