David Duke Show Celebrates Trump’s Breitbart Hire: We’ve ‘Taken Over the Republican Party!’

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rocked the political media world this week by hiring Breitbart.com honcho Stephen K. Bannon to be his campaign CEO, and while the move has mainstream pundits scratching their heads, its meaning appears to be crystal clear to David Duke and his followers. The former Klan leader and current U.S. Senate candidate closed out the week celebrating the move with Stormfront-friendly radio co-host Don Advo, who got a chuckle from Duke by saying that the Bannon hire means “We’ve taken over,” an assessment that Duke mostly agreed with:

Don Advo: So, something extonishing has happened. We appear to have taken over the Republican Party.

David Duke: Well, rank and file, but a lot of those boll weevils are still in those cotton balls, and, uh, the Republican Party may be a European-American populated party, but like a ball of cotton, you can have boll weevils in there that are going to rot it out from the inside.

The praise from David Duke comes as new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is trying to present a more “presidential” Donald Trump who is making a show of reaching out to African-American voters.
