Georgia C-SPAN Caller Rips Trump's GOP As Modern-Day KKK: We Have a 'Grand Wizard in the White House'

A Georgia C-SPAN caller identified as Michelle compared President Donald Trump to a KKK leader during a Tuesday morning segment.

She began by criticizing a GOP candidate for governor.

“I want to tell you that here in Georgia, we have a candidate by the name of Brian Kemp who we know is a klansman,” Michelle said. “He has been touting what he is going to do to blacks and Latinos in the district.”

Kemp is best-known for his voter suppression efforts as the state's attorney general.

Michelle claimed she and her husband had 30,000 t-shirts made that read: “A vote for the Republican Party is a vote for the Klan.”

Then the caller connected Trump himself to the KKK.

“We have the grand wizard in the White House,” she said. “We are going to be out there in full force.”
