    According to a 1927 New York Times article, it seems that the father of billionaire Republican presidential candidate and professional bile-spewer Donald Trump may have had ties to the Ku Klux Klan.

    The Times piece, subtitled “Klan Assails Policemen” and recently unearthed by
    Boing Boing, identifies a man named Fred Trump as among those arrested for participating in a brawl between the cops and the Klan. As Talking Points Memo notes, the Queens borough address listed for the arrested man, “172-24 Devonshire Road, Jamaica,” matches the known lifelong residence of the real estate mogul’s father.

    I am only surprised that he was able to keep this a secret so long.

    You are welcome, Destee.

    I hope this news gets to the sistas that are on YouTube "Stumping for Trump" and the other AAs who support him for some hard to understand reason.
