Fox News reporter Doug McKelway got more than he bargained for on Saturday when he attempted to interview a group of pro-Nazi marchers at the “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville, VA.
McKelway seemed shocked that the right-wing marchers who showed up in vintage Nazi helmets, armed with brass knuckles and carrying shields weren’t interested in having an intellectual conversation about the role of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in U.S. history.
“Nobody’s having any sort of political discussions here,” McKelway said. “No one’s having any intellectual discussions or historical discussions about the significance of Robert E. Lee or the Confederate flag or anything.”
“They’re just angry,” he said, “and demonstrating it here. Let’s see if we can talk to some of these guys.”
He approached a group of helmeted, shield-carrying men and asked where they were headed.
“We’re trying to survive,” one said melodramatically.
“They’re gassing us!” said another in reference to police tear gas being used to disperse the protesters. “The f*cking Jew-lovers are gassing us!”
“Pardon his French,” said McKelway, excusing the “F-word,” but making no comment on whether or not the Virginia State Police are “Jew-lovers.”
One person died at Saturday’s protest after a car rammed a crowd of demonstrators. The Associated Press said at least 19 others were hurt.

Trump is desperate and clinging to anything he can use — including overt threats of violence
Donald Trump, by design, is a chaos monster who shovels crap out faster than people can process it. Unencumbered by normal human qualities like empathy or conscience, Trump can bounce from one awful behavior from another — grifting, sexual assault and harassment, racism, lying, conspiracy-mongering, criminal schemes — with astonishing speed, doing more wicked deeds in a day that what most aspiring villains can accomplish in a year or even a lifetime.
‘Cowardly’ and ‘shameful’: Critics say Trump’s refusal to release mid-year economic forecast an obvious election year ploy
"It gets them off the hook for having to say what the economic outlook looks like."
Administration officials have confirmed that the White House, breaking with decades of precedent, will not publish a mid-year economic forecast—a decision critics said is an obvious move to shield President Donald Trump from the political implications of a tanking economy ahead of November's election.
"Trump figures if he doesn't tell people they're out of work, they won't know they're out of work," tweeted writer Gerry Conway.
Internet stunned as pro-Trump reporter uses White House briefing to suggest the president depose Joe Scarborough
At Thursday's White House briefing, OANN reporter Chanel Rion suggested to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany that President Donald Trump should welcome a defamation suit from MSNBC host and former congressman Joe Scarborough — so that Trump can depose him and further investigate the conspiracy theory that he murdered staffer Lori Klausutis.
Even McEnany herself seemed taken aback by the suggestion, saying "I have no further comments."
