Longtime Trump Critic Michael Rapaport Apologizes, Admits Media Lied About ‘Very Fine People’ Hoax


Comedian and vehement anti-Trump troll Michael Rapaport admitted that mainstream media outlets lied when claiming that then-President Donald Trump called Nazi extremists “very fine people” in the aftermath of the Charlottesville protests.

Rapaport — whose film and television credits include Friends, Chappelle’s Show and My Name Is Earl — has become known in recent years for profanity-laced social media rants on various topics. He was very active with such videos during the Trump presidency, oftentimes referring to the former president as “d**kstain Donald” and a “dumb motherfu**er.”

During a recent appearance on the Patrick Bet-David podcast, however, Rapaport admitted that he is continuing to have a change of heart on the former president in the wake of the October 7 attacks in Israel. “Because I will acknowledge that one thing about the Charlottesville that I ranted about. And I was wrong about the both sides thing,” Rapaport said.

No, because he said the both sides, you know, there’s good people on both sides. And when you see the full quote, that wasn’t what he said,” he continued. “And you know, I ranted on him hard for that.

Hard. There’s some video about it, whatever. I mean, I ranted hard because I was like, what are you talking about, man?”

Leftists and other Trump critics have repeatedly advanced the “very fine people” hoax, which was crafted during an impromptu press conference Trump delivered in the aftermath of the Charlottesville protests. During his remarks, then-President Trump repeatedly condemned extremists

, stating that they need to be “condemned totally.”

He also noted that some people were simply there to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee and did not engage in any violence, nor did they have affiliation with any extremist groups. He also noted that far-left activists were present and engaged in violence themselves, which was well documented but largely ignored by mainstream media outlets.

Still, the lie has persisted, with President Biden claiming that Trump’s comments inspired him to run for office.

Rapaport, who delivered a lengthy rant directed at Trump’s supposed comment following the press conference, has repeatedly stated that he is becoming disillusioned with the Democratic Party in recent weeks. “If it comes down to Pig D*** Donald Trump and Smokin’ Joe Biden… I’m sorry. I am sorry. Voting for Pig D*** Donald Trump is on the table,” Rapaport said in a video statement back in November.

“I’m sorry! I’m f****** sorry. I’ll still call him Slob D*** Donald Trump, Pig D*** Donald Trump and all that. But we need to get this whole f****** situation under control.”
