Hours after ‘denouncing’ racism, Trump amplifies views of two other white supremacists
It took about six hours for Donald Trump to go from woodenly reading the words “We must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacism” off of a teleprompter to amplifying a white supremacist in a tweet. Actually, two white supremacists.
He tweeted out a Lou Dobbs (white supremacist No. 1) story about former Google engineer Kevin Cernekee (white supremacist No. 2), who is making the rounds of fringe media such as Fox News to claim that he has been discriminated against because he’s a conservative Trump supporter. Cernekee told Dobbs that Google executives “want to use all the power and all the resources that they have to control the flow of information to the public and make sure that Trump loses in 2020.” That really stuck with Trump; he went to bed thinking about it and then resumed tweeting about it through the morning.
