President Donald Trump offered a dizzying, if not confused, explanation of his comments that followed the deadly protest in Charlottesville this past weekend, but also touched on a number of issues that are sure to be parsed and discussed on cable news outlets in the coming hours, days, millennia.

Bruni called it an “act of self-immolation by a man by a man who can’t take criticism,” without the flames. He went on to say that Trump “obviously meant what he said on Saturday,” (when he blamed the violence on “many sides”) adding that Trump’s comment yesterday, he “obviously only said what he said because he was being made to.”
