Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke came to presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s defense on his Tuesday radio show and blamed “Jews” in the media for Trump’s racially-motivated attacks on a federal judge.
Duke blamed Fox News’ Chris Wallace, CNN’s Jake Tapper, and Wolf Blitzer, who he “exposed” as a “Jewish agent” for trying to drag down Trump. He also slammed CNN President Jeff Zucker as “another Jewish extremist.”
“More recently, Fox News, the shabbat goy shiksa Megyn Kelly, ‘cause they love to have some gentiles doing it. They don’t want Jews always out front,” he said in audio of the show posted online.
Duke went on to say the media’s attacks on Trump are an illustration of the “Jewish tribal nature” at work, saying they’re “like a pack of wild dogs when they go after someone they see as a threat to the Jewish agenda.”
After initially dodging multiple opportunities to distance himself from Duke, Trump denounced Duke’s support for his candidacy in February.
