The video, which garnered more than 600,000 views in its first 24 hours online, looks back at Trump’s “cozy relationship with supremacists,” according to its YouTube description.
Roy Wood Jr., a correspondent for the Comedy Central program, notes in the bit that Trump is “famous for being quick with an insult” with his attacks on reporters, senators and even his own supporters to their faces.
But “he’s been strangely reluctant to call out” white supremacists, says Wood Jr., recalling Trump’s failure to immediately denounce the endorsement of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke; his claim about “very fine people on both sides” at the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017; and his call for the neo-fascist Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during a 2020 presidential debate.
“Of all Donald Trump’s scandals, supporting white supremacists should have been the easiest to avoid,” says Wood Jr.
