Trump's response to Boston suggests someone needs to fix his auto-correct

Trump's response to Boston suggests someone needs to fix his auto-correct

We're not huge advocates for our own species" dignity these days, but it would still be nice if humanity's tombstone didn't read "Donald Trump tweeted "Nuke Korea" when he meant "Nice convertible, ' and then we all just kind of died". We should work to bring people together, not apart.

The crowd chanted anti-Nazi slogans and waved signs condemning white nationalism as it made its way in downtown Boston on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.

Earlier in the day, Trump had tweeted the protesters looked like "anti-police agitators" before later saying he wanted to applaud the protesters for "speaking out against bigotry and hate". Police are looking tough and smart!

Last weekend's violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed in a auto rampage after bloody street battles, ratcheted up racial tensions already inflamed by white supremacist groups marching more openly in rallies across the United States. "Our country will soon come together as one!"

Mr Trump initially blamed "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" after far-right sympathiser James Alex Fields Jr allegedly rammed his auto into counter-protestors, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and leaving several others seriously injured in the Virginian city.

"What about the "alt-left" that came charging at, as you say, the "alt-right"?"

To pacify the event, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said 500 police officers have been dispatched to the scene to keep conflicting groups apart.

The group was founded by student John Medlar, 23, to voice opposition to violent protests launched against the University of California Berkeley's decision to invite controversial figures, including Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos, to speak on campus. They're now rallying in #Boston for their right to "free speech", a.k.a. free hate speech.
