Last night on SNL, “Trump” greeted “Kellyanne” in his New Jersey golf club office by asking whether the country “loves” his appointments so far.
Trump did not become the object of white nationalist affection simply because his positions reflect their core concerns. Extremists made him their chosen candidate and now hail him as “Emperor Trump” because he has amplified their message on social media—and, perhaps most importantly, has gone to great lengths to avoid distancing himself from the racist right.
The white nationalist “alt-right” site The Right Stuff praised Trump’s speech, arguing, “somehow Trump manages to channel Goebbels and ‘Detroit Republicanism’ all at the same time.”
