Remember during the election when the media kept bringing up David Duke over and over and over again because they thought it was damaging to Trump? How many times was Trump forced to disavow Duke? Twice? Three times? More?
The media has suddenly lost all interest in David Duke. Know why? Because he just endorsed a Democrat.
The Washington Times reports:
David Duke gives ringing endorsement to Keith Ellison for DNC chair
David Duke wants the world to know that he supports Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison’s attempt to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
The former leader of the Ku Klux Klan likely complicated Mr. Ellison’s professional goals Monday by backing his efforts while alluding to claims by critics that he is anti-Semitic.
“Keith Ellison, Sally Boynton Brown or Jehmu Greene would all be excellent choices — I really like Keith though… I mean, at least he knows,” Mr. Duketweeted.
The “at least he knows” remark appears to be a reference to Mr. Ellison’s past with the Nation of Islam and comments about Louis Farrakhan. Charges of bigotry, which the congressman denies, have dogged him since he started running for the coveted DNC job.

Why isn’t anyone in media asking Ellison or other Democrats to disavow Duke?
The answer is pretty obvious, isn’t it?
