Trump Blames ‘Lousy Earpiece’ for Not Denouncing David Duke


Donald Trump blamed a “lousy earpiece” for why he claimed he didn’t know who David Duke was during a CNN interview on Sunday.

On NBC’s Today show this morning, Trump said he knows who Duke is, but claimed he never met him. Trump also said he only didn’t know the white-supremacist groups that host Jake Tapper asked him about. Nevertheless, Trump refused several opportunities to denounce the racists supporting him. On Sunday night, he tweeted that he disavowed their support.

Trump on his terrible earpiece:

“I’m sitting in a house in Florida with a very bad earpiece that they gave me, and you could hardly hear what he was saying. But what I heard was various groups. And I don’t mind disavowing anybody and I disavowed David Duke, and I disavowed him the day before at a major news conference. Now I go and I sit down again, I have a lousy earpiece that is provided by them, and frankly he talked about groups, he also talked about groups. And I have no problem with disavowing groups, but I’d at least like to know who they are.”



  1. Donald needed time to think it over so that he could weigh the pros and cons of a Klan leader’s endorsement.

    Over and over again, Trump has demonstrated an inability to accept responsibility for his own failures, mistakes, and shortcomings. This is yet another one of Donnie’s fatal flaws — he is totally incapable of ever admitting that he was wrong with respect to comments made in a tweet, a speech, or during an interview.

    In addition, he has a propensity to engage in petty vindictiveness to the point of obsession. He expends a disproportionate amount of time attacking anyone who dares to question or challenge his self-serving actions, inflammatory commentaries, reality-devoid analyses, and innuendo-laden conclusions.

  2. What a liar!

    And please don’t bring up Hillary’s similar excuse about Suha Arafat’s anti-Semitic rant. Hillary loves Judaism and Trump doesn’t, it’s as simple as that.
