Is Trump as ignorant as he acts about KKK?

Washington Times:
Sen. Jeff Sessions, who led the fight against the 2013 Senate immigration bill, endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential bid Sunday, breaking his own precedent to boost the billionaire businessman just ahead of the biggest day on the primary election calendar.

He made the move just hours after Mr. Trump’s campaign veered into nativist territory when he refused in a television interview to condemn the Ku Klux Klan or the racism of former KKK leader David Duke.

In his comments on CNN, Mr. Trump said he didn’t know Mr. Duke, a well-known white supremacist. When specifically prodded to reject the KKK, the candidate declined, saying he didn’t want to tar all groups because “you may have groups in there that are totally fine.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, a fellow presidential candidate, said Mr. Trump’s excuses rang hollow and that the Republican Party should reject him as their nominee.

“We cannot be a party that nominates somebody who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan,” Mr. Rubio pleaded to Republican supporters at a rally in Loudoun County, one of the fast-growing Virginia suburbs of Washington.

Marco Rubio, referring to the KKK's endorsement of Donald Trump, told Virginia Republicans, "We cannot be a party that nominates somebody who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan.
...
 Is the guy really that ignorant?  Or is he just trying to prove that his supporters do not care what he says?  The follow-up question should be to ask him to name some group within the KKK that is "totally fine."   Since the KKK is a branch of the old Democrat coalition why would a Republican find any of them fine?

Well, there is this:
Donald Trump confirms, then denies, his father's arrest at a KKK rally
