After the huge social networks blowback, the Times has changed the headline to “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT WEAPONS”:

… the only precise heading would be: “Assailing White Supremacist Hate, However Not His Own.” https://t.co/MRs5P8PcGF

@TomJolly: you look like a great guy. That headline is bad. Not precise. Not contextual. It’s simply wrong and the grey Girl should repent of printing this crap. The President does not, in reality, assail hate. He fans the flames and influences white supremacists. Do. Much better. https://t.co/USsT9gUJP4
