Donald Trump spent the weekend reminding everyone that he’s really serious about attacking a judge born in Indiana as “Mexican” because the judge has “Mexican heritage” — as only 34.6 million Americans and 7 actual U.S. states do.
In front of any camera with soft lighting he could find, he said the ancestry of Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who’s presiding over a case against Trump University, represented a “conflict of interest” because Latinos obviously hate Trump even though he once proudly enjoyed a taco bowl.
Trump once said about Mexicans who come to America, “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” Sadly, he was unable to identify the real danger: that some of their descendants will become judges.
