Donald Trump’s campaign blamed a “database error” Tuesday for his staff selecting self-avowed white nationalist William Johnson as a delegate for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer.

Johnson is the chairman of the American Freedom Party, which says it protects the interests of “White Americans” and presumably also “Guys who prefer to watch ‘Roots’ backwards and think Jackie Robinson ruined baseball.”

Now that Trump’s database is being fixed, it can go back to what it was always intended to do — track all Muslims.
