Louis: ‘Star’ Tweet ‘Confirms’ Trump Has No Problem ‘Screwing Around’ with Far-Right

‘I don’t know where they think they’re going to take this country ... is going to work’

LOUIS: "To me it confirms what a lot of people feared, which is that perhaps the campaign and the candidate himself don’t have a problem with screwing around with some of these far-right elements. When you read in “The Washington Post” that some of these far-right groups have said, you know, he’s one of us, he’s sending us the right signal, we like this, we’re going to try and mobilize for this candidate, anybody in mainstream politics, the world of real politics who isn’t horrified by that, who isn’t disgusted by that, who doesn’t at least privately demand that the campaign clarify and speak up about this, I think is being so irresponsible as to take him into the realm where Hillary Clinton wants him to be, which is not really qualified for this job. I think these are disqualifying kinds of actions to not speak up and say it was a mistake, itintern, I don’t know what this is about. Say something. But to say nothing, and even as — again, it’s in the mainstream press now. Even as the far-right groups are saying, go, Donald Trump, that’s the signal we like to see, I don’t know where they think they’re going to take this country or take this convention or take politics with this, but I don’t think it’s going to work."
