    Well, I think this says it all. Donald Trump's team finally tried to contact Susan Bro (mother of Heather Heyer) on Wednesday, and she was so busy at that point that she hadn't been able to catch their voicemail until Thursday night. Which is unfortunate for them, because she managed to catch some of Trump's speeches in the interim. She now states that she has not talked to Trump, nor is she going to.

    “I hadn't really watched the news until last night and I'm not talking to the president now, I'm sorry, after what he said about my child,” she said. “And it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.”​

    the fact he keeps saying "terrible acts by both sides" is lumping every legitimate protester with groups like Antifa or whatever the tumpeteers are claiming.

    Here's a lesson. EVERYONE SHOULD BE PROTESTING NAZIS!. if they showed up on my street, I would be out there protesting nazis. I'm not some Antifa member. I'm not some commie. I'm not some violent person looking to start a fight.

    I'm anti-nazi! Being Anti-nazi, the President of the United States has just lumped me in with violent offenders and people who would see me dead.

    Trump... Go **** yourself

    I think we need to begin force feeding you "the pills" or mixing them into your tacos.

    My theory: He took on his unique "super"power in his teenage years when bitten by radioactive troll.

    I think it would make more sense if he was bitten by someone electrocuted - it would explain the LOCK THEM UP.

    This is what Trump supporters fail to see. Protesting Nazis isn't stirring up trouble. Its the moral thing to do. You cannot just stand by when there are Nazis saluting and shouting racist and hateful things.

    One last tongue-in-cheek off-topic friendly jibe:

    The Electrocuted Troll. Sounds like a Northern European psychedelic death metal band... or the pub they'd play in.

    The issue is when, within the protesters, you have a group like Antifa mingled in with the others.

    no it isn't. That's a deflection. The very existence of Nazi's is to "stir up trouble" ..

    I don't endorse Antifa's actions. But at the very same time, deflecting to attack Antifa for participating in an Anti-Nazi protest is defense of the Nazi protest.

    that's not a side you want to be on. You should be standing alongside EVERYONE ELSE IN PROTESTING NAZIS

    I think Susan Bro characterised what Trump said (I don't think he ever said that Heather Heyes was violent, or even implied that), but I hope people just let her be, given the grief she must be experiencing. It would be perfectly valid for her not to speak to Trump simply because he did not condemn the white supremacists definitely and swiftly.

    Still can't believe this murder took place in my home state.

    Believe it or not you can be against Nazi's and still point out that a certain group associated with your cause doesn't help your cause.

    Agree to a point. I think the issue comes down to the equating the two or pitting one against the other in the context of what happened - and how it is being spoken about (by at least Trump).

    Antifa may not be innocent - but they didn't kill Heyer. Nazis did.
