Watch ‘Don’t be a hypocrite like your president’: Ex-White House aide shuts down Trump booster over Charlottesville

During a wide-ranging press gaggle Thursday, Trump once again revisited his claim people “on both sides” were responsible for the violence in Charlottesville last month. “I said, ‘You’ve got some very bad people on the other side,’ which is true,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One. Discussing the president’s claim Friday, LeVell argued Trump “has made it very clear” he condemns the violence in Charlottesville, before adding, “I want to caution the media to stop giving them life.” “It has no substance and is counter-productive especially what’s going on in the world today of being threatened and blown up by North Korea,” LeVell argued, later adding, “President Trump is a really good man. I watch a lot of people come on the show and try to articulate his heart. I actually know him. He’s a very compassionate man who cares about people.”

“It’s disheartening to see this narrative being played out to put President Trump in this type of, you know, this category which is totally false,” LeVell said, describing labels like “racist” and “white supremacist” as “totally wrong, totally wrong.” “He’s condemning violence on all sides,” LeVell said. “Condemning violence on all sides. Everyone.” “It was starting to die down,” Boykin said. “He brought it up again. He didn’t have to bring it up, and because of that, we are discussing it right now. When the president says that both sides have bad people on it and doesn’t focus on the people who actually killed someone in Charlottesville, he’s reigniting an old injury, a new wound if you will.” “I made a list yesterday of all the people that Donald Trump has labeled racist recently on Twitter,” Boykin said. “The list includes Barack Obama, Bryant Gumbel, Tierre, Tavis Smiley, the TV show ‘Blackish.’ He calls these people racist and Trump gets upset when somebody attacks him and calls him a racist or white supremacist. The reason people call him that is because they see his behavior and the pattern of behavior that goes back before he took office, when he was sued by the federal government, when he was leading the charge against the Central Park five, when he was attacking Barack Obama for five years, the racist attack on his birth certificate.” “The one Hillary [Clinton] started,” LeVell shot back.
“You’re filibustering now,” Boykin said as LeVell offered winding response about tax cuts and social strive. “I don’t know where to begin, but it’s not about tax cuts or all that stuff,” Boykin replied. “Start with the truth,” LeVell said. “Whatever, you’re interrupting me now,” Boykin said. “We have one side, white supremacists, KKK members, neo-Nazis.” “Here we go,” LeVell said with a sigh. “Would you let me finish this time? Don’t be a hypocrite like your president.”
