The Chicken's Have Come Home to Roost

Several days ago Donald Trump, who is presently seeking the republican nomination for President of the United States of America, was endorsed by David Duke.   David Duke is the head of the Klu Klux Klan, a white supremacy group with a long history of racist acts of violence in this country.  When asked about the endorsement by anchor Jake Tapper on the morning program State of the Union Donald Trump would not disavow the endorsement.  He stated “I have looked at that group.  I don’t know what group you are talking about.”  It took him approximately four days to disavow the endorsement.   Now either you’re an idiot or you are a panderer to groups like the KKK.   There is no way you could not know who of David Duke or the KKK and what they stood for.  This shows that there is no limit to what he will do to get support.

Today the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, had a news conference noting that anyone that wants to be a nominee of the Republican Party they must reject any group that is built on bigotry.  Now you want to take the high road.  As I have always been told growing up “eventually the chickens will come home to roost”.   The Republican Party has created a platform for Donald Trump to spew hatred and bigotry the moment a black man entered the White House as President of the United States 7 years ago.   The party has continued to attack and disrespect President Obama in ways that are unimaginable.  This is the same party that had a backroom meeting the night of the 2008 election noting they were going to stop anything that the newly elected President would propose.

So now you see Trump building a huge base off of a culture you allowed to be created in response to your 7 years of disrespect.  You let your fellow republicans run wild and never speaking out on those things that were blatantly wrong.  Now you want to hold a news conference noting your shock and disappointment.  Sorry, you don’t get to play that card.   This is a monster you created and now you want to appear as if your hand are clean and sanitary.  No ma’am!!!
