Hillary Clinton cannot win Donald Trump by talking about policies so she has resorted to a smear campaign. She told voters in North Carolina that Trump was endorsed by the Klu Klux Klan newspaper, even though the Trump campaign has denounced it.
“A few days ago Donald Trump was endorsed by the official newspaper of the Klu Klux Klan,” Clinton said during a rally in Winterville, North Carolina on Thursday.
But Trump’s campaign denounced the endorsement in a statement released Thursday:
Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form. This publication is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign.
Clinton went on to accuse Trump’s campaign of “offering dog whistles to his most hateful supporters.”
“It’s not an endorsement because, like anybody, there’s things you disagree with,” he said.
Flashback, Hillary Clinton in 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fondly eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, a former member and recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan.
According to Saving the Republic, in the 1940’s Byrd set up a West Virginia chapter of the KKK and was eventually elected to the highest position of Exalted Cyclops!
Clinton called Byrd “my friend and mentor” in a video message to commemorate his passing.
Glenn Beck commemorated Sen Byrd by reminding us who he really was, a racist who Hillary Clinton referred to as her “friend and mentor”.
