Oxford student who wore KKK costume to party faces punishment — but says it was all about Trump

Published

on

An Oxford University student who dressed up as a Ku Klux Klan member issued an apology — and then blamed President Donald Trump for his despicable actions.

Benedict Aldous, 19, claims his antics were purely ‘satire’ and were intended to draw attention to Trump’s possible connections to KKK members, according to the Daily Mail.

Aldous has since been banned from all future social events after he attended last year’s Christ Church College Bop donning a pillowcase with slits for eyes.

“I did not intend to offend anyone and removed the costume within two minutes of arriving after realizing the inappropriateness of it,” Aldous said.

The party occurred back in December 2016, but Aldous was only recently punished and identified.

Aldous’ apology wasn’t enough to alter the final decision.

The Christ Church dean, The Very Revd Professor Martyn Percy, said Aldous’ behaviour was “completely unacceptable.”

Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter.”

President Donald Trump’s new acting intelligence director, Richard Grenell, used to do consulting work on behalf of an Eastern European oligarch who is now a fugitive and was recently barred from entering the U.S. under anti-corruption sanctions imposed last month by the State Department.

In 2016, Grenell wrote several articles defending the oligarch, a Moldovan politician named Vladimir Plahotniuc, but did not disclose that he was being paid, according to records and interviews. Grenell also did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which generally requires people to disclose work in the U.S. on behalf of foreign politicians.
