“How Many Lights Do You See?” The Left’s Redefinition of Reality

No Good People in Charlottesville

  The talk that is seemingly going all around the world centers on President Trump’s remarks at an unscheduled press conference about the Charlottesville, Virginia rioting last weekend. The remarks in full are not being questioned. Trump stated that there was blame to be attached to both sides of the rioting. That is correct.
