11:31 AM: Sen. Scott says Trump should 'correct' comments on white supremacists.

Source: Washington Post

Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), the only Black Republican in the Senate, said Wednesday that Trump should “correct” his comments in response to a debate question about whether he would condemn self-described white supremacists.

Scott spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill a day after Trump, in response to a question from debate moderator Chris Wallace, refused to condemn self-proclaimed white supremacists.

Asked whether he found Trump’s comments concerning, Scott said, “I think he misspoke in response to Chris Wallace’s comment. He was asking Chris what he wanted to say. I think he misspoke. I think he should correct it.”

“If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak,” the senator added.


We’re starting to see some Republican reaction to Trump’s refusal to condemn White supremacy in the United States. So far, most, like Tim Scott are saying that the President “misspoke.” Funny that. The Proud Boys heard him loud and clear. They’re celebrating.

6. Yeap, as if he didn't know that trump is a racist and doesn't really like him

Hey Scott, trump is not in to you, or any other non-white person for that matter. For Scott to take this long to realize it his intelligence has to be in question.

Although I must say, trump doesn't really like to be white, does he? Did anyone notice that trump looked more orange last night? I thought it was my TV, but Biden looked the same as he always has and so did Wallace, so donny must have stayed longer in the tanning table yesterday, he needed a stronger orange completion.

15. What is beyond my comprehension is how an African-American can be a Republican.

The entire party is dedicated to contempt for Blacks who they disregard a subhuman beings. They only use misguided fools like him as useful idiots that they laugh about. It is the same for the Evangelicals and Pentecostals. I have wondered if people like him really believe that they accept him as an equal? I have lived in the South and have many relatives who express exactly those sentiments.

16. You coward

You should know by now that he won't do that. And you should know by now that your party no longer has a shred of decency in its attitude toward anyone other than rich white people.

Grow a spine. Condemn trump's overt message to a domestic terror group and switch parties. If you lose next time around, you lose. But you lose with your soul and dignity scarred but intact. If you don't, then the blood that RW terrorists shed in the coming months and beyond will be on your hands.

21. the loathsome Jason Miller was spinning this like a tornado on MTP with Chuck Todd

Just like his boss, he made it very difficult for Todd to get a word in edgewise. To Chuck's credit, he wasn't buying it.
