Jake Tapper trolled Donald Trump for a sound byte for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the Donald refused to step into Tapper’s snare, Tapper to Trump, via Red State:

Will you, unequivocally, condemn David Duke and say that you don’t want his vote or that of any white supremacists during this election?

Tapper is trolling for general election sound byte. His question contains to separate element, which taken in isolation, have a different answer. First Tapper asks Trump to denounce David Duke. OK, what politician would not. However second, Tapper asks Trump if he wants Duke to vote for him. Every politician wants every vote. Did Tapper ever ask Barrack Hussein Obama to tell the domestic terrorist, and Obama supporter Bill Ayers not to vote for Obama? Of course not, Obama was running for president and wanted every vote, including those of domestic terrorists like Ayers or religious bigots like Reverend Wright.

Not that I think Trump is a smart man, but a smart politician once did given a smart answer to Trapper’s gotcha type of question, from Red State:

“Those of us in public life can only resent the use of our names by those who seek political recognition for the repugnant doctrines of hate they espouse.

“The politics of racial hatred and religious bigotry practiced by the Klan and others have no place in this country, and are destructive of the values for which America has always stood.”

Alas, the Donald is no Gipper.

Waiting for Tapper to ask Mrs. Clinton about her courting the support of Black Lives Matter in four, three, two ….
