This week on the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the team discusses the weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia. President Trump, after not explicitly condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis or the Ku Klux Klan in his initial response to the violence, made a more forceful statement on Monday. But was it too little too late? Also, FiveThirtyEight’s Perry Bacon Jr. joins the show to talk about the rise of white identity politics. Plus, the team previews Alabama’s special U.S. Senate primary.
