From REUBEN BRIGETY at FOREIGN POLICY:
The late U.S. Poet Laureate Dr. Maya Angelou once said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them!”
In other words, no one can hide his true nature. Never has this been more accurate for an American president than in the case of Donald Trump. Events in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville have made this abundantly clear. For the first time in our history, a Nazi sympathizer occupies the Oval Office.
As a former U.S. ambassador and senior State Department official, I know that there is a particular obligation by political appointees not only to represent the interests of the American people but also to ensure that the policies and perspectives of the elected government of the day are implemented.

REPORTER: “Do you agree with the President that there were good people among the white supremacist protesters and that there was blame to be had on both sides? And, more broadly, sir, do you believe that Confederate statues should be removed as is happening in many cities across the South, or do you agree with the President that the Confederate General Robert E. Lee should be considered in the same pantheon as George Washington? :
MIKE PENCE: “What happened in Charlottesville was a tragedy, and the president has been clear on this tragedy and so have I. I spoke at length about this heartbreaking situation on Sunday night in Colombia, and I stand with the president and I stand by those words.”
We might have to change Walking Bowl of Cream of Wheat to Pence-ildick.

Mike Pence continued his attempt to cover up for Donald Trump’s refusal to directly rebuke racial terrorism committed in his name, but when challenged by a reporter on his claim that Trump had forcefully spoken out, he instead complained about “many in the media.”
Trump has refused to call out the white supremacists and Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville, Virginia, and who killed a young woman. Instead he referred to “many sides” being involved in the case.
Maybe instead of complaining about “many in the media,” Pence should complain about Nazis and alt-right white supremacists like Sebastian Gorka, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, et al who swarm all over the West Wing.

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.
Original screencap (Confessions of a Nazi Spy)
There was a picture posted of the alt-right gathering last night in Charlottesville, Virginia. Some people wonder how it, and the murder that occurred today, could have happened. It’s no wonder. This is what I saw:

Well, kids, the worst has happened (until the next worst happens), and Jeff Beauregard Sessions is now the Attorney General of the United States. Since the Department of Justice has a new
dickhead, it should have a new seal to reflect his values.
