Eric Trump Says David Duke ‘Deserves a Bullet,’ but Eric Appeared on a White Nationalist Radio Show in October
So today, Donald Trump’s surrogate son Eric actually said, in public, that David Duke ‘deserves a bullet.’
(CNN)Eric Trump said on Thursday that former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke deserves “a bullet.”
“Ross, it’s disgusting and by the way, if I said exactly what you said, I’d get killed for it but I think I’ll say it anyway,” the Republican nominee’s son said after host Ross Kaminsky of 630 KHOW Denver radio suggested Duke deserves a bullet to the head. “The guy does deserve a bullet. I mean, these aren’t good people. These are horrible people. In fact, I commend my father. My father’s the first Republican who’s gone out and said, ‘Listen, what’s happened to the African-American community is horrible and I’m going to take care of it.’”
OK. We don’t endorse speech that advocates violence, but at least he’s renouncing former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke in no uncertain terms, right?
But if he’s really this vehement about denouncing white supremacists, maybe somebody should ask Eric Trump why, less than a month ago, he gave an interview to a Tennessee radio show that’s every bit as racist as David Duke: Donald Trump’s Son Eric Appears on Radio Show With Ties to White Nationalists.
