Donald Trump’s campaign has garnered some really questionable supporters during its build-up over the last year, so it’s not too surprising that these supporters loved Trump’s acceptance speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Duke might be wearing a suit in his Twitter avatar, but he’s more associated with the white robes of the Ku Klux Klan, where he was formerly a Grand Wizard.
He’s been a long-time supporter of Donald Trump’s candidacy, including claiming that Trump is “rehabilitating” Hitler’s image. He caused some embarrassment for Trump when the candidate hesitated in condemning Duke and the KKK during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Who else could be as disliked as a former Klan leader?
It’s been a while since we heard from pharma-bro Martin Shkreli, but his fervor for Trump hasn’t diminished at all as he prepares for his securities fraud trial. More memorable than his trial was the time he attempted to raise prices on a critical cancer drug, leading to massive outcry.
So if you loved Trump’s speech on Thursday, say hello to your political bedfellows. Sleep tight.
