Mike Huckabee defends the Donald’s refusal to condemn David Duke with a golden oldie:
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Huckabee was immediately asked if he would disavow Duke and the KKK. The former presidential candidate did so firmly.
“David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan are absolutely abominable. I don’t know anybody that I know, anybody that I’ve ever known, supports them,” he said. “And look, I think there’s an incredible just overwhelming fascination I’ve been watching this morning. But look, let me ask you this: Do you think Hillary Clinton is going to have to answer for her relationship with Sen. Robert Byrd who was an actual member of the KKK? Look, I’m not trying to defend, maybe, the inartful way…”
Yes, to be Scrupulously Fair, it’s impossible to hold up well under such brutally tough questioning as “do you disavow the support of the KKK?” And will they even ask Hillary Clinton about George Wallace being a member of the Democrat Party? Trump/Da Nooge ’16!
In addition, for Joe Scarborough to start pretending to be a harsh critic of Trump’s racist demogagugery after propping him up for months is really appalling. (And Scarborough doesn’t have tenure with America’s Liberal Network (TM) while Melissa Harris-Perry gets pushed out because of ratings.)
