Michael Rapaport Admits Error on Charlottesville Narrative, Walks Back Previous Statements

“Boston Public” star Michael Rapaport conceded on Friday that he was wrong about the Charlottesville narrative involving former President Donald Trump. Rapaport admitted on the “Patrick Bet David Podcast” that he was misled by the media regarding Trump’s remarks after the Aug. 2017 protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump’s speech, where he mentioned “fine people on both sides,” led to false claims that he referred to neo-Nazis as “fine people.”

“I was wrong,” Rapaport acknowledged during the podcast, admitting that he was duped and misspoke about the Charlottesville incident. He deemed his previous comments on the matter as “irresponsible.”

Rapaport clarified that Trump’s full quote did not support the narrative he previously ranted about, and he expressed regret for his strong criticism. Additionally, Rapaport revealed his stance on voting, stating that he would not vote for Biden, Kamala Harris, or Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom if he were to run.

In a 2017 interview, Trump explicitly condemned neo-Nazis, referring to those not associated with them as “very fine people.” Rapaport, who had criticized Jared Kushner for his silence, now acknowledges his error in understanding the context of Trump’s comments.
