Well, of course:
President Trump on Friday tweeted his support for Charlie Kirk and conservative group Turning Point USA one day after a New Yorker investigation revealed racist text messages sent by a former top official in the organization.
The show of support comes just a day after it was revealed that Turning Point’s former national field director, Crystal Clanton, sent text messages to another staffer during the 2016 campaign expressing her hatred towards African-Americans. Clanton held the second-most-powerful position in Turning Point USA for five years before her resignation.
“I hate black people. Like fuck them all . . . I hate blacks. End of story,” Clanton said in texts to John Ryan O’Rourke, another former Turning Point employee.

“The President has accomplished some absolutely historic things during this past year.” Thank you Charlie Kirk of Turning Points USA. Sadly, the Fake Mainstream Media will NEVER talk about our accomplishments in their end of year reviews. We are compiling a long & beautiful list.
