Gary Cohn Criticizes Donald Trump’s Response to Charlottesville Protests

White House economic adviser Gary Cohn challenged Donald Trump’s response to Charlottesville, insisting that the president had to do a better job condemning white supremacists.

“I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities,” Cohn said in an interview with the Financial Times.

Cohn aligned his views with the establishment media, asserting that the violent Antifa counter-protesters were “standing up for equality and freedom” while the protesters defending Robert E. Lee’s statue were all white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK.

“Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK,” he said.

Gary Cohn ain't too bright. I hope he has his resume polished and circulating.

Opinions Gary are like a-holes, everyone has one - but it doesn't mean you use it all the time. I'm talking your about opinion of course!

Anyone like him who thinks Antifa is fighting for peoples civil rights is a POS and should be fired.

It wouldn't matter to these ignorant bozo's if Trump frankly and directly, in the strongest terms, and by name, called these groups totally despicable and against all that America stands for, would it?
Uh huh. He's DONE THAT.
MANY times.
Were they not listening or do they just want to whip up some ignorance?
For reporters and writers, they don't seem to be up on current events.
Or facts.

Keep cheering.
