Sunday, Donald Trump, who has always dismissed David Duke and his ilk, was asked a question about Duke’s endorsement of him and he said he needed to check on that. “I have to look at the group. I don’t know what group you’re talking about,” he told CNN. He claims a bad earpiece made him mishear the question and the result sounded as though he had to check on Duke himself.
So in effect Trump’s being smeared for not repudiating a non-endorsement.
