So Donald Trump just can’t seem to shake the support of David Duke, former Grand Wizard for the KKK, noted Holocaust denier, and former Louisiana state representative. Trump was put on the spot a few weeks back about disavowing the support of the KKK and Duke, giving conflicting statements regarding the issue before eventually disavowing during a speech.
None of that matters because Duke is still out there fighting the good fight for Trump and he’s adding some fuel to the fire. Not only is Duke blaming the media for inciting the violence that has been giving Trump a bad image here recently, but he also says it’s giving people a look at an old friend: Adolf Hitler.
“But what’s going on, and the truth is, by the way, they might be rehabilitating that fellow with the mustache back there in Germany,” Duke said. “Because I saw a commercial against Donald Trump, a really vicious commercial, comparing what Donald Trump said about preserving America and making America great again to Hitler in Germany, preserving Germany and making Germany great again and free again and not beholden to these Communists on one side politically, who were trying to destroy their land and their freedom, and the Jewish capitalists on the other, who were ripping off the nation through the banking system.”
The surprising part here is that David Duke apparently has a radio show, one that Right Wing Watch apparently listens to regularly. No clue if Trump will be hit with these comments when he makes his weekly appearances on the Sunday talk shows, but it is pretty obvious that he’s stuck with this support base. Take a listen to Duke himself below.
