Donald Trump garners support from former KKK Grand Wizard, so that's nice
Though it scares the shit out of us and nobody else seems to want to admit to it yet, Donald Trump is almost certainly going to be the Republican nominee for president.
While Trump hasn’t received many endorsements from the political establishment, he just received support from the former Grand Wizard of the KKK and all around terrible person, David Duke.
Trump has been absolutely crushing it in the polls lately and often makes his competition seem so unqualified for public office that they will probably have to apply for jobs at Trader Joe's following this election cycle. In last night’s debate, Trump proved once again that he has the most momentum going into Super Tuesday — and all the other Republican candidates are just pissing in the wind.
Yesterday on his radio broadcast, Duke stated that, “Voting against Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage.”
Later, going on to call his audience of racist inbreds to action, he said to, “Get off your duff. Get off your rear end that’s getting fatter and fatter for many of you everyday on your chairs.”
Though we do appreciate Duke’s use of the hilarious and the criminally underutilized term "duff," we can’t help but think his endorsement was a tad redundant. As if supporters of the KKK needed any further motivation to vote for the candidate who wants to ban Muslims from entering the country and plans to build an enormous wall on the Mexican border.
Duke later encouraged listeners to go into a Trump campaign office to volunteer claiming, “You’re going to meet people who are going to have the same kind of mindset that you have.” Which may or may not be true.
While we haven’t stepped foot inside a Trump campaign office, we imagine it’s a lot like a KKK rally in 1960s era Mississippi: Musty, hot, full of racists, you know, basically what hell is probably like.
Trump’s camp has yet to make any statements on Duke’s glowing endorsement.
