(CNN)The racists had been on parade for parts of two days, but it was
only around 20 minutes before reports -- and graphic video -- of the
attack that killed a protester in Charlottesville, Virginia, went public
on Saturday that President Donald Trump logged on.
"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for," he tweeted.
"There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come
together as one!"



Trump's subsequent live comments, delivered hours later, were panned by
both Democrats and Republicans. On-camera and online, he was unusually
vague. Owner of Twitter's most feared account, to say nothing of the
Presidential bully pulpit, Trump turned suddenly circumspect.



An innocent woman had been killed peacefully demonstrating and the
President, perpetually animated by his anger, assigned the blame, meekly,
to "many sides." No mention of neo-Nazis or white supremacists, no
condemnation of their hateful ideology. Graded by his own standard,
Trump's remarks came off like an artful dodge. One he wouldn't even
attempt to address for another two days.



Suddenly silent



The most positive review of his initial response came from the Daily
Stormer, a neo-Nazi and white supremacist website, which wrote, "Trump
comments were good," noting that he "refused to answer a question about
White Nationalists supporting him" and that, "when asked to condemn,
(Trump) just walked out of the room."



By the time Trump returned, on Monday afternoon, to offer a more pointed
response, the moment had passed. No matter what he said, his initial
refusal to name the racist, anti-Semitic, anti-gay (the list goes on)
demonstrators in Charlottesville would always say more.



"Trump's belated criticism of his staunchest supporters -- racist, Nazi,
KKK terrorists -- rings hollow," said Murshed Zaheed, the liberal group
CREDO's political director, in an email after Monday's brief speech. "When
it is politically convenient, Trump frequently and aggressively bullies
individuals and organizations by name, but in this case, he disgracefully
protected white supremacist Nazis for days before speaking out."
Happy to attack



When terrorists struck London on a Saturday night in early June, the
President reacted on Twitter before officials overseas had a full account.

Beyond petty political squabbles, Trump has never been overly cautious or
shy about denouncing or naming those who carry out terror attacks, often
using passionate, angry language to make his point.

The more recent controversy has actually been building for more than a
week. On Saturday, August 5, an assailant pitched a bomb into the Dar
Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota. Gov. Mark Dayton
labeled the attack "a criminal act of terrorism." Trump, though, had
nothing to say.

.

So the temperature was already up when a white supremacist mob descended
on Charlottesville late Friday, parading around the city with their
store-bought torches. As the rally turned violent that night, and clashes
with anti-racist protesters carried over into Saturday morning, Trump was
nowhere to be found.

.

Language matters  or does it?

.

In the second presidential debate debate last fall, Trump explained why he
felt so strongly that President Barack Obama and his Democratic opponent,
Hillary Clinton, needed to speak the words "radical Islamic terrorism."
First citing attacks in Paris, Orlando, New York and San Bernardino,
California, Trump then pivoted to Clinton.

.

"To solve a problem, you have to be able to state what the problem is or
at least say the name," he said. "She won't say the name and President
Obama won't say the name. But the name is there. It's radical Islamic
terror. And before you solve it, you have to say the name."
It wasn't until early Monday afternoon, some 72 hours after the deadly
attack in Charlottesville, Virginia, that Trump finally took his own
advice.

.

"Racism is evil," he said, "and those who cause violence in its name are
criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and
other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."

.

But even then, his carefully reworked statement stood in contrast to a
morning tweet, when he attacked Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, who is black,
after Frazier quit the White House manufacturing council in protest of
Trump's handling of the Charlottesville killing. The tweet had been
composed with such ease. His remarks, less so.

.

What's in a name?

.

Pressed by CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on "State of the Union," Thomas
Bossert, the White House homeland security adviser, defended Trump's
decision to not more directly call out -- or name -- the white
supremacists in Charlottesville.

.

Why? Trump, he said, chose not to "dignify the names of these groups of
people," opting instead to keep the focus of his initial statement on "the
fundamental issue."

.

WH adviser: Trump didn't dignify groups 01:25
But only a couple weeks earlier, Trump at a speech in New York very openly
named, shamed and threatened members of a specific gang  one with roots in
both Central America and the US.
