Enthusiastic Donald Trump supporter and self-described “angry white male” Wayne Allyn Root appeared on Newsmax yesterday to discuss the radio interview he was about to conduct with Trump and his conviction that the GOP nominee is actually leading in the presidential race, despite polls showing otherwise.
Root insisted that Trump’s campaign has “all the momentum now,” citing recent news of Obamacare premium hikes and his contention that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server was “completely rigged.” He referenced a report that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC contributed to the state senate campaign of the wife of an FBI official who later became involved in overseeing the investigation; there’s no evidence that the donation had anything to do with Clinton.
“Folks, I’m going on national TV and saying, go in and arrest that FBI agent,” Root declared. “He is a criminal, he is guilty of accepting bribes, this is disgusting. And when Donald wins—it may be because of Obamacare, not this—but when he wins? Guess the first thing he’s going to do. He’s going to prosecute Hillary Clinton and put that woman in prison.”
