Zeldin’s bizarre bifurcation of responses to Charlottesville continues. Yesterday he went back to his original position defending Trump and blaming both sides. That weak response is also the one on his website press release page, his official Facebook page and his official Twitter feed. He condemns the KKK and Nazism by name, before going on to blame the violence on both sides: but only on his personal Facebook page and in a letter sent to select donors and the Shelter Island Reporter (now also on the “in the news” section of his website).
Trying to show donors he’ll condemn anti-Semitism, while keeping his core Trump-supporting rightwing supporters happy by calling out both sides?
