|KKK... White supremacists... Heavens, I've never heard of such things!|
“Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists.”
When confronted by Trumps laughable answer Tapper simplified the question and resatated...
"I’m just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here,”
"Certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong. 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."

By the way, we know Trump is lying because he had spoken out against David Duke back in 2000 when he decided explore of a run for president under the "Reform Party" banner. Upon learning of his newfound parties less that savory members Trump said according to the New York Times...
“The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani... This is not company I wish to keep.”
As reports of Trump's recent dishonesty has hit the airwaves (and seem to be getting some traction) he has issued a statement saying that he could not fully understand Tappers questions because he had been given "a very bad ear piece" prior to the interview.
Anyone care to hazard a guess if they think this will hurt Trump in the polls... Yeah, me neither.
