Trump apologizes for Sadiq "Klan" confusion and revokes exception

Donald Trump apologized to London's newly elected mayor Sadiq Khan today for proposing that he might be made an "exception" to any future ban on Muslims entering the US should Trump be elected president. Khan had already rejected the offer.

Trump said that he had been under the mistaken impression that the Right Honourable Sadiq Khan "was a Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan" because of the similarity of the two exotic expressions. Now that the mayor has outed himself as a non-Klan Muslim-Khan, the exception would have to be revoked, Trump told one of our Creditanstalt Information Bureau reporters.

Trump claimed his congenital Alliterative Memory Disorder was responsible for the confusion.

This is not the first time that auditory difficulties have gotten Trump into awkward situations regarding the Klan, according to knowledgeable sources. Last February, for example, he claimed that a faulty earpiece was behind his failure to disavow the support of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke during a CNN interview.

Trump emphasized that an exception could only be entertained if Mayor Khan were willing to don the appropriate attire and give the "Trump salute" at one of his rallies. Moreover, Trump suggested that Khan claim to be of less threatening Indian rather than Pakistani descent, just as he and his father Fred Trump had claimed to be of Swedish, not German descent.
