Hogan Gidley Slams Biden’s Ties To ‘Exalted Cyclops of the KKK’

Listen to “Media manipulation and the presidential debate” on Spreaker.

President Donald Trump’s campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley took CNN anchor John Berman by surprise when he pointed out the FACT that former Vice President Joe Biden once lauded a former KKK member at his funeral.

The two brawled with words over Tuesday night’s debate, and whether or not President Trump significantly condemned white supremacist groups when questioned by Fox News host and moderator Chris Wallace.

“Do you have an idea, John, what an ‘Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, is?” asked Gidley to Berman.

“Because Joe Biden sure does,” added Gidley. “He spoke at a funeral for one and praised him profusely.”

Yikes, the truth hurts. Biden, however, was highly criticized for giving a eulogy in 2010 to late West Virginia Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd. Byrd was a former KKK member, who said later he regretted being affiliated with the KKK. Still, he had belonged to the KKK for some time.

Biden said he saw Byrd as a mentor, yet the press wants to come after President Trump?

In fact, Trump vowed to name Antifa, as well as the KKK, domestic terrorist groups as early as last week, as reported. Moreover, his would not only designate the KKK as a terrorist gorup but will increase access to the amount of capital in Black communities by $500 billion.

“John, when he was asked would he disavow them, would he condemn them, he said ‘sure’ three times in the one clip you just played,” said Gidley. “I don’t know how many other ways you want him to condemn these types of groups.”

Things then got heated when Berman appeared to not accept the answer Gidley was giving him. It got heated!

“This isn’t the debate stage last night,” Berman said while attempting to cut off Gidley. “You will talk when I ask a question.”

“That’s not the way this works,” Gidley responded. “I’ll talk when I want to talk. You’re leveling completely ridiculous charges against a man who has a great record on racial justice in this country.”

I will say that Trump’s response Tuesday night could have been stronger and he could’ve been more outright in his condemnation.

However, Trump had already put this lie to rest years ago and didn’t need to be dragged into the defensive on whether or not he supports white supremacists.

In fact, it’s ludicrous, his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Orthodox Jews and his love for them is pretty obvious.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
