"Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements"

President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that he felt Nick Sandmann & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly in regards to the internationally-publicized encounter that took place in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial.

In his tweet, Trump posted: “Looking like Nick Sandman[n] & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American”

President copied @TuckerCarlson on the tweet, who is the host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" weeknights on Fox News.

Criticisms on both sides of the fence have been posted on social media at a fever pitch and last evening the hashtag #CovingtonBoys was trending on Twitter at the top spot.

Trump, - "Look, it's ok to be racist if the different looking man approaches you ".

JackBilly71TL Meanwhile, Nathan Phillips and Co. (Chase Iron Eyes) are attempting to ride this "native american victimhood" scheme for as much ($$$) and as long as possible.


The best thing you could do in this case is to make your academic faculty greater than ever. Students all over the UK says the same thing in the conversation with in annual meetup. This is the only way.
