Trump's defense of a neo-Nazi rally crossed a line for many Republicans.

It took President Trump’s defense of a neo-Nazi rally for many Republicans in Congress to publicly distance themselves from the White House, after months of brushing off his impolitic behavior and tweets.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said white supremacist bigotry is “counter to all this country stands for.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “There are no good neo-Nazis,” an apparent reference to Trump’s claim that there were some “very fine people” among the torch-carrying white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., last week.

Rank-and-file Republicans churned out statements backing away from Trump, and outspoken voices in the party began wondering aloud Wednesday whether Republicans still carry the mantle of the party of Abraham Lincoln.

“We can’t claim to be the party of Lincoln if we equivocate in condemning white supremacy,” tweeted Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.).

The facts are:

1. Trump has never said there were "good people" at any Neo-Nazi rally. Specifically in the case of Charlottesville, he was referring to other groups present at that rally that had been protesting the taking down of a statue. He specifically stressed this point later on during his press-conference, saying "I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”

2. LA Times is using Nazi propaganda methods.

After Trump’s remarks drew a thank-you tweet from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) sounded off.

“Many Republicans do not agree with and will fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world,” Graham said.

Pathetic. The date on your video is 19th August 2017, which was a full three days after the entire country turned against him for publicly defending neo-Nazis, and a full two days after the story in the OP was published. He did a complete U-turn because he had lost the support of his own party.
