For days now, we’ve been inundated with a turbocharged version of a familiar argument: That President Trump is some sort of white supremacist sending coded messages to his secret, racist base.
It’s a crock, certainly, and has been a crock from the get-go. It was the most offensive thing that the left could try to pin on him after their Russian collusion narrative slipped away at the end of Robert Mueller’s dramatically-arduous investigation.
On Tuesday night, during the first of three scheduled presidential debates, President Trump was asked to condemn white supremacy, and his answer wasn’t stellar, to put it lightly.
Chris Wallace: "Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down…"

The subsequent denials by the White House Press Secretary were a little too ambiguous as well, and soon there were some heavy-handed demands for the Commander in Chief to make his views on white supremacy crystal clear.
He did just that on Sean Hannity’s program on Thursday night.
“I’ve said it many times, and let me be clear again: I condemn the [Ku Klux Klan]. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing. But I condemn that,” Trump said onSean Hannity‘s Fox News show.
If this doesn’t put the issue to bed, then nothing will, and we will find ourselves rehashing this issue time again, whenever the leftist media decides they have nothing else to attack Trump with.
