This is exactly what I was talking about the in last post where Trump was defending his Charlottesville comments.
Pathetic Jim Acosta ‘fact checks’ Trump’s comments from this morning, suggesting he was talking about Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists:
Trump defends his “very fine people” comments on Charlottesville: “People were there protesting the taking down of the monument of Robert E. Lee. Everybody knows that.” Fact check: There were many neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

But as we pointed out that’s clearly not true.
And folks on Twitter were quick to point that out as well:
Fact check this:
“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”
That’s what @realDonaldTrump said that day and you were standing 10 feet away from him.

Trump specifically said he was not talking about neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

• Trump openly condemned the neo-Nazis & white supremacists
• called them “criminals and thugs”
• said “racism is evil”
• said those responsible would be “held fully accountable”
This is brazen revision of history that would make the Katyn murderers proud. https://t.co/Ljf69zXN2z
