Trump says he never meant to encourage white supremacists, denies Bannon is ‘alt-right’

During his discussion with reporters and management from the New York Times on Tuesday, Donald Trump denied that he’s been trying to fire up the (checking White Supremacy Euphemism Generator for journalists) Pasty Goosestep Enthusiasts.

Dean Baquet asks if Trump feels like he did things to energize the alt-right movement. “I don’t think so, Dean,†Trump replies.

And if he has been inciting the (checking) Anglo-Saxon Rights Traditionalists, he did it by accident.

Trump on alt-right supporters: “It’s not a group I want to energize. And if they are energized I want to look into it and find out why.”

Which makes it hard to understand why then he would appoint people like (not checking) Neo-Nazi Steve Bannon and (not checking) Islamophobic jerkwad Michael Flynn to important positions in his administration. Of course, it may be a complete coincidence that Trump’s interests in white nationalism and authoritarian control just happened to overlap with a group of people who have been tossing off ‘Heil Trumps’ down the street from the White House … even though they filled the seats at his rallies. And nice as it is to see Trump putting any distance at all between himself and the (checking) Waxen Rights Propagandists, these are pretty mild statements compared to things that really disturb Trump.

If he were sincerely against the Nazis celebrating him, Trump should be able to oppose them as strongly as he has, say, Rosie O’Donnell.
