In response to what other members of congress have called an act of domestic terrorism by American Neo-nazis, Donald Trump said, “[w]e condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence that’s on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country.”

Many sides?

Many sides!

What on Earth is Trump talking about?

I’ve wracked my brain, and here’s what I came up with:

  1. Donald Trump is tone deaf, and suffers from a serious deficit of emotional intelligence;
  2. Donald Trump is sympathetic to neo-nazis and other white nationalist groups;
  3. Donald Trump is an idiot; or
  4. All of the above.

I’ll let you decide.

It’s the 14th of August, 2017. It’s not a normal Monday.
