Conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt says Donald Trump refusing to disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke is akin to “Mitt Romney’s 47 percent moment” and is “inexplicable.”

In an interview on “CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello” on Monday, Hewitt argued, “I don’t know what Donald was thinking yesterday. He had denounced David Duke two days earlier. It’s inexplicable.” (VIDEO: Trump’s Excuse For Not Disavowing KKK: ‘I Had A Lousy Earpiece’)

“You know, I can’t imagine anyone who wants to be president not knowing who David Duke is,” Hewitt said. “It’s like Mitt Romney’s ’47 percent’ moment, it’s one of those. It’s like Gerald Ford saying ‘Poland is free’ in the 1976 debates.”

“It’s like Hillary Clinton saying she left the White House ‘impoverished,'” Hewitt claimed. “It’s like Hillary Clinton saying she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary. She’s got a long list of these as well but none of them would be as devastating on election weekend in November as this one.”
