    In the run up to Super Tuesday primaries, most which occur in southern states, Trump refused to disavow David Duke and the KKK.

    "I have to look at the group. I mean, I don't know what group you're talking about," Trump said. "You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I'd have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong."

    Tapper responded: "OK. I'm just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here."

    Asked if he'd broadly distance himself from those groups, Trump demurred, saying he knew nothing about their support for his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

    I did not see this, but it sounds like material for a Democratic campaign commercial.

    Trump also said:

    From: http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/02/28/donald-trump-declines-to-disavow-david-duke/

    “Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with CNN. “I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.”

    Mr. Duke has not formally endorsed Mr. Trump, but he has embraced the Republican presidential candidate’s cause wholeheartedly.

    If Trump really is that obtuse and unaware he certainly is not qualified to be president.

    Trump was making fun of Tapper and his ridiculous question and he was too self absorbed to even realize it.
