Congresswoman Gwen Moore.

Just heard this lady on CNN accuse 45's dad of being a member of the KKK. The news anchor made a feeble attempt to call her out and then just let it pass. Geez people. There is enough BS with the 45 administration that people do not need to make stuff up. The new anchor should be ashamed for letting that BS go essentially unchallenged.

It's actually verified fact that Fred Trump was arrested at a KKK rally in Queens in 1927. Whether or not he was an actual Klan member, an interested party, fighting against the Klansmen, or a bystander is a separate question.

Daddy trump was arrested at a KKK brawl in the 20's. Nobody knows what he was doing there. The documentation is incomplete, but there's enough to make it more than a rumor. Make of it what you will.

That is a lot more proof than Donald Trump needs to call a politician's father a criminal. Just ask Ted Cruz.

The senior Trump also had a history of not being interested in having blacks rent his properties.

Well, so what? What trump senior does does not make his son responsible.

But....too bad the son has displayed similar feelings.

I recall reading that some of this went on while DJT was working for his father.

Yeah? And Sen Byrd was not nice a grand poonah in the KKK. Yeah, Byrd is dead. ......... la state of being shared with Trump senior.

Look, Trump’s assholiness is sufficient that literally no gain is possible from digging up and beating dear ol dad.

Does this world shaking revelation have any impact on your opinion of The Donald?

Trump and his supporters vilify their opponents' families -- no reason why the same can't be done to them. R.I.H. Fred Trump, hope you're enjoying that big Klanbake down under.

Didn’t say it isn’t done. Said it has no impact on a candidate whose reputation has been given a pass for forty years.

I imagine there are folks out there who are proud to have been stiffed by The Donald....perhaps even voted for him.

I’m sure my father was never anywhere near a klan rally, and was never arrested. But can I be president? Some people are just solid Teflon.

Interesting quote from Wikipedia:


Historian Eric Foner observed: "In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired restoration of white supremacy. Its purposes were political, but political in the broadest sense, for it sought to affect power relations, both public and private, throughout Southern society. It aimed to reverse the interlocking changes sweeping over the South during Reconstruction: to destroy the Republican party's infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.[60]



Since Fred Trump was a dyed-in-the-wool Republican, I see some contradictions here.
