Protests in Charlottesville have turned violent. Here's the most disturbing incident:
A driver appeared to intentionally ram into a group of counterprotestors at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, leaving at least 10 injured. Police say the injuries range in severity from life-threatening to minor. It is unclear if the driver of the car has been apprehended.
The right-wing media has now been forced to acknowledge what's going on in Charlottesville ... and the response at Breitbart is: Waaaah! You're being unfair to Trump!
1:10 p.m. ET – Some reactions from Twitter, predictably smearing President Trump and his advisers:
... 2:05 p.m. ET – Laura Ingraham points out that media is finding a convenient scapegoat to bash President Trump:

I am outraged at what happened last night. Counter protest march link below.”
Andy Richter ripped the participants as “human race traitors,” while Rosie O’Donnell said it was evidence of “THE TRUMP EFFECT.” She added, “#25thAmendmentNow #stopTRUMP.” ...
Gosh, I can't imagine why people would be linking this to Trump:
A link to Trump? Baffling!
During a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke said the event is in line with President Trump’s “promises.”
“This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said. “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”
Why are so liberals so mean to the poor, innocent president?
