Angst over Trump's response to violence in Charlottesville is still a puzzle

NY Times:

Gary Cohn, Trump’s Adviser, Said to Have Drafted Resignation Letter After Charlottesville

The president’s chief economic adviser was anguished over Mr. Trump’s comments about violence in Charlottesville, but ultimately decided to remain in his job.
I think Cohn has been a good member of the Trump team, but I don't see what his concern was over the President's response to events in Charlottesville.  Liberals attempted to mad dog Trump over his true statements that both sides were at fault.  I suspect Cohn's liberal New York friends may have been mad dogging him too in hopes of forcing him out.

If you look at a tick-tock of events in Charlottesville it is clear that the Antifa liberal fascists went there to force a confrontation and did so.  The unfortunate results of the violence they participated in resulted in a guy with alleged mental health problems acting irrationally and being charged with vehicular homicide.

Trump condemned the violence and specifically condemned the "alt-right" participants after the media had a hissy fit about his giving blame to the liberal fascists too.  The left's excusing of acts of violence by Antifa was a bigger mistake.
