When Donald Trump was running for office, former KKK Imperial Wizard, David Duke, endorsed him, which Trump quickly denounced. Despite that, “the KKK endorsed Trump” still became a talking point among many of those in the Left.

Of course, what’s really relevant is whether or not Trump endorsed the KKK — which he did not. Candidates are not responsible for who endorses them — such as when KKK members donated $20,000 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Hey, at least Trump never took money from them!

But for liberals still making the “David Duke loves Trump!” argument, how would they feel if Duke endorsed one of their candidates – such as the front-runner in the race for DNC chair? Well, you don’t have to imagine. Duke sent out the following tweet this morning:

It wasn’t specified exactly what Ellison “knows,” but knowing Duke, it likely has to do with their shared antisemitic stances (though I’m sure Ellison would try to classify as his position as “anti-Zionist” not “antisemitic”).

In fact, there was no shortage of antisemitic tweets coming out of Duke’s account in the past 24 hours.

A number of past statements from Ellison — from his call for a separate black state, to his claim that Jews gained the most from 9/11 — led Red State to refer to him as “the Democrats’ David Duke” last November.

How fitting.
