Suggested title: Charlottesville Victim’s Mother Speaks Out On What Trump Had To Say
Subheading: The mainstream media continues to butcher everything Trump has to say, but the victim’s mother provided a different perspective.
Heather Heyer lost her life on Saturday during protests in Charlottesville that got completely out of hand.
That’s the top story and overwhelming takeaway from the horrifying events of the weekend, but the mainstream press has chosen to present things in a different fashion.
The mainstream media has irresponsibly turned the story into a referendum on President Donald Trump.
Anything he has said in the wake of the tragedy has been parsed to death, and he has been completely raked over the coals for any number of things.
As the Independent Journal Review shares, the mother of the Heyer has offered up her thoughts on what Trump had to say.
The mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed while counter-protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville over the weekend, responded to President Donald Trump in a statement on Monday.
“Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred,” Susan Bro said in the statement. “My condolences also to the grieving families of the two state troopers and quick recovery for those injured.”
Here we have someone that was directly impacted by the tragic events, yet she was able to do a better job of placing things in perspective than those whose job it is to do just that.
During a press conference earlier in the day, Trump declared “racism is evil” and condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. He said the groups are “repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
He also offered some comforting words to Heyer’s family:
“Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief, and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love.”
That still wasn’t enough for the press. The narrative changed from blasting Trump for not saying enough to destroying him over saying too little, too late.
During the course of normal business, the actions off the mainstream media are nothing short of laughable. At the time of a national tragedy such as this one, the actions are downright irresponsible.
The mainstream media went out of its way to fan the flames that are already raging, and members of that contingent should frankly be ashamed of themselves for that behavior.
They’re not, and it will continue. If there were any doubts that the anti-Trump bias is ingrained in the media at frightening levels, the reporting on this story has beaten those doubts to a pulp.
