Team Trump Demands Biden Stop Peddling Charlottesville Lie After Snopes Debunked It – RedState

As RedState’s Bonchie reported Sunday, the fact-checking site Snopes for reasons known only to themselves decided now would be a good time to debunk the myth that then-President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis and white supremacists “fine people” in Charlottesville, VA, in 2017.

Of course, anyone who pays attention to news sources other than the New York Times and MSNBC has known all along that Trump’s quote was bastardized to make it sound like he said something he didn’t actually say, but the mainstream media and the Biden team has run with the falsehood for years now.

Bonchie explains how the deceitful quote so moved Biden that it became the inspiration for his candidacy: 

Biden has repeatedly claimed that he decided to run against Donald Trump because the former president supposedly praised the neo-Nazis present at Charlottesville in 2017. At issue was a comment about “very fine people on both sides” that Trump made while reacting to the incident. Biden took that and made it the centerpiece of his campaign announcement, with the first words coming out of his mouth being “Charlottesville, Virginia.” 

Since then, the idea that Trump “praised” neo-Nazis has become canon on the left. Even in 2024, the White House still repeats the allegation. There’s just one problem: It was never true.

It was always false:

What the ‘Fine People’ Hoax Means for America 

Although conservatives have pointed out for years that it was a (malevolently) manufactured controversy, now that Snopes has debunked it, Team Trump is calling on the Biden campaign to quit their lying: 

Joe Biden’s campaign must end any advertising that pushes this lie because President Trump has, once again, been proven right!

Just like the Hunter Biden laptop “Russian disinformation” lie, the Russia collusion hoax, and so many other examples of the media obscuring or flat-out misstating the truth, the Charlottesville narrative has always been provably false, yet the press mostly sits quietly as Biden repeats it over and over. What a beautiful moment it would be indeed if Trump called him out for it during their scheduled June 27 debate. I would love to see him squirm, although since he seemingly has no shame, he’d probably just shrug it off and continue on to the next lie (maybe about his uncle being eaten by cannibals).

All anyone had to do was listen. At approximately the 2:05 mark, Trump makes himself very clear: “You had people—and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists—they should be condemned totally—but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay?”

Mic drop.
