Who Were the Mysterious Folks in KKK Garb Spotted With Pro-Trump Signs at Nevada Caucus Location? Some Say Their Hands Give It Away.

No one’s disputing that a pair of characters draped in Ku Klux Klan garb and carrying pro-Donald Trump signs showed up at a Nevada caucus location Tuesday night — but the question of the moment is, “Who are they?”

Kevin Smith posted this photo and said he saw the pair up close. “Who on the Democrat side … set this up?” he asked:

Smith added in a follow-up tweet that “the one on the right had a black hand”:

Krystal Heath, station manager at KXVL-FM — a ministry of Liberty Baptist Church in Las Vegas — posted this photo:

Will Bunch, a left-leaning writer for the Philadelphia Daily News, had his doubts about the legitimacy of the pair’s intentions:

In response, Nelson said he figured they were anti-Trump people but that he didn’t see their hands and that it didn’t matter:

Gina Lazara of KTNV-TV posted a photo of the pair credited to Ryan Hendricks:

As it happens, Hendricks is a self-described “filmmaker, entrepreneur, feminist” who’s no fan of Trump, and he told the station about his interaction with two fellas in the KKK robes:
