(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A Keeping Them Honest look at President Trump's gaslighting view today of events an t Charlottesville two years ago when he said there were fine people on both sides in his response to the campaign video from former Vice President Joe Biden introduced; scenes shown of the "Jews will not replace us" rally. [TRUMP - defends his statement about Charlottesville where they were protesting the taking down of the moment to Gen. Robert E. Lee.] [Aug. 15, 2017, TRUMP - says there is blame on both sides & there were very fine people on both sides, that there were quiet protesters at the statue.] The reality that this was a Unite the Right rally, not a peaceful protest, outlined.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with then-mayor of Charlottesville Mike Signer about Trump. [SIGNER - criticizes Trump's re-viewing of what happened in Charlottesville: it was not about "flaggers' history, but there were militia groups {white nationalists} there to try to terrorize people, how there are fascist-type rallies around the world.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Cornel West about Charlottesville. [WEST - offers views on how Trump is lying again: he is a vanilla xenophobe while people out there are promoting hatred, but Biden has to come to term with his record on civil rights so we have to have a critical sensibility about Trump & Biden, how we don't find "constancy" among our politicians, so we need to focus on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.]
