Posted on 02/29/2016 12:50:56 PM PST by dlt
On Sunday Donald Trump went on CNN and was asked once again about David Dukes endorsement. Trump told Jake Tapper he didnt know anything about David Duke or white supremacy.
This sent shock waves across the liberal media and GOP establishment circles.
A Duke endorsement that I understand that was never made!
I’m going to believe his campaign? That it was an earpiece issue? When did his campaign become the final authority and have the ability to change what he said after the fact? I refuse to shut my mind down and follow anyone blindly, even Trump.
I heard everything Rush said. He’s a weasel.
"I'm telling you folks, there's a reason Trump declined to disavow David Duke and the KKK yesterday on CNN".
Of course, like anyone who is spreading sh!t, he didn't say, or conjecture on what the reason was.
Despicable, and nothing like any words I've heard spoken by Rush before.
Trump has always denounced Duke. What Trump was saying on Sunday was that be won’t denounce a bunch of groups without knowing what he’s talking about.
Those of you who are pointing out Trump always denounced Duke from long ago are making his point.
I listened today. In the last hour, Rush forward some half-baked conspiracy theory that goes like this:
Trump had already disavowed David Duke more than once in the days before the Jake Tapper appearance on CNN. Rush suggested that Donald may have intentionally dodged 3 separate questions about David Duke by Jake Tapper because it was a SUNDAY SHOW. Basically, that it was intentional in some way? And that Donald Trump did this because Sunday shows are the most widely heard and closed with a “just saying” before the break.
If you haven’t figured it out, Rush is and have been ALL IN for Ted Cruz since the day before the Iowa “Cauk-eye” as he calls it.
What kills me about this is that I’m not even a Rush fan. It was the only thing I could get in on talk radio while working this afternoon.
Are there any Klansmen left besides FBI informants or figments of the SPLC’s imagination? The KKK is about as relevant as the WCTU.
Dead on. I heard it. Weasel move on Ruth’s part.
Rush has used it when “recounting” past Trump exchanges. This time time he just showed too much slip.
He was in full CYA mode for most of the show over that Times piece. Hannity too. Both protesting waaaayyyy too much.
All they have left is to play the race card. Otherwise Trump is going to run away with this entire election. So they are going to be laying KKK type traps all over the place.
One his people needs to be working on a stock answer. Something like:
I am 100% against all race based groups, whether it’s the Aryan Nation or La Raza or the KKK or BLM. So if a group has a huge racial element or agenda, no matter what else they may stand for, I’m against that group and will not accept their endorsement.
Trump said he didnt know who duke was...lie. And a stupid lie for trump to make up.
When Trump bought the Mar-A-Lago country club in Palm Beach, FL, it was closed membership to blacks and Jews. He not only opened his club membership rolls but demanded that like clubs locally get rid of such odious racial and ethnic restrictions. Don’t hear about this from Rush, do we and just what clubs does he belong to down there, which is where he lives and broadcasts from, NOT from New York.
Did any ever think that Trump likes taunting. He has the numbers,32000 in Alabama yesterday he can stick the ball in anyone’s face. And Rush is feeling left out. Rush is irrelevant and he knows it. There is a new sheriff in town for now.
Rush said, "I don't understand why Trump didn't denounce David Duke and the KKK, because he's done it before."
Rush then proceeded to discuss Trump's history with the Reform Party. Trump's statements at the time he renounced the party clearly indicated he knew EXACTLY who David Duke was.
Now Trump is on a Sunday show, saying he doesn't know anything about David Duke [which was clearly untrue] or the White Supremacists. Rush raised several possible theories, one of which was he didn't want to give any opposition people a sound bite from a Sunday News Show, which still presents a different context to many people from casual remarks made on the campaign trail or at a rally.
He put forward another theory that maybe Trump didn't want to alienate any voters. And he ends that segment by saying, this theory is just as valid as any other, because why would Trump refuse to denounce a person and a group that he's denounced in the past? It makes no sense.
Your outrage is, like most Trumpanzee outrage, phony. The main point of the segment was that he had no idea why Trump would refuse to denounce an association he's always denounced in the past.
Maybe what Trump needs to do, rather than sending out attack 'bots to trash real conservatives, is to explain why he didn't simply reiterate a position that he's made before.
He did say why. Because the Sunday morning shows have more importance than everyday media and Trump didn’t want to commit in that format. Seems reasonable to me. Of course someone came out saying it was an earpiece issue (Trump himself?) Fine, if that’s what you want to believe. I think Rush was trying to make what he did seem reasonable. No good deed goes unpunished, I suppose.
The hell with the KKK traps-—he can just hit them with often elected Senator Byrd.
Finally, people can “see” that Limbaugh is part of the Hegelian Dialectic—put in place decades ago (and ALWAYS controlled) so that the Leviathan could get complete control over all three branches of government. He was the “release” valve to thwart true, effective revolution.
They accomplished their “goal” now with obammy. They own the SCOTUS which passed two of the most unconditional, insane “Just” Laws of all time after abortion (killing human babies).
Complete takeover of people and elimination of the Christian Worldview—the only one which encompasses Free Will (choice) and Individualism (the only Freedom in history of man).... and the culture/schools have total control of the Minds (worldview) of our children to force Satanism which is the only religion allowed in the public schools and public squares for DECADES now (and crickets from Rush).
Now they can kill the true masculine moral patriots (LeVoy) (crickets from Rush) (the needed Revolution) and do it with State protection and giving misinformation to the Masses (thanks to Rush) using our OWN taxpayer money, as they steal American land and sell it to China or Russia. (Crickets from Rush again on Reid and tyranny).
The evil satanists control EVERYTHING now....and they back it with Rule of Obammy and Brownshirts/mercenaries and trained Bots who are incapable of moral actions since sodomy is a Virtue now and using others as a Means to an End is for the “Common Good”. They threw out the Constitution in the 50s and 60s and even before and “crickets” from Rush-— as the Left killed Rule of Law for Stalin’s constitution and put actual Satanists and Marxists like Kagan on the court (and crickets from Rush).
“Trump did this because Sunday shows are the most widely heard”
Kinda like Rush not mentioning the Sessions endorsement on his “widely heard” show ?
Duke hasn’t been in the KKK for 30 years, and he hasn’t even lived in the US for about 10 or 15 years.
