WATCH: Tapper Claps Back At Trump’s Charlottesville Comments

As so often happens now, CNN’s Jake Tapper acted as a voice of reason and moral sense on Tuesday, lacing into President Trump for comments that blamed “both sides” for the weekend violence in Charlottesville.

“To anyone watching out there today, anyone who is confused, ‘I thought that the Klan and neo-Nazis and white supremacists, I thought there was no debate about that among civilized people,’ there is no debate about that,” he said, closing out the Tuesday edition of his CNN “The Lead” program.

Watch the clip here, and check out the profile the Forward’s Nathan Guttman did on the CNN journalist a few month back.
