Given the easiest moral choice EVER, Trump hesitates, telling you everything you need to know.

There are a lot of choices in life that are shades of grey. Moral dilemmas are built around that.

Then there are choices that are easy and clear.

For example, saying Nazis are bad.

Arguably, neo-Nazis are worse; unlike the average German in 1939, they’re fully aware of the height of the Holocaust and all its horrors… and think that’s okay.

Congress’ resolution – that Trump has yet (as of me writing this) to sign says:

“[Congress] rejects White nationalism, White supremacy, and neo-Nazism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.” It says we and the president should “speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy,” and use all of the executive branch’s resources to “address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States.”

It’s bipartisan. It’s unanimous in this horribly divided Congress.  IT CONDEMNS NAZIS.

And while Trump may eventually get around to signing this and condemning Nazis (and other white supremacists), it’s already too late.

Hesitating to say “Nazis are bad” is a message in itself.
