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 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.
