CNN reports that Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” claims that President Donald Trump was desperate to say something nice about the KKK after the Charlottesville protests that left one one woman dead.
CNN co-host Alysin Camerota read an excerpt from the book:
Privately, he kept trying to rationalize why someone would be a member of the KKK – that is, they might not actually believe what the KKK believes, and the KKK probably does not believe what it used to believe, and anyway who really knows what the KKK believes now?
Co-host Chris Cuomo sarcastically piped in: “Why else would you join the KKK? Do they have good benefits? Is there an insurance plan or something else that goes along with it? Why else would you join?”
