Tuesday's HOT MIC

Trump is not going to Charlottesville anytime soon. One aide reportedly said, "Why the hell would we do that?" He will be criticized for that, as he would be criticized for doing anything.

The left would love a Chief Brody Slap moment in Charlottesville, but the mother of Heather Heyer, the young woman run over by the racist, talked to NBC News and said "hate does not fix the world." She also thanked Trump in a tweet for his words of "comfort."

“She was there with her friends, and she was trying to simply cross the street as the movement was breaking up that day, and she was plowed down by a young man who was intent on spreading hate and thought hate would fix the world,” Heyer’s mother, Susan Bro, told NBC News. “And hate does not fix the world.” …

“I wouldn’t say that she was an activist,” Albro added. “But I would say that she felt strongly about certain things and had no problem standing up and showing support.”

Ed Morrissey described the statement as a "moment of extraordinary grace" -- a word rarely used in these times. The young woman's father also sounded a note of class and forgiveness:

Even though he is still in shock over his daughter’s death, Mark Heyer said that people on all sides need to learn to forgive each other.

“I include myself in that in forgiving the guy who did this,” he said. “I just think about what the Lord said on the cross, ‘Forgive them. They don’t know what they’re doing.’  … I hope that her life and what has transpired changes people’s hearts,” he said.

It's obvious that the parents of Heather Heyer will be of no use to the left and their sentiments will be ignored
