Following the events over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, the left has come out in force to condemn President Donald Trump for his response to the violence. Just as their outrage reached a fever pitch, Fox News’ Jesse Watters revealed Hillary Clinton’s sick Benghazi secret, and now, the hypocritical Trump-haters are no longer laughing.
According to Daily Mail, as Trump traveled to his home in New York City at the start of the week, angry protesters gathered outside of Trump Tower with homemade signs bearing the message, “Two days too late,” in reference to the amount of time the president waited before issuing a statement which condemned “white supremacy,” specifically.
However, Watters pointed out a major hypocrisy that should cause anyone on the left to think twice about their outrage over Trump’s response to Charlottesville. Indeed, liberals seem to have forgotten how long it took former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to respond to crises of far greater magnitude.
“There’s a lot of hypocrisy going on here,” Watters said on The Five. “Hillary Clinton waited 2 weeks after Benghazi to call that terrorism. If Trump had blamed Charlottesville on a [phony] video, maybe he would have gotten a free pass.” Watters was, of course, referencing Clinton’s manufactured narrative that a blasphemous YouTube video inspired Muslims to attack the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, which led to the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
“President Obama waited four days during Ferguson while that city burned, and he was [vacationing] in Martha’s Vineyard,” continued Watters, lending further evidence that the current leftist outrage is deeply hypocritical. “Obama also called [Islamic] terrorism ‘workplace violence,’ so it’s hard to be lectured about word games from the left,” Watters added.
“Just because [Trump] didn’t name names doesn’t make him a racist. It just opened up the door for people to unfairly smear him as a racist,” said Watters, according to BizPacReview. “You had both sides coming into the town armed to the teeth … they wanted to rumble.”
Indeed, it was only after counter-protesters from groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter showed up on Saturday that things took a turn for the worse. Before then, the crowd was nothing more than a bunch of college kids wielding tiki torches. Had Antifa and BLM stayed home, there would have been no bloodshed at all.
Liberal outrage over President Trump’s response to Charlottesville is sorely misplaced. However, we’ve come to expect this from the misguided fools on the left, who seem incapable of any legitimate self-reflection whatsoever.
