What President Trump must say about White Nationalists

Dear Dear Leader,
You’re brilliant at twitter, Mr. President. You have redefined that medium while causing Twitter’s stock to soar.*
But these times require more than 140 characters; they demand at least 140 words. You’re busy, I know, which is why I took time out of my busy day to draft a few sole words for you to deliver about the Nazi racist dickheads in Virginia (and in other states too). I even took the trouble of incorporating some of your prior remarks to make this sound more authentic. You’re welcome.
*May not be true.**
**Is definitely not true.
“We have a divider as a president. He is the great divider and I have said it for a long time. And it’s probably not been much worse at any time.”
When asked about the
Black Lives Matter White Nationalist movement, Trump was equally damning.
“First of all, I think the term is very divisive,” he said. “The first time I heard it, I said ‘you have to be kidding. They can’t use that, they just can’t.’ I think it’s a very, very, very divisive term.”
Pressed on whether he thought the group itself was helping or hurting America, Trump added, “I would say they are dividing America.”
“I saw what they said about
the police people of color in various marches and rallies. I have seen, you know, moments of silence a fight over statues for this horrible human being who shot the [Dallas] policemen fought for the losers – and they were definitely losers – in the Civil War … it’s very divisive and I think they are hurting themselves.”
