Donald Trump's 'both sides' comment has been turned into a brilliantly cutting meme

Eh, no.

THERE WERE MANY, many bizarre moments in Donald Trump’s press conference in New York last night, but there’s been one moment that’s stood out amidst all the noise.

The Charlottesville attack was the main topic of conversation – and the President reiterated the stance he took over the weekend, where he condemned the violence on “many sides.”

This time he said that “there’s blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it” and that “you also had people that were very fine people on both sides”

Constantly sitting on the fence on the issue of blame (even though it was a white supremacist march and attack) and saying that there are “fine people” on the Nazi side didn’t go down well, naturally.

So the “both sides” comment has become a meme – and people have been using it to utterly ridicule Trump’s position

Equating two sides that don’t deserve comparison is the theme

Some people got historical

Trump used the phrase alt-right at the press conference yesterday.

Throughout history, there has been blame on both sides always

Trump’s comments don’t hold up to logic

And the memes kept coming

VIOLENCE ON BOTH SIDES

Everyone is now just waiting for more quotes that follow this train of thought
