Making her first televised appearance since announcing her bid for a Congressional seat, Clueless star Stacey Dash said she agrees with President Donald Trump’s rhetoric claiming there were good and bad people on “both sides” of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last August.

“I think he’s absolutely right,” Dash told MSNBC’s Ari Melber Thursday evening. “There were two extreme sides.” 

After touting both sides “right to assemble,” the conservative actress went on to pay lip service to the need for the rally’s white supremacists, Klansmen and neo-Nazis and those who counter-protested in opposition of them to “listen to each other.”

Melber asked Dash to elaborate on her assertion that there was “hate on both sides,” to which she replied Trump “was not siding with the neo-Nazis.”

“When he said there are ‘good people on both sides,’ good people at the white supremacist rally, do you cosign that?” the host asked Dash.

“I’m not here to judge,” she responded. “The only one who can judge is God.”
