McAuliffe Uses ‘Very Fine People’ Hoax in Ad Attacking Youngkin

McAuliffe Uses ‘Very Fine People’ Hoax in Ad Attacking Youngkin

October 23, 2021

Breitbart News reports that Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe released a campaign ad this week featuring a selectively-edited clip of former President Donald Trump that perpetuates the “very fine people” hoax used repeatedly by Democrats attempting to paint Trump as a neo-Nazi sympathizer.

The ad links McAuliffe’s gubernatorial race opponent, Republican Glenn Youngkin, to the former president, a strategy McAuliffe has employed exhaustively throughout the duration of his campaign after Virginia voted ten points in favor of President Joe Biden in 2020.

The ad begins with visuals of the January 6 riot, and then switches to torch-bearing protesters marching in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. The ad then cuts to a brief clip of Trump responding to the Charlottesville protests that “you also had very fine people on both sides.” The ad then displays marchers with a confederate flag, Youngkin speaking about Trump, and McAuliffe condemning the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who were present at the protests.

Democrats have on countless occasions stripped Trump’s “very fine people” comment of all context to suggest the former president was describing neo-Nazis and white supremacists as “fine people,” when, in reality, Trump unequivocally condemned such protesters, as transcripts of Trump’s comments prove.

That has never stopped Democrats from lying about it.
