2. Byrd should be slammed for what was real. Not this imaginary "support for the Klan."

By real I mean his habit of grabbing so much highway pork for West Virginia, at one point WV was getting half the highway funding, the rest of the country got the other half.

Byrd's father didn't help matters either, with his tantrum over desegregating schools.

And there was the time several years before he died, when he used the term for "white n*****."

I can't even remember now what it actually was.

Byrd did renounce the Klan.

Trump supporter David Duke still embraces it.
