The collapse of Trump is being taken especially hard by radio hosts who don’t like Hillary. Here, Dan Meurer, who’s heard on KLZ 560-AM’s afternoon drive show, says he’d rather have David Duke as president.
Duke, a former leader of the KKK, a racist, and holocaust denier, is a Republican running for U.S. Senate in Louisiana.
Here’s what Meurer said on KLZ Aug.10:
MEURER (in discussion around presidential race, and Trump and Hillary’s (-10.9) unfavorability): […] I do NOT want that woman as president, and I don’t know how else to say it.
I would rather have Gary Johnson, but he can’t win. I would rather have David Duke, but he’s not running. I mean, I would rather have anybody but her.
CO-HOST: ANDY PETH: (scoffing) David Duke!
MEURER: I’m serious! I would! I mean Louis Farakan could be president over Hillary Clinton And she is a criminal! I mean, he is more than twice – almost three times –.
PETH: You don’t cast your vote as a statement. You cast your vote as a number. Votes are strategic decisions to affect outcomes. [Listen below.]
Asked if he were joking about favoring Duke over Clinton, Meurer told me via email:
MEURER: If you ask me they’re both despicable human beings that are in favor of eugenics and are hardcore racists. One is out in the open with their hate (Duke) the other is as stealthy as possible (Clinton). Hilary is calculating and smart. Duke is not. Duke is less dangerous because he is so far over the top that he poses no threat to the minority population because he could never gain a following of any size, unlike Hilary who has millions behind her. Point being I can’t stand either one. But this whole question of choosing the lesser of two evils… I’m just glad I don’t have to make that choice.
