Desus and Mero Denounce Trump for Defending the 'Unite the Right' Rally

The VICELAND hosts rehash the president's troubling "many sides" statement about Charlottesville.

Over the last week, Donald Trump delivered a series of erratic responses to everything that went down in Charlottesville, Virginia. First he made his perplexing "many sides" comment, putting blame on both the Unite the Right rioters and counter-protesters, then followed it up with a scripted speech denouncing white supremacists. But at his most recent press briefing on Tuesday, Trump went back to blaming people "on many sides" and defended those who marched alongside violent neo-Nazis.

On Wednesday's episode of Desus & Mero, the hosts tore apart Trump's odd encounter with the press in which he name-called, made many false equivalencies, and treated the media like they were middle schoolers in detention.
