Donald Trump is a Man of the Terrible People
Now, the thing is, Meet the Press labels this clip as "Trump Quickly Rebukes David Duke" Well sure. But he also said "depending on the Democrat."
Depending on the Democrat, the Klan guy might be okay. The reason why this matters?
Klan and other racism-adjacent people are thinking he is totally standing for them. It may not be the case, but he left this speculation wide open.
But here's another thing he's fucking up, message-wise: women should not actually be sexually harassed. See, even though Roger Ailes is a kind of monster of sexist bullshit, and yet Trump supports this asshole.
Who got tens of millions severance to reward him for not just running a partisan shit-show of a news station, but to also feel great about all the ass he caressed, the blouses he looked down, and the actual human beings he objectified and made the working life of, actual shit, creating a corporate culture that was also based in treating women like shit. But let's just luxuriate in how Trump agrees that women shouldn't complain about sexual harassment because they were given opportunities--like, men can get stuff because of their merits, but women need to go down that extra piece.
Is there any terrible shit Trump doesn't endorse? I dunno. I just don't. I think horribleness is like his batsignal, and he's always for it.
