Trump: You Know, That Hitler Lover Had a Pretty Good Point About the Border

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 8:13 am

Ah, the famous Welsh poet Patrick Buchanan. I’m with Michael McKean:

Unlike Trump’s usual bizarre early-morning tweets, this pair of tweets came yesterday evening. After all, old age should burn and rave at close of day.

One thing about Patrick Buchanan: in addition to being “one of the most important Welsh poets of the 20th century” he is also a “Hitler lover.” Wait, who called him that nasty thing? Haven’t you already guessed?

In 1999, Trump called Buchanan a “Hitler lover” and said it was “incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.” Buchanan, who has often been accused of expressing racist and anti-Semitic views, at the time was seeking the Reform Party’s nomination for president.

“Look, he’s a Hitler lover,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” in October 1999. “I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks. He doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”

Anyway, should we be taking a hint from Trump when he quotes a poem about impotently raging against the inevitable?

  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; if the Russians really were trying to help Trump, they’d have hacked his twitter account and locked him out of it.

    He just ruined, simply by inserting Buchanan’s name, what was otherwise a pretty good statement.
