During the campaign season the Democratic Party seemed to have a team specifically dedicated to tracking every word of David Duke. The mere mention of Donald Trump by Duke sent Democrats out in droves. Like a set of whack-a-moles, they popped up on every news outlet demanding Trump disavow the KKK.
But where are they now? David Duke has seemingly endorsed DNC Chair candidate Keith Ellison. That’s right, in a tweet yesterday David Duke stated he “really liked” Keith Ellison. The official statement coming from the Democrats: CRICKETS!
Keith Ellison, Sally Boynton Brown or Jehmu Greene would all be excellent choices – I really like Keith though… I mean, at least he knows. https://t.co/jXQK1CJEie

If there was any doubt to Duke’s endorsement he followed it up today with another tweet, responding to a report that his tweet was an endorsement of Congressman Ellison.

Another day has passed and Ellison’s campaign has not yet disavowed the endorsement. A quick look at the campaign’s twitter reveals nothing of the sort. The Democratic Party is in dire shape- perhaps they can use all the support they can get…even if it is from David Duke.
