Everyone from Jimmy Fallon, to Dan Rather to the mother of Heather Heyer, the woman killed last weekend in Charlottesville, have been talking about what Donald Trump has and hasn’t been saying about what happened in Virginia.

He refused to call out the alt-right and KKK. He talked about violence “on all sides”. He never mentioned Heather Heyer by name. And last night came what many are calling the most shocking words to come out of Donald Trump’s mouth so far – and God knows that’s saying a lot.

None of it matters.

Demanding that Donald Trump condemn the alt-right and it’s agenda makes about as much sense as someone whose husband beats the shit out of her staying because: “He says he loves me.

He doesn’t. He never will. And if you don’t find a way to get away, chances are you’ll end up dead.
