Regrettable reference justified

Beverley Mably wrote and asked for clarification on the editorial statement, ďTo regrettably paraphrase Donald Trump, the attacks came from both sides...Ē and I thought I would offer my help.
It is regrettable for a US president to create a false equivalency between white supremacists who ultimately killed someone and groups that stand up against such hate and bigotry.
Such a fallacy is indeed cringeworthy, but perhaps paraphrasing it was appropriate in regards to describing the attack on the gay community on Western Wheelís Facebook page.
I hope that helps, Beverley.
