Got a problem and need a scapegoat? No problem, just charge it to Trump. That’s what the Democrats do after all.
In an interview on the Brian Lehrer Show, de Blasio condemned hate crimes but then redirected to Trump as the cause. Without any evidence. Disregarding the fact that we’ve seen a vast number of suspected hate crimes end up being hoaxes perpetrated by liberals attempting to associate Trump and the alt-right to the crimes.
The Hill reports:
“The challenge here is that a dynamic of hatred has been growing in this country over the last year or more.”
“It’s particularly come out in the open after the election. It’s clearly related to the rhetoric of Donald Trump and even other candidates during the presidential election that have unleashed forces of hate all over the country.”
It’s also worthy to. It’s that de Blasio is under investigation as we speak by the FBI. While he maintains his presumption of innocence he should tread lightly associating people with crimes when he has no evidence. I’m sure he’d appreciate the same level of deference.
