They don’t call him ‘Teflon Don’ for nothing. It seems like the GOP frontrunner can say just about anything and his die-hard supporters don’t really give a crap. Just like the recent news that Donald Trump half-assed repudiated David Duke and the KKK when a reporter cornered him about the former grand dragon’s support of him. He makes the most ridiculous denial ever…
Problem is, Trump knows damn well who David Duke is, because he criticized political candidates in the past who have endorsed GOP candidates, way back when Bush Senior was running, then again in 2000. Trump had spoken out about Duke, recognizing him as a Klansman, in 2000 when he decided to end his exploration of a run for president, according to the New York Times. “The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani,” Trump said at the time. “This is not company I wish to keep.” [SOURCE]
Now he’s got his flacks doing damage control, asserting that he didn’t “understand” the question because of a faulty earpiece. It’s a totally cynical response and low-key pandering to the Southern states prior to what could be the deciding factor on who will be the official Republican candidate. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have their work cut out for them.
Now even with me saying all this, I haven’t made a decision on who I will vote for, except for who I’m definitely not voting for on the Democratic side.
But…what’s the worst that could happen with Donald Trump as our president? Pretty much all he says he’s going to do–build a wall, do mass deportations of Mexicans and Middle Easterners, repeal Obamacare–are all virtually impossible (and probably illegal) to enforce.
