    David Duke was talking about “taking back America” like Europeans didn’t strip the land away from the Native Americans who occupied the land before they arrived. Smh🤦‍♀️

    Dear America,
    You guys need to get rid of this guy asap. I’ll hope things will not boil up in future. You do not deserve this bs. Hope you guys get back on track soon. Black, white, brown all Americans. Salute from Germany✌️😐

    These bigots claiming “whites built America”….No. Slave labor built America.

  4. Erin Fisher says:

    Well unfortunately, it comes as no surprise that Trump didn’t want to speak out against those groups! He’s so racist! Plus, they are his supporters and it would be super hard for him to disavow his ‘fans.’ It looked like he was crying inside when he made the statement against them, like he truly didn’t want to be saying it. I’m so sorry for my American friends and I hope the you have the most amazing people to vote for next time!!

  5. MrCrockaG says:

    Glad I got here before the Trump supporters trying to explain how Nazis aren’t really that bad.

  6. Pokerface says:

    At this point, are we really surprised when Trump fails at acting like a decent human being?

  7. brawl2063 says:

    If Trump’s response wasn’t an indication that he is a racist, Neo-Nazi then I don’t know what is.

  8. Luigi Bianco says:

    (a) White people.
    (b) All freedom-loving people everywhere.
    (c) All your poor, your huddled masses, your tempest tossed.
    (d) Anyone who completes the paperwork and takes the oath.
    (e) Everyone!
    If your answer was (a) then you are a racistnaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
    Diversity and multiculturalism are codewords for White genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  9. Jacob says:

    He has literally been condemning the neo Nazis for two days. Can you guys not read a fucking tweet.

  10. Maeve Hartnett says:

    I literally love Seth Meyers

    I get why everyone’s getting on Trump about not calling out the Neo Nazis until two days later, but on that same curve, Obama never stated the term “Islamic Terrorism” in eight years of being president, and the evidence supporting such a term is massive. Would you guys have the same reaction if Obama was in the GOP?

    I’m no Trump guy, but cmon guys, think a little bit. Instead of coming together and focusing towards bigger threats like NK or potential trouble in the Middle East, y’all are dogging on the president for delaying for two days on condemning the KKK. Albeit he should’ve called them out immediately but still, he knows they’re one of Americas domestic enemies.

    A Closer Look is anything but. It’s more like putting a big blue filter on everything, just like how Info Wars put a big crimson one over current events time after time.

    Disappointed how we can’t recognize both sides are at fault here. Both the KKK/Neo Nazis and Antifa/BLM are the true criminals here and all groups should be treated as such.

    You can’t bring together a Fourth Reich and you can’t erase history just so it suits your feelings and account for “muh reparations”.


  12. Dookje says:

    Not all Trump supporters are nazis, but all nazis are Trump supporters… You really wanna wear that red maga hat when it might aswell be replaced by a white hood?

  13. CB BC says:

    “Other hate groups” is code for BLM and Antifa.
    He’s still f%%king doing it.
    Donald J. Trump is the leader of the American White supremacist movement, and any congressperson who _continues_ to refuse to impeach his treasonous a$$ is assisting that movement in its evil goals.

  14. Joe Estrada says:

    All you left NUTS are soooo PATHETIC…. If his words arnt perfect you start crying…..if his words are perfect you start crying………
    Why don’t you Losers just go back in your safe space….. (your closet) …….and stay there for 8 Damm years……OMG.
    Fake freakn news…..Bunch of SISI LALAS i swear…….

  15. Ty Brady says:

    Yet it took Trump less than an hour for Trump to condemn the CEO of Merck for resigning from a presidential board.

  16. freaker126 says:

    the worst president ever and people still support him. they support him during the presidential race. they supported him now, even after blunders after blunders. he, should be fired by now. How the hell he’s till representing the u.s.a is beyond me. :p

  17. Super Duper says:

    It was supposed to be a peaceful protest, and was, but Antifa and Blm decided to come and disrupt the peace. The cops didn’t do their jobs and allowed the violence to escalate. The peaceful protesters were attack with acid and other stuff.

  18. Shane Ryan says:

    Are any of my fellow progressives going to condemn this radical “antifa” group for carrying weapons, and committing violence, arson, and vandalism? Counter-protesting is counter-productive. It gives white supremacists power to recruit new followers. “Antifa” doesn’t care because it gives them the attention that they crave.

    im not trying to be funny but that bannon fellow is hideous..i shiver every time i see his pic

  20. Brittany Boss says:
