Trump “Forgets” KKK Is Racist

The presidential candidate who says he is, “really, really smart,” says he knows nothing about David Duke and the KKK.

When given ample opportunity to condemn David Duke and the KKK by interviewer Jake Tapper, The Donald repeated that he knew nothing about the people in question,  “Honestly, I don’t know David Duke. I don’t believe I’ve ever met him. I’m pretty sure I didn’t meet him, and I just don’t know anything about him.”

Trump’s psychobabble makes Donald Rumsfeld’s “Unknown Unknowns,” seem down right erudite by comparison.

Both the forgetful Trump and the really, really smart one, however, are at odds with reality :

On one hand Trump can’t remember the most reviled racist group in America, the KKK, “I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups.”

On the other hand, the “smart” Trump when pressed by Sean Hannity for names of people he would appoint to his cabinet, comes up with a typical non-answer laced with superlatives and absolutes, “I always say: ‘I know the ones that are no good, but people think are good.’ I know people you’ve never heard of that are better than all of them.”

Most likely it’s just more of Trump adjusting the facts and his memory to suit whatever schoolyard brawl he’s fighting in today.
