Charlottesville Mayor Blames Trump

I enjoy debunking the MSM spin on the news. It’s not only what they tell you, but it’s what they purposefully do not tell you. 

For instance, Charlottesville Democrat Mayor Michael Signer is a hard leftists. He has worked for the Center for American Progress and worked with John Podesta on Barack Obama’s State Department Transition Team. He tried to have the march shut down until the ACLU said it was illegal for him to do so. 

Surprisingly, he places all the blame on the Republicans and specifically on Trump. 

President Donald Trump on Saturday blamed “many sides” for the violent clashes between protesters and white supremacists in Virginia and contended that the “hatred and bigotry” broadcast across the country had taken root long before his political ascendancy.

That was not how the Charlottesville mayor assessed the chaos that led the governor to declare a state of emergency, contending that Trump’s campaign fed the flames of prejudice.

Mayor Michael Signer said he was disgusted that the white nationalists had come to his town and blamed Trump for inflaming racial prejudices with his campaign last year.

“I’m not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you’re seeing in American today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president,” he said.

Surprised that a Democrat mayor who was in Obama’s pocket would blame Trump? 

Don’t you think that should be part of the news report? But the AP says nothing about that.
