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.

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
