Moments after President Donald Trump condemned today’s Charlottesville rally violence, indicating it came from “many sides,” Rep.Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) appeared on MSNBC to give his take. And he revealed he was far from impressed with Trump’s response.
Oh, and he also labeled one of the president’s advisors a Nazi.
Because he is one.

“The first thing is that the president is not condemning terrorism that’s occurring in Charlottesville,” Gallego noted. “It’s sickening he’s not showing any leadership. It also continues to be a trend.”
“The fact is, the president has surrounded himself in his office with a bunch of alt-right heroes such as Dr. [Sebastian] Gorka, who is also reputed to be a nationalist, a Nazi in some parts of Europe,” Gallego said.
Gallego wasn’t the only one to pinpoint Gorka — who has become a favorite of the president’s due to his combative TV interviews — as a bad influence in the wake of the Charlottesville violence. During an MSNBC appearance earlier today, Richard Painter demanded that Trump get rid of Gorka and Steve Bannon because the rally was fully associated with Breitbart News, where Gorka and Bannon previously worked.
