For months now, Joe Biden has been pushing the complete lie that Trump was referring to white supremacists when he said there were ‘fine people on both sides’ in Charlottesville.
Trump condemned white supremacists specifically, but Biden has repeated this lie over and over again with no pushback from the media.
Despite smearing Trump repeatedly in this way (and his supporters), Biden now wants people to believe he is some kind of unity candidate.
What a ridiculous joke.
Pollak: After Campaigning on Charlottesville Hoax, Joe Biden Gives ‘Unity’ Speech in Gettysburg
Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, the site of one of the most important battles of the Civil War.
Ironically, in August, President Donald Trump proposed giving a speech at Gettysburg, after left-wing rioters spent the summer tearing down national monuments, including to Civil War heroes and abolitionists. CNN and other critics suggested, absurdly, that Trump was on the side of the Confederacy.
No such skepticism for Biden.
But there should be. Because from the start of his campaign, Biden has flogged a lie: the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax.
The “hoax” is the claim that Trump called violent neo-Nazis and white supremacists “very fine people.” In fact, he said the neo-Nazis and white supremacists should be “condemned totally.” When he said “very fine people,” Trump was referring to non-violent protesters on both sides of the issue of the removal of a local Confederate statue.
The hoax is a divisive lie.
“Our trust in each other is ebbing,” Biden lamented in Gettysburg. He should know.

It’s amazing to hear Joe Biden – a Democrat – accusing others of stoking discord as the members of his party burn down American cities and harass peaceful people in the streets.
Of course, Biden was greeted by Trump supporters when he arrived in Pennsylvania for his speech:

Here’s a question.
Why is Biden campaigning in Pennsylvania if he is really winning this race?
