WATCH: Fox News pundit lectures Dems to ‘move on’ and get over Charlottesville terrorism

Published

on

It hasn’t even been a week, but pro-Trump pundits are already telling Democrats it’s time to move on from the deadly white supremacist violence at last weekend’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In a Friday segment on Fox News discussing Steve Bannon’s ouster from the White House (which occurred the same time as rumors spread about a possible KKK rally in Durham, North Carolina), host Trish Regan had already had enough of talks about white supremacy.

“This Charlottesville episode hurt the president with the business community and investors,” Regan’s guest said.

“You know what? It’s time to move on,” Regan responded, “and the Democrats are not moving on. Instead, they’re out there labeling Steve Bannon a white supremacist and saying the whole administration is full of white supremacists.”

Bannon was at the helm of Breitbart as its’ CEO as it rose to prominence promoting white nationalism and the alt-right— ideologies the Anti-Defamation League says are euphemisms for white supremacy.

Bannon was not the only member of the Trump Administration who harbored white supremacist views. Trump aide Sebastian Gorka was outed for having neo-Nazi connections in Hungary, and is currently still employed by the White House despite his connection to Bannon. And earlier this week, President Donald Trump himself retweeted a post by alt-right activist Jack Posobiec.

Watch the Fox host claim there’s been enough mourning and outrage over last weekend’s white supremacist rally below.

An attorney for President Donald Trump argued on Tuesday that an unpublished portion of former National Security Adviser John Bolton's new book can not be considered in the president's impeachment trial.

“You cannot impeach a president on an unsourced allegation,” attorney Jay Sekulow told senators, referring to published accounts of Bolton's book.

"I don't know what you'd call that. I'd call it inadmissible, but that's what it is," he added.

Bolton's book reportedly makes the case that Trump sought a quid pro quo from Ukraine in order to get help with the 2020 U.S. election.

‘Our country is counting on you’: Daughter of Republican Nixon prosecutor calls out GOP

Published

Former Rep. Tom Railsback (R-IL) was the House member who brought together Republicans and Democrats for the "fragile bipartisan coalition" who intended to impeach former President Richard Nixon.

Just eight days ago, Railsback passed away, and while his daughter Kathryn works through her grief, she authored an editorial in the Washington Post calling on Republicans to listen to their better angels.

"As a young Republican representative from Illinois, Dad took his responsibilities as a legislator and a lawyer seriously. He believed in fairness and in upholding the rule of law," she remembered.
