'It Was a Moral Disgrace': Krauthammer Spars with Ingraham Over Trump, Charlottesville
Charles Krauthammer and Laura Ingraham exchanged opposing views over President Trump's Q&A about the violence in Charlottesville, Va.
Ingraham said Trump would have been better served Tuesday to continue talking about infrastructure and not allow the press to "trap" him into talking about the unrest.
"To critique what he did today on the grounds that it distracts from the agenda... is a cop out," Krauthammer said of Ingraham's position.
"What Trump did today was a moral disgrace," Krauthammer said. "He reverted back to Saturday."
"Monday was a hostage tape," he said of Trump's second Charlottesville statement, "[it] was his aide speaking."
Ingraham said Trump was upset with left-wing attempts to "tear down history" by desecrating monuments to Confederate figures and others.
"[Trump's remarks] will never be enough for the people who despise him and his agenda," she said.
Krauthammer responded that Trump did not take time to specify hate groups like the KKK and white supremacists because it was "not in his heart" to see the rioting as a one-sided affair.
"I would prefer to leave them up but if they become symbols... of neo-Nazim and KKK" I would take them down, Krauthammer said the "alt-right" co-opting Confederate monuments.
