Combative Trump at Press Conference: Does the Alt-Left Bear Any Responsibility For Their Own Violence?

Full presser here.

YouTube link here.

Some of the things he says:

* When asked about a claim that the "alt-right" is pushing attacks against McMasters, Trump says, "Why said that? You mean Senator McCain? The one who voted against Obamacare?"

* He then asks the press to define "the alt-right," and asks about the "alt-left which came charging at them."

* Notes that there's a very violent "alt-left" and the media refuses to even mention that. Goes on: "You had a group on the other side who came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent."

* Tells a guy -- probably Jim Acosta -- to shut up, then calls him "Fake News." It's something like "You quiet down FakeNews."

* On statues, which Jim Acosta, I'm given to understand, is a great fan of, and leftists pulling them down, wants to know if George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are next.

* The media continued to ask many arguments on behalf of their pet stormtroopers, "antifa." People asked arguments about the "alt-left" (antifa) and the white supremacists not being "on the same moral plane." The media are obviously great fans of antifa, and is not even pretending to pretend they're not great fans.

* On statues being pulled down, and whether George Washington is next: "They're changing our culture, they're changing our culture."

* I'm sure Steven Hayes is getting ready to smear Mollie Hemingway as living in an "alternate reality" again, even though there is video of black-clad antifa clubbing the shit out of people with short-sticks and bats. A well-trained dog understands it is meant to bite its master's enemies, and never its master's friends.

* He spoke about infrastructure and reducing permitting time from 17 years to 2 years. Asked at the end what he thought would help racial healing, he returned to that topic: "Jobs," he said.
