Congressman: White supremacist and civil rights activists equally ‘disgusting’
Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy tried to equate the civil rights activism of Black Lives Matter with white supremacists.
In response to CNN guest host Jim Sciutto’s point that Trump didn’t quickly dismiss his support from white nationalists, Duffy pivoted and tried to pin the blame on President Barack Obama.
Duffy said that while he didn’t share the same viewpoints as white supremacists, Obama should have condemned “Black Lives Matter” and anti-Trump protesters for alleged violent incidents across the country after Trump was elected earlier this month…
SCIUTTO: You’re equating Americans protesting a politician with outright hate and bigotry from a group that was using the Hitler salute to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory and are nothing more than white supremacists? I mean, that’s not a fair comparison.
DUFFY: No, no, no. Both are disgusting, for different ways.
