Melania Offers First White House
Comment on Charlottesville Violence

Daily Beast, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 8/12/2017 6:26:28 PM

Melania Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to denounce violent clashes at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, offering the White House´s first public comment on the matter before the president got around to it. “Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let´s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence,” Melania wrote. President Donald Trump issued his own slightly more vague statement a short time later. “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!” he wrote.

I don´t know why DB filed this under "Unexpected" but am glad they at least posted it without further snark.

There was to be a peaceful protest against the removal of the Robert E Lee statue in Charlottesville - it would have been peaceful if the counter protesters hadn´t tried to disrupt it. But, of course, the media doesn´t report it that way.

NEW YORK -- A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL. Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color. He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so

A BRIT who rushed to help a women stabbed in a bloody terror attack in Finland has said he is “not a hero” – as police reveal teen suspect is Moroccan. Two women were stabbed to death in the streets of Turku, with police revealing six others were injured, including several men who came to the aid of the victims, including a woman with a pram. [photos] The British man suffered minor injuries after being caught up in the rampage, with police saying the 18-year-old suspect – from Morocco, like those involved in the Barcelona terror attacks – had appeared to target women. Both women killed in the attack were Finnish, with others injured including an Italian national and two Swedes.

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley called on her staff this week to condemn and "isolate" hate groups, days after the violent white nationalist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., Reuters reported. In an email to staff at the United States mission to the U.N. Thursday, Haley, a former South Carolina governor, said the Charlottesville "took me back to sad days dealing with the Charleston tragedy in 2015" – a reference to the deadly shooting at an African-American Church in Charleston, S.C. that killed nine people dead. A copy of the email was viewed by Reuters. "Those who march spewing hate are few, but loud. We

United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer launched a full-fledged investigation into China´s alleged intellectual property theft on Friday, marking the Trump administration´s firmest actions yet against China´s trade practices. "After consulting with stakeholders and other government agencies, I have determined that these critical issues merit a thorough investigation," Lighthizer said in a statement. The announcement came four days after President Trump signed an executive memo authorizing the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to determine whether an investigation into China´s trade practices is necessary. China´s alleged theft of U.S. technology, music, films and other intellectual property has long been a

More than 300 of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin´s former Yale classmates are urging him to resign over President Trump´s comments on the violence in Charlottesville, Va. Members of the Yale class of 1985 wrote an open letter calling on Mnuchin to resign from the Treasury "immediately." "We do so today because President Trump has declared himself a sympathizer with groups whose values are antithetical to those values we consider fundamental to our sacred honor as Americans, as men and women of Yale, and as decent human beings," the letter reads.

President Trump is allowing his "little tiny ego" to get in the way of White House staffing decisions, according to conservative commentator Ann Coulter. "I´m ticked off at the Emperor God," Coulter told the Daily Beast, referring to Trump. After White House strategist Steve Bannon´s firing Friday, Coulter is warning Trump that he now must show "he didn´t get the good ideas from Bannon" by putting the "pedal-to-the-metal on deportations, the wall, that tax hike on people who make more than $5 million a year."

The Seattle Police Department trolled Infowars´ founder Alex Jones after the conspiracy theorist said he had hot coffee thrown in his face in the city. When a journalist asked the police department on Twitter whether any incident reports had been filed in relation to Jones´ visit to the city, the department mocked the Infowars host. "As far as we know, that could be an actor playing Alex Jones," the department joked. [ad] Jones accused "Jewish actors" of posing as KKK members in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.

Military leaders have hastened to denounce racism amid the furor over President Donald Trump’s defense of white supremacists who violently rallied last week around a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia. But they are also presiding over their own controversial symbols of the Confederacy — including 10 Army bases named for generals who commanded armies of the slave-holding South during the Civil War, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Rucker in Alabama. On Friday, a group of mostly African-American Democrats in the House proposed legislation that would require the defense secretary

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn said Friday he is giving up his role as a special adviser to President Donald Trump on regulatory reform, ending an association that had sparked an uproar among Democrats and raised ethics questions. In a statement posted on his website, Icahn said he had a conversation with Trump on Friday where the two agreed that he would cut ties with the administration. Icahn said he had received a number of inquiries about whether his role — which was informal and unpaid — would overlap with the duties of Neomi Rao, who was appointed as administrator of

Botswana president wants you to know that he is not intimidated by China. Ian Khama, president of the diamond-rich nation of less than two million people, stood up to the global power over the Dalai Lama’s planned visit to his county this week. “We are not your colony,” was the money quote of Khama’s account of his diplomatic standoff with China in recent weeks. The Dalai Lama was set to visit the capital Gaborone for Aug. 17 to 19, as part of what Botswana officials dubbed a “purely private” visit organized by the NGO Mind and Life Institute and

Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced the removal of monuments to Confederate figures as "sad" and "so foolish," days after white supremacists and neo-Nazis took to Charlottesville, Virginia, to violently protest the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate Gen.

An internal civil war is tearing at the fabric of Fox News. The events of the past week have brought the long-simmering conflict closer to the surface. The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something. Fox News Channel executives, staff, and on air talent are taking sides. The future direction of the right-of-center, fair and balanced Fox News approach to presenting the news may well be in serious doubt.

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor whom Trump has bashed relentlessly for more than two years, lashed out against him on Facebook for what he said was a hamfisted message during Tuesday´s press conference – and demanded a full-throated apology from the president.

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.
