It's not even noon, and Donald Trump has already provided a wealth of new material to late night comedy writers across the country. CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Trump three times this morning if he would disavow KKK Grand Dragon David Duke and his fellow white supremacists who have been supporting Trump. Jeez, who would have thought the guy who makes fun of handicapped people and takes inspiration from Hitler speeches would also be comfortable being associated with notorious racists and bigots!

“I don’t know anything about David Duke. I don’t know anything about what you are even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists," Trump insisted. Trapper pressed him a second time: “Would you just say, unequivocally, you condemn them and you don’t want their support?"

"Well, I have to look at the group," Trump replied. "I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them, and certainly I would disavow if I thought that there was something wrong."

Pressed a third time by Trapper, Trump responded, "Honestly, I don’t know David Duke. I don’t believe I’ve ever met him. I’m pretty sure I didn’t meet him, and I just don’t know anything about him."

How could anyone say no not disavow the KKK to this face?

So about that whole "I don't know David Duke...I just don't know anything about him" thing...yeaaaaah...that's a lie. Trump is quoted as calling Duke a Klansman in 2000.

Of course, none of us should be surprised by this—Trump has been proudly flaunting his white supremacist base on his Twitter timeline for months now (yes, he's even retweeted Duke himself, as well as good old @WhiteGenocideTM). The New Yorker also covered how the white supremacy movement embraced Trump (they had formerly described Trump as a "Jew-lover") last summer on the campaign trail, with one particularly articulate racist hitting the nail on the head:

“I don’t think Trump is a white nationalist,” but he did believe that Trump reflected “an unconscious vision that white people have—that their grandchildren might be a hated minority in their own country. I think that scares us. They probably aren’t able to articulate it. I think it’s there. I think that, to a great degree, explains the Trump phenomenon. I think he is the one person who can tap into it.”

And keeping with the theme of today, Trump also retweeted a post likening himself to Mussolini this morning:

Chuck Todd asked him about that, and at least Trump gave an honest answer: "I want to be associated with interesting quotes."

Meanwhile, Chris Christie is starting to feel some fallout for his endorsement of Trump, with National Finance Co-Chair for Christie's now-suspended campaign Meg Whitman slowly backing out of the room.

It's definitely time to go home.

Update: That Mussolini Twitter bot that posts quotes from the writings and speeches of the Italian fascist dictator and attributes them to Trump? The one that Trump retweeted this morning? That was Gawker.
