Yes, condemned by everyone except all of the people who still support him.

u/evil420pimp Nov 26 '22

I've a coworker that has switched to DeSantis specifically because of this meeting.

But not because of the nazi. He's totally convinced that Kanye is playing trunp and is a secret communist.

Trump embracing a nazi, Hitler, or anything antisemitic is so 2016...

u/dawinter3 Nov 26 '22

If I had a dollar for every secret communist in American politics today, I still couldn’t afford an Arizona Tea.

Secret communist = Black guy

u/evil420pimp Nov 26 '22

He's one of those "I'm not racist, but here's a statement denigrating an entire race" type of people.

12

u/Trips89 Arizona Nov 26 '22

I also imagine he’s one of those “I don’t care if someone’s gay I just don’t want them shoving it in my face” type of people.

5

u/evil420pimp Nov 26 '22

You obviously have met this man before...

5

u/Gorilladaddy69 Nov 27 '22

Me: “What do you mean by shoving it in your face?”

“I mean talking about it, holding hands in public, wearing anything rainbow, hanging flags, having it mentioned on shows or movies or video games, have that gross shit taught in schools or sex ed, or in books, them having parades or publicly saying ‘its okay’ to be gay, people changing laws so that they can get married, forcing people to serve them, or in general these queers NOT feeling like they’re disgusting freaks who should lock themselves in their house from public view because they’re living abominations that make me uncomfortable.”

“Cool, nice tolerance man.”

u/ParadeSit Colorado Nov 26 '22

Trump’s already starting the “I didn’t even know who it was” line of bullshit. He’s so predictable.

57

u/Frankenmuppet Nov 26 '22

Which leads me to 'believe' Trump allows complete and total strangers into his home and just feeds them a private supper

19

u/Michael_In_Cascadia Nov 26 '22

They said "Mar-a-Lago is the place you ought to be" / So they loaded up the truck and moved to Floridy.

u/hobbes64 Nov 26 '22

"I don't even know who David Duke is"

-Man who talked about him on tv only a few years prior.

u/HorseLooseInHospital America Nov 26 '22

look, I've never heard of Nick Fuentes, never even seen him before this, and Ye called me and he said, "Sir, I'd love to have Dinner with you, Sir, and I want my friends to meet the Most Incredible President we've ever had," and I said that sounds ok, and they came, and we didn't talk much, and we were in a very beautiful place, Mar-A-Lago, incredibly expensive, very exclusive, and you know you would never get that if Obama was still destroying us, we had a Terrible Economy, No Military, No Jobs, almost 100% Unemployment, then I come in, and away we go, I had the Best Jobs, Best Numbers, Incredible Economy, we did a lot, and our Military was in Tip Top Shape until Sleepy Joe. you look at it now, we're running out of Army Tanks, they have no Soldiers, we're almost a Shadow, and it only took the Democrats less than 2 years to break our Country, our Beautiful Country. they don't even do The Pledge anymore. under Trump we said it every day, and don't forget I brought back Merry Christmas. it was dead, nobody was saying it, but then I brought it back. just the other day I had some very Big and Strong Men, Strong, Very Good Looking, even better than Tom Cruise if you can believe it, he likes me a lot by the way, and he's said a lot of nice things about me so I can't complain, but they came up, tears in their eyes, "Mr. President, Sir, thank you for saving Christmas and for saving The Bible, and most of all God and Jesus," and I said it's not a problem, not a problem. sometimes I'm just too nice.

u/ParadeSit Colorado Nov 26 '22

I think they talked about windmills.

u/sweetdick Nov 27 '22

I thought it was fake til I saw the Random capitalization.

u/Flashy_Attitude_1703 Nov 26 '22

Wouldn’t someone running for president have one of their staff to vette dinner guests to prevent this sort of screw up?

1

u/The_Yarichin_Bitch Nov 26 '22

Didn't he say that last time he was in some way talking to this dude or he got brought up? And someone explained to him? So this is just proof he's mentally unfit lmao.

u/sweetdick Nov 27 '22

Remember when he passed that test that proved he hadn’t had catastrophic brain injury? And then ran around bragging about it for six months like you just been accepted to Menza?

It’s in this article that he says Kanye showed up with people whom he knew nothing about.

31

u/Marvin_Frommars Nov 26 '22

Kanye West is friends with Nick Fuentes? That relationship is more confusing than the Conway's.

4

u/sweetdick Nov 27 '22

I am a small, petty man. When Kanye West said the whole “I can say antisemitic things and Adidas can’t drop me, what now?” bit it warmed the cockles of my broken, petty little heart. I love watching idiots ruin their own lives.

1

u/bloodmonarch Nov 27 '22

Easy. Both hate jews.

15

u/popsy13 Nov 26 '22

He’s said via his fake Twitter, that Kanye turned up and had some friends with him that TFG didn’t know:

“Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was asking me for advice concerning some of his difficulties, in particular having to do with his business. We also discussed, to a lesser extent, politics, where I told him he should definitely not run for President, “any voters you may have should vote for TRUMP.” Anyway, we got along great, he expressed no anti-Semitism, & I appreciated all of the nice things he said about me on “Tucker Carlson.” Why wouldn’t I agree to meet? Also, I didn’t know Nick Fuentes.”

7

u/Imacatdoincatstuff Nov 26 '22

was asking me for advice concerning some of his difficulties, in particular having to do with his business

Vintage Trump. His base now primed to accept whatever he says next as not his fault.

7

u/ronerychiver Nov 26 '22

If a five year old came to me and said that, I would immediately assume that he had made antisemitic jokes and was best friends with Nick Fuentes

3

u/NicPizzaLatte Nov 27 '22

Anyway, we got along great, he expressed no anti-Semitism, & I appreciated all of the nice things he said about me

Lol

u/No-Consideration6589 Nov 26 '22

What about the others he’s dined with? I’m sure Nick isn’t the one and only white supremacist Donny has dined with.

20

u/SoyEseVato Nov 26 '22

This one is a vocal Hitler / Nazi sympathizer.

12

u/debzmonkey Nov 26 '22

And a Holocaust denier, which is an odd thing since you'd think that would be a bragging point for a rabid anti-Semite.

3

u/rimjobnemesis Nov 26 '22

And a Putin lover.

9

u/evil420pimp Nov 26 '22

What about the others he’s dined with? I’m sure Nick isn’t the one and only white supremacist Donny has dined with.

There were at least two supporters of Hitler at that table, and only one was a guest.

3

u/cp_shopper Nov 26 '22

Well to be fair he has had a lot of dinners with republicans

10

u/nighthawkcoupe Nov 26 '22

So two white supremacists dined together.

And I'll bet not one of his supporters "condemns" this.

2

u/fourbian Nov 26 '22

Exactly. Why is this headline trying to pretend djt isn't a white supremacist?

9

u/ford7885 Nov 26 '22

Guess what Cheeto? Nicky doesn't think you won the election. It's probably the only factual thing he will admit to. He's totally down with dictatorships though.

u/Thankkratom Nov 26 '22

I can’t make it more than 30 second watching the fucker before I start thinking thoughts that can get me banned on reddit.

u/Cid-Itad Nov 26 '22

I don't see Fox or any GOP politicians condemning this so it must be OK in their book.

5

u/AcrobaticSource3 Nov 26 '22

This will spur an increase in donations from his base

5

u/i-have-a-kuato Massachusetts Nov 26 '22

Nick Fuentes also known as one side of the “very fine people”

Shortly trump will announce that he only dined “very fine” side of Fuentes… you know the donating side of Fuentes

5

u/Da_Stable_Genius Florida Nov 26 '22

And of course Trump is stating he "didn't know who he was".

Like clockwork.

4

u/Charger525 Nov 26 '22

His base didn’t care when he hired Steve Bannon another white nationalist, they’re not gonna care that he had lunch with another one.

u/squidmanwillie Nov 26 '22

This is it. The thing that’s finally gonna end his political career. I’m dubbing it … dinnergate

u/andrizella Nov 26 '22

Eating with a black guy, who is begging you to be his running mate, while also dining with a white supremacist...when did Monty Python start writing Donald drumpf's life script?

1

u/theotterway Nov 26 '22

About 20 years ago.

u/OJkindadidit Nov 26 '22

Ok, and on to his next transgression.

u/SpacyTiger Illinois Nov 26 '22

Fascist dines with white supremacist, film at 11.

2

u/adamiconography Florida Nov 26 '22

I wonder if the moving condemnation from the GOP against Trump holds steady if he somehow wins the primary.

I wonder if they’ll keep with their distance or immediately go back to kissing his butthole.

2

u/Frankie6Strings Connecticut Nov 26 '22

Very fine people

2

u/offroadingJoe Nov 26 '22

But...are we surprised? No. We are not.

2

u/vpac22 Nov 26 '22

He knows he needs white supremacist support to have any hope of winning in 24. Also, he is a white supremacist, along with a good portion of the GOP.

2

u/cp_shopper Nov 26 '22

Ya but Obama put fancy mustard on his hotdog

2

u/TuniBoo Nov 26 '22

tRump doesn't care. He could go on national TV to do a reality show where he clubs baby seals and rapes infants; and his base would be absolutely fine with it. tRump voters only care about getting a bigoted white supremicist back in office.

2

u/[deleted] Nov 26 '22

From the Anti Defamation League:

Nicholas Fuentes is a white supremacist leader and organizer and podcaster who seeks to forge a white nationalist alternative to the mainstream GOP

I'm sure Ye will be just fine in a white nationalist world.

2

u/AssociateJaded3931 Nov 26 '22

But decent people won't eat with Trump, so he's reduced to this.

2

u/bluebelt California Nov 27 '22

Hell, even indecent people won't eat with Trump. He's reduced to the fucking dregs of humanity at this point.

2

u/carpetbagger001 Nov 26 '22

Nick should be ashamed

2

u/Pink_Sky_ Nov 26 '22

How does a man with that last name get into white supremacy?

2

u/Jimbo415650 Nov 26 '22

He has many white Christian nationalists supporters. This won’t hurt him

2

u/broccoli15 Nov 26 '22

Trump also dined with anti-Semite Kanye west. We just ignoring that part of this trio?

2

u/RipCityGringo Oregon Nov 27 '22

Alternate Title

Trump condemned celebrated by his MAGA base for dining with white supremacist Nick Fuentes.

2

u/sandysanBAR Nov 27 '22

The big story is the same

"Democrats, anti-raclst groups and SOME Republicans denounce......."

Some?

What's the number of times to meet a white supremacist before it becomes too much?

The number used to be one.

2

u/DadBodybuilder Nov 27 '22

The different sizes of the stars on the flags really bugs me.

2

u/KamSolis Nov 27 '22

I’m thinking they are really condemning him for the poor midterm results. This is not the first time he has hobnobbed with or defended White supremacists. The gop never gave a shit before.

3

u/UnpopularBastard Nov 26 '22

Dear Spanish brethren, stop pretending you are white & voting against your best interests. They don’t want you on their team.

2

u/linguisitivo Nov 26 '22

Stop trying to lump us from LatAm into a group.

Also, the ‘Spanish’ are literally European. We just speak their language.

The equivalent would be for me to call you British brethren.

u/risebelow Nov 26 '22

A: Hispanics and Latinos are often white. B: it's pretty pathetic to try and racially segregate people through shame.

u/skimble-skamble Maine Nov 26 '22

We got him, lads. He'll never come back from this one.

2

u/SoyEseVato Nov 26 '22

We can only hope.

u/Ihreallyhatehim Nov 26 '22

I want him to stay in long enough to prevent DeSatan from becoming President.

u/Godsarefakezz Nov 26 '22

He’s just another conservative. How is this any different from the other people he hangs out with?

11

u/beedubaya Nov 26 '22

Nick Fuentes advocates for all gay people to be executed through torture executions on live TV.

3

u/Godsarefakezz Nov 26 '22

Well conservatives will find a reason to defend him.

u/prompt_skeptic69 Nov 26 '22

His only friends are radicals.

u/MJTony Nov 26 '22

Condemned? Unlikely. Everyone will forget about it tomorrow when he does something else.

1

u/punhere22 Nov 26 '22

Who cares? It's not as though anyone normal will want to eat with him.

1

u/AltNationReality Nov 26 '22

Sometimes it's too easy to pick on trump. This time, all you have to do is sit back and watch trump put a gun to his own head and fire. What.... a.... white..... supremacist..... would.... do..... is invite a very well known white supremacist to Thanksgiving dinner.

1

u/paintamare Nov 26 '22

Pretty sure Boebert condemned him right?

1

u/DorisCrockford California Nov 26 '22

Says Ye invited himself over, then brought three strangers with him. If this isn't a lie, then what the hell kind of a place is Trump running? Is he so desperate for company that people can just waltz in there without an invitation? It's either a lie or he's quite a pushover. "Sure, your little friends can come with you! It's not like I'm a presidential candidate or something!"

1

u/BabySealOfDoom Nov 26 '22

You could also say, Fuentes condemned for dining with white supremacist Donald Trump

1

u/Adddicus Nov 26 '22

Yeah, but didn't you hear? He didn't know him. So it's all okay.

1

u/Frogmarsh Nov 26 '22

He just gathered with his loved ones for the holiday, correct?

1

u/Shanda_Lear Nov 27 '22

Yesterday a website sported the delightful headline 'Trump has Nick Fuentes for Dinner at Mar-a-Lago.'

They changed it after I commented "With some fava beans and a nice chianti?"

1

u/Global_Box_7935 Nov 27 '22

Right, you say that, but he won't lose voters. In fact, he'll probably get more

1

u/MynameisJunie Nov 27 '22

Well, now we know for sure, for sure, for sure, that anyone that votes for Trump is super racist!! Why is it a big deal now, when he was condoning it his whole presidency??? What twilight zone episode are we in?????

1

u/Alternative-Flan2869 Nov 27 '22

Condemned by maga republicans?

-3

u/50Tre3s Nov 26 '22

I use to work in the fields here in Oregon with a nazi low rider gang member. He was the only white boy on the job and he was cool with all of us Mexicans. He was never disrespectful.

u/navenager Nov 27 '22

Yea cause you outnumbered him. I'm sure he'd sing a different tune if all his buddies were around.

0

u/50Tre3s Nov 27 '22

Who knows..The guy joined a prison gang out of necessity to survive in there. But out here with us was respectful never disrespected. It was weird the first time I heard about it and he showed me his tattoos. I was looking at my people like yo wtf lol but he always kept it chill. I would give him food sometime I would even drop him off at his pad sometimes.

-19

u/lastcore Nov 26 '22

Maybe if the left didn’t call everyone a nazi and white supremacist then the right would actually believe it when people say it.

11

u/Noiserawker Nov 26 '22

Maybe strawman are made of straw

6

u/risebelow Nov 26 '22

Nick Fuentes believes that whites who marry blacks are dirty mixing and that whites enslaving people is proof of their superiority and that Jews control everything and are actively trying to replace Christian whites.

-3

u/lastcore Nov 26 '22

If it is true. Then that’s horrible.

But again. The left says those type of things about all republicans.

3

u/risebelow Nov 26 '22

Well, thank you for your viewpoint. I encourage you to look it up. Do you honestly believe the left saya racist things equal to this?

-2

u/lastcore Nov 27 '22

I didn’t say it was equal. Good job reading and not assuming.

I am merely saying that the left has watered down the word racist and white supremacist.

1

u/risebelow Nov 28 '22

I asked you a clarifying question to determine what you think. You actually did say "the left says those types of things about all republicans." In direct response to my pointing out horribly racist and anti-semetic bullshit said by Fuentes. Do you understand how one could conclude that you are attempting to use equivocation to defend such disgraceful things?

2

u/Kindly_City_3491 Nov 26 '22

Trump-licker! 🤣

Yer spare parts bud! 🤣

u/Leaning_right Nov 26 '22

He went there with Ye..

There is something incongruent with your hate math.

Did you divide by inclusivity?

Did you remember to carry over the 'meaningless division?'

u/omniocracy Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

Doesn't Kanye hang out with Candace Owens who said that Hitler was "okay"?

I can’t find anywhere of Nick Fuentes claiming white supremacy. Can anyone help?

u/dftitterington Nov 26 '22

Just listen to him or read his wiki

-4

u/Unhappy-Profit-5353 Nov 27 '22

Weird that a white supremacist would associate himself with Kanye west but okay

5

u/dftitterington Nov 27 '22

White supremacists love West and Owens and other POC who promote European supremacy and Christian supremacy. Also Black people can be white supremacist as gay people can be homophobic.

2

u/navenager Nov 27 '22

It's almost like people aren't defined by their race or sexuality.

Fuentes, is that an Irish name??

u/theilluminati1 Nov 26 '22

How is a clown with a last name of 'Fuentes' a white supremacist? Guy is confused and brainwashed as all hell.

Only in 'Murica, eh??
