Axelrod: Trump Was ‘Bleaching’ White Supremacists’ Robes and ‘Shining Their Shields’

Tuesday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” former Obama adviser David Axelrod said President Donald Trump’s comments at today’s press conference were not only “sending dog whistles to white supremacists and Neo-Nazis,” but also “bleaching their white robes” and “shining their shields.”

Axelrod said, ‘Listen, this press conference was in every way, shape and form a car wreck for the president. It showed a guy who is melting down. It showed a guy who is small minded, intemperate, and sending dog whistles to white supremacists and Neo-Nazis, which is why they have thanked him for his comments.”

He added, “I mean, he was bleaching their white robes, and he was shining their shields with his remarks today. And he may say he condemned them, but that’s not the way anybody in America read that.”
