David Duke Blows Up at Newsmax Host: Trump ‘Jumped 10 Points in the Polls’ Thanks to Me!

David Duke really lost it during an interview today with Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg. Malzberg couldn’t even get through the intro before Duke started shouting at and objecting to what he was saying.

He angrily ranted about how he’s referred to as an ex-KKK grand wizard when the late Democratic senator Robert Byrd was not afforded the same courtesy. Malzberg brought up his various issues with Jews and blacks before reminding Duke repeatedly that he actually was an ex-KKK grand wizard.

Duke ranted about the “controlled media” as Malzberg tried to move onto Donald Trump. Duke shouted “Let me finish, please!” to which Malzberg shot back, “I can’t play by your rules! I don’t want to waste time on this!”

Duke cried, “We don’t have to do the interview and I’ll just play this tape of what’s happening today to my people!”

Malzberg eventually got Duke talking about Trump, and the self-described “human rights activist” bragged that after he told his people to support The Donald, “he jumped ten points in the polls.”

Malzberg asked him if he’s even spoken to, or met with, Trump. Duke said he hasn’t and ranted about Robert Byrd again.

So the one nice side effect of Trump hedging on disavowing David Duke is that we have David Duke appearing on TV more. So… yeah.
