Willie Geist: Comparing David Duke to Robert Byrd Not a ‘Fair Comparison’

‘He is half a century removed from his relationship with the Klan so I’m not sure it’s a fair comparison’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
SCARBOROUGH: "Jeff Sessions came out strongly, Willie Geist, yesterday."
GEIST: "He did."
SCARBOROUGH: "Just said, hey, don’t know exactly how he answered it, but this is what he needs to say."
GEIST: "We heard a lot of that. He had endorsed Donald Trump. So that was a significant talking point from the trump campaign that we heard yesterday from governor Huckabee, oh, yeah. Robert Byrd endorsed president Obama. He is half a century removed from his relationship with the Klan so I’m not sure it’s a fair comparison."
