Twitter Wars: President Trump Blasts Graham’s “Disgusting Lie” on Charlottesville Comments

When all is said and done, President Trump’s main weapon against mainstream media disinformation remains Twitter/social media. And seeming unable to let it go, the POTUS unleashed a series of Twitter truth-bombs on Thursday morning, blasting South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham following the latter’s criticism on Donald Trump’s comments with regard to who was to blame for the Charlotesville violence.

It’s interesting to see how President Trump’s new Chief of Staff Kelly seems incapable of stopping the now-famous Twitter wars, but let that go. Here’s what the POTUS had to say on Thursday morning:

Trump’s very harsh reaction on Twitter was provoked by South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham’s comments on Wednesday, when he claimed that the POTUS’ reaction on Charlottesville violence was dividing the country. Lindsay Graham went on to saying that Donald Trump had the nerve to make a moral equivalency between the violence started by Antifa/Black Lives Matter activists and white supremacists/neo-Nazis/the KKK.

As if the violence on the left is a good thing (the Antifa/Soros-sponsored BLM initiated violence in Charlottesville by the way, it’s their modus operandi) whilst only the so-called ‘right wing’ (KKK were a DEM creation and Nazis were leftists by the way, national-socialists) violence is to be condemned.

Lindsey Graham said on Wednesday:

“I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency. Many Republicans … will fight back against the idea that the Party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.”

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook also sided with left-wing-only violence, as he said in an email to employees:

I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights.

The POTUS correctly finds moral equivalency in the violent behaviors from both the right and the left.  Only agenda-driven zealots of either extreme would deny the truth of his comments

    The leftist reactions make me think I’m living on a different planet. Trump never said white nationalists are fine people. He said not everyone there was a white nationalist.
