White supremacists clearly love Donald Trump. After all, why wouldn't they? The guy hates immigrants, women, and general social progress in equal measure. White supremacists love Trump so much they have even started coming out of retirement to start whites-only towns in North Dakota with stupid fucking names like Trump Creativity, two words that should most certainly never reside together in a sentence.

Surely sensing an unfortunate trend, infamous Holocaust denier and former KlansmanDavid Duke has now thrown his racist weight behind Trump's presidential campaign. During a recent episode of his radio program (who is listening to this guy?), Duke vomited effusive praise upon the throne of Trump, even calling him "the best":

He has really said some incredibly great things recently. I really like the fact that he's speaking out on this greatest immediate threat to the American people. Although we can’t trust him to do what he says, the other Republican candidates won’t even say what he says. So, he’s certainly the best of the lot. And he’s certainly somebody that we should get behind in terms [of], you know, raising the image of this thing."

As for Duke, "this thing" has thus far included being a Ku Klux Klan "Grand Wizard," a proud Holocaust denier, and an all-around neo-Nazi scumbag. The Southern Poverty Law Centerconsiders Duke "the most recognizable figure of the American radical right," a distinction currently challenged by Trump himself.
