nearvideo critics try to connect new Zealand mosque gunman’s motive to Trump policy
The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway and Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen butted heads during the Special report “All-Star” panel about President Donald Trump as a reaction to the anti-Muslim shootings took place in new Zealand last week.
On Friday, President Trump expressed his condolences on Twitter for the 49 people who were shot in the mosques by a white nationalist, but later rejected the idea to reporters that the white nationalism was “on the rise.”
Thiessen began by calling the effort by Democrats and the media to associate the trump card for the terrorist attack “absurd,” but insisted that he is “vulnerable” for such criticism, since he is not yet “definitively rejected, the alt-right” in the United States
Hemingway threw, told Thiessen, what he said was “not true” and pointed to Trump’s remarks to Charlottesville, where he said, “I speak of neo-Nazis and white nationalists, because they should be condemned,” something you noticed was from the same event as his “both sides” comments.
“If he condemned the people with the name, it is not mentioned, and that is something that has been done by the media, a very poor job, to say the truth,” Hemingway said Thiessen.
To double, the Washington Post columnist, to say that the call for alt-right “to” the President over his failure to condemn them to the house Democrats ” failed only condemn anti-Semitism in the midst of the controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
“We are all responsible for the control of our movements and Donald Trump has done just that, if it Thiessen said the alt + right,” the panel.
Hemingway called it “frustrating” when the trump of the condemnation of neo-Nazis and white supremacists a group going is not confirmed, and stressed, as the shooter said in his Manifesto that he wanted the media to have these conversations, “to blame certain people for what he has done.”

“The fact that this type of conversation that we have now, if it is this attack, we should talk about it, the people who were murdered, and the victims and what they went through,” Hemingway added.
Meanwhile, NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson pointed to how the conservative “right” is pushed, the Democrats and President Barack Obama to call from Islamic terrorism, and that “for the same reason,” President trump should be called, and the rejection of white superiority “through his name.”
