Rubio Shreds Trump Over KKK Flap: ‘It Makes Him Unelectable’

rubioMarco Rubio wasted little time taking Donald Trump to the woodshed at a campaign rally this afternoon for his pretty big KKK slip-up.

Ex-KKK leader David Duke endorsed Trump, Trump was asked on CNN today to disavow it, and multiple times he refused to because, he said, he didn’t know enough about the group in question. (Again, the group being the KKK.)

Trump lamely tweeted out this afternoon that he does disavow Duke after all, but Rubio still pounced, finding it amazing that when asked multiple times, Trump “refused” to condemn the Ku Klux Klan.

Rubio declared, “We cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan! We cannot be a party that does that!”

He said it makes Trump unelectable and that it’s hard to grow the GOP with a nominee like that.
