This is really just plainly silly. Say you’re not a part of the alt-right. Fine. Say it’s a smear. Fine. Say any of the million other things Trump has said about every other angry, violent demographic riding on his coattails. But acting like you don’t even know what it is? Come on, guys.

The whole denunciation and distancing game is silly in politics because politicians rarely offer a substantive denunciation. They rarely return donations or turn away volunteers, for example. With Trump it is even more absurd, since everything he ever says only has about a ten minute shelf-life before he says the opposite.

Conway said she isn’t “that familiar” with the alt-right movement, a sect of hardcore conservatism often associated with white nationalism, though she has read about it. She said the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign has never discussed the movement internally, noting the campaign is “not at all” a platform for it.

“It certainly isn’t part of our strategy meetings. It’s nothing that Mr. Trump says out on the stump,” Conway said.
