The Trump Campaign in a Nutshell: Kicks Out Mexican-American Reporter, Says “Go Back to Univision”

Right wing blogs cheer wildly

This was an absolutely horrifying glimpse of what it would mean if by some chance this caveman is elected president, as Donald Trump had his burly bodyguards eject one of the most popular anchors for Hispanic television network Univision, Jorge Ramos, saying scornfully to him, “Go back to Univision.”

Wow. Just wow. Then Trump described the incident this way: “He stood up and started screaming. He’s obviously a very emotional person.”

Watch the video and see for yourself; Ramos was absolutely not “screaming” or “emotional.”

Social media erupted in outrage, and clearly someone in Trump’s campaign noticed how bad this looked — because they let Ramos back into the press conference and Trump proceeded to argue with him for several minutes.

The Washington Post’s Philip Rucker has an account of that argument:

The next question from Ramos: How do you build a 1,900-mile wall across the U.S. border with Mexico?

“It’s very easy,” Trump said. “I’m a builder…. What’s more complicated is building a building that’s 95 stories tall.”

The questioning continued. At one point, Trump said, “I can’t deal with this.” A Trump aide interrupted and told Ramos, “Is there one question — one question?”

Yet Trump let the questioning continue, seemingly determined to prove his case. “I have a bigger heart than you do,” he told Ramos. “We’re going to do [deportations] in a very humane fashion.”

Trump went on to assert that gang members in Baltimore, St. Louis and other cities are illegal immigrants.

“Listen, we have tremendous crime,” he told Ramos. “We have some very bad ones… Do you mind if I send them back to Mexico?”

Ramos replied, “No human being is illegal, Mr. Trump.”

The response: “Well, when they cross the border, from a legal standpoint, they’re illegal immigrants when they don’t have their papers.”

When Ramos pressed Trump on polls showing his unpopularity with Latinos, Trump would not accept the premise of the question. First, he interrupted Ramos and turned the question on him: “How much am I suing Univision for right now? Do you know the number? I know you’re part of the lawsuit.”

“I’m a reporter,” Ramos said.

“Five hundred million dollars,” Trump replied. “And they’re very concerned about it, by the way. I’m very good at this.”

It’s just unreal to see someone like this holding the right wing base spellbound. The first comment for the YouTube video above:

I don’t support any political candidate(STOP VOTING PEOPLE), but I have to say this is awesome. Trump says he will kick illegals out, and he starts in his press conferences! Good stuff :-)

And this comment is being echoed all across the right wing blogs and media sites tonight. They absolutely loved this awful demonstration of blatant bigotry.
