( CNN) America — why are you astounded? The Donald Trump who on Saturday and again on Tuesday gleaned an equivalency between the “very fine people”( his messages) among those asserting with neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, and those that resisted this event as an affront to America’s foundations is the same Donald Trump millions of beings substantiated and the electoral college throw in the White House.

Trump failed to condemn white supremacists and blamed “many sides” for the brutality that erupted when groupings of lily-white nationalists and neo-Nazis brought together in Virginia this weekend to parade and protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. And even after a car plowed through a army, killing a woman, Trump still failed to approaching this moment with much needed presidential leader.

And after his White House team, including the vice president and the chief of staff, apparently invested two days persuading him to read a carefully worded testimony on Monday, by Tuesday he reiterated what is clearly his point of view. Anyone with a moral compass knows he is flat out incorrect and the criticism of such statements has been nearly universal. But was it disgraceful?

Cooper: President for all or exactly alt-right?

Trump: Does the ‘alt-left’ have any guilt?
