Hey Establishment, Trump Already Rejected David Duke Months Ago

Before getting their arses kicked on Tuesday, the establishment (accompanied by the lamestream media) is making a last-minute attempt to portray Trump supporters as KKK members and associate such hate to the GOP front-runner.

Via CNN:

Donald Trump wouldn’t disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke’s support for his presidential bid in an interview Sunday, saying that he knows nothing about the white supremacist leader.

It is clear that by saying he knows nothing about Duke, he’s questioning how the actions of Duke or the KKK are relevant to his campaign and why it’s his responsibility to denounce and/or condemn them:

I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists,” he said. “So I don’t know. I don’t know — did he endorse me, or what’s going on?

If there was any doubt (unless you’re a desperate supporter of Marco Rubio’s and looking for a last minute bombshell) as to what Donald Trump thinks of David Duke or the KKK, let’s examine a piece from Politico back in August of 2015 (emphasis mine):

Donald Trump says he isn’t interested in the endorsement of David Duke, the anti-Semitic former Ku Klux Klan leader who praised the GOP presidential hopeful earlier this week on his radio show.

“I don’t need his endorsement; I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement,” Trump said during an interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

To the various Republicans on Twitter trying to make hay out of this, shame on you for applying a true liberal tactic.
