According to a Fox News host on Wednesday, Shepard Smith respectively, the network failed to find a single Republican willing to step up and defend President Trump’s comments on Charlottesville violence. During his show “Shepard Smith Reporting”, the news anchor said about President’s comments over the weekend:
“Our booking team — and they’re good — reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today. Let’s be honest, Republicans don’t often really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that.
We worked very hard at it throughout the day, and we were unsuccessful. And of those who are condemning the president’s condemnable actions, I’ve not heard any prominent leaders, former presidents, members of the House or the Senate use his name while speaking in generalities,”
Shepard Smith’s comments arrive in the aftermath of President Trump’s press conference on Tuesday, during which he backed his claims from last weekend about who was to blame for the Charlottesville violence, i.e. both sides: Antifa/BLM and the KKK/neo-Nazis. President Trump slammed the mainstream media for painting with a broad brush all the rally attendants in Charlottesville on Saturday, as the MSM keeps suggesting that all of them were racists, white supremacists, Nazis and KKK:
“You had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest [against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue] and very legally protest. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch.”
It’s interesting to see how the mainstream media and the Democrats seem to believe that groups like BLM and Antifa, i.e. people wearing black uniforms and masks while beating people in the street with sticks on multiple occasions should not be condemned, as they’re on “the good side of history”. President Trump told the truth on Tuesday and the Republicans are total cowards for not supporting their president.
Here’s a reporter (still) working for the failing New York Times describing what happened at the Charlottesville protests:
2. The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding “antifa” beating white nationalists being led out of the park 2/2

And what’s even funnier is that Robert E. Lee was a Democrat. Basically, all these statues the snowflakes want to remove in 2017 were Democrats who owned slaves, not Republicans. Also, the KKK was a Democrat creation, not to mention that by 1861, every single slave owner was a registered Democrat.
