MINOT, N.D. — Nick Fuentes, a recent Mar-a-Lago dinner guest of disgraced former President Donald Trump, has described Jewish people as “cookies.”
It disgusts me to repeat that slur, even in condemnation, but it’s important for you to know what sort of person we’re dealing with. Fuentes rose to notoriety after attending the infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and has since gathered to himself a cult-like online following built around antisemitism and white supremacy.
“I really like this guy,” Trump reportedly said , during the dinner, to his other guest Kanye West. “He gets me.”
Trump is now trying to distance himself from Fuentes, claiming he didn’t know who this person was, but that’s baloney. Fuentes named his primary platform, a livestream show, after one of Trump’s own slogans: “America First.” And other Trump-world figures, notably Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green and Rep. Paul Gosar , have spoken at events put on by Fuentes.
