CNN’s King: ‘A Very Welcome Statement’ By the President But Where Was That One Week Ago? Who Was That?
KING: "Amen and thank you, Mr. President. Strong words, saying violence has no place, stand down, if you support me you are not representing me, you’re attacking me, stop it, don’t do it, stand down. Great. Where was that one week ago today? Where was that one week ago today when thousands of his supporters acting on his words went to the United States Capitol and the leader of the House Republicans, Kevin McCarthy, others were calling him saying Mr. President, deliver a statement, go public, go on camera, tell your people to back down, tell your people to stand down, tell your people to go home. So this is a fabulous statement from the President of the United States. There are things in here some may quibble with. But where was this one week ago? Where was this after Charlottesville when he said that, you know, there were good people on both sides? Where was a strongly worded statement like this leaving no ambiguity?”
