The White House has finally put out a “statement” of sorts in response to a vile video depicting a fake “Donald Trump” violently slaughtering the media and other top Trump targets, several top Democrats including Rep. Maxine Waters, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Republicans including  the late Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Mitt Romney, and Black Lives Matter.


The clip was played at an event for Trump supporters held at Trump’s Miami golf resort. Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reportedly were present at the event.

At 8:26 AM ET Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham posted a short tweet, almost as an offhand memo.

Re: the video played over the weekend: The @POTUS @realDonaldTrump has not yet seen the video, he will see it shortly, but based upon everything he has heard, he strongly condemns this video.”

Trump, who repeatedly has called the press “enemy of the people,” had been tweeting up a storm overnight when the news broke, and again this morning.

Many were quick to respond to Grisham’s milquetoast remarks while some questioned the White House claim he had not seen it, asking if not, why not.
