Trump’s White Nationalist Supporters and the Limits of Loyalty

Matthew Heimbach isn’t just any casual Trump supporter.  He’s of the white nationalist variety, and he’s currently on trial in a civil suit for assaulting an African American anti-Trump protester.

Now if he’s so loyal to Trump and to the cause that he thinks Trump stands for, you’d expect him to be willing to take a hit for the chief, for the good of the white-nationalist America that he so ardently loves.  Guess again!  He’s making clear that, as far as he’s concerned, he did what Trump told him to do, and if there’s any liability to be had, it’s Trump and the Trump campaign they should go after.

Poor Trump.  At least his children love him.  (I’m not so sure about his wife at this point, but that’s another story.)
