Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, September 04, 2018

President Trump reportedly called his condemnation of white supremacists after the deadly 2017 Charlottesville rally the "biggest f---king mistake" he had ever made, according to an excerpt from Bob Woodward's new book that was obtained by The Washington Post. Trump faced widespread criticism after he initially said that "both sides" were to blame for the violence that broke out at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., last August. He later condemned white supremacists and neo-Nazis at the urging of his advisers, according to Woodward.

Trump:Condemning Deplorables was ‘biggest mistake I've made'

@#3 ... Headline is a damn lie. ...

How would you summarize it?

Bob Woodward's new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown' of Trump's presidency

...Cohn came to regard the president as "a professional liar" and threatened to resign in August 2017 over Trump's handling of a deadly white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Cohn, who is Jewish, was especially shaken when one of his daughters found a swastika on her college dorm room.

Trump was sharply criticized for initially saying that "both sides" were to blame. At the urging of advisers, he then condemned white supremacists and neo-Nazis but almost immediately told aides, "That was the biggest ------- mistake I've made" and the "worst speech I've ever given," according to Woodward's account.

When Cohn met with Trump to deliver his resignation letter after Charlottesville, the president told him, "This is treason," and persuaded his economic adviser to stay on. Kelly then confided to Cohn that he shared Cohn's horror at Trump's handling of the tragedy -- and shared Cohn's fury with Trump....

it seems to me that your statement could be correct in two ways:

1) The headline does not reflect the content of the article. This is plainly nonsense; the headline reflects the substance of the article.

2) Trump did not say what the article claims he said. Neither you nor I know whether Trump said it, consequently you have absolutely no facts to support your contention that it is a lie and therefore no basis for your post

I hope this post helps you to understand how thinking works.

Article linked to by the OP (unsurisingly) left out some pertinent information:

Woodward describes how White House aides were relieved [after the second speech], and chief of staff John Kelly encouraged staff to tell the President what a good job he did.

But then Trump turned on the TV.

One Fox News commentator gave Trump praise but also added, "That's almost an admission of 'Okay, I was wrong.'" Then Fox News correspondent Kevin Corke said: "Some 48 hours into the biggest domestic challenge of his young presidency, Mr. Trump has made a course correction."
Trump exploded at the coverage, Woodward reports. "That was the biggest ------- mistake I've made," the President told Porter. "You never make those concessions. You never apologize. I didn't do anything wrong in the first place. Why look weak?"

Why let context get in the way of a good narrative?

His words are videotaped well-documented transcribed they are simply undeniable.

But Trump was able to create the term "Alt-Left" which isn't even a thing, but that doesn't stop his toadies from parroting his lies. So I think Trump is wrong here. This was a win for him.

Nope, but he loves it when people mischaracterize his comments like that.

And Dr Billy Wayne Ruddick insists he actually said "very feline people", and in the unedited version of the tape he turns to the camera and says "a cat is fine too!"

And it's no surprise the usual alt-right rubes that support this racist Orange Traitor come in and white knight for their Fuhrer. ....and then they will turn around and claim they themselves are not racist! Then again a few of them claim to be lawyers when they are no such thing.

So he admitted he thinks Nazis are good people.

There really isn't a good way this ends for Trump.

The context is that he said it and meant it.

Trump needs every single nazi slime and Klan coward he can scrape from the soiled rump of the white race to perpetuate his fraudulent occupancy of our White House.
