  • CLINTON: Can't allow groups like the KKK "to be given any credence at all."

Hillary Clinton made the following comments to the press in Minnesota today, the Hill reports

I was very disappointed that he did not disavow what appears to be support from David Duke and from the Ku Klux Klan. That is exactly the kind of statement that should be repudiated upon hearing it. We can't let organizations and individuals who hold deplorable views about what it means to be an American to be given any credence at all.

Expect to hear lots and lots and lots of this from Clinton and other Democrats in the coming weeks. 

Meanwhile, Duke responded to Trump's belated disavowals of his support: “I’ll laugh it off. It’s fine. Look, Donald Trump, do whatever you need to do to get elected...because we need a change."
