I don't know the details, but I don't think Trump was talking about ALL mexicans, just the illegals that break the law. This seems blown out of proportions. Of course he could have worded things better.
It took two weeks for him to get personally offended by Trump's remarks?
I guess he had to think about it.
More seriously I wonder when we'll see a socially liberal Republican (Republican for economic reasons) take the field. With so many social conservatives simultaneously splitting the bigot vote a Republican that supported gay rights and immigrants could maybe take the lead by getting voters that are dissatisfied with Obama's tax policies but support him and democrats because they don't want to lose rights for themselves or good friends. If a guy like Trump is willing to act like an ass just to get 10% of the vote on the right why won't someone come out and speak sensibly about minorities for 20%?*
*that's just a guess I don't really know how many Republicans are socially liberal or how many Democrats are fiscally conservative and would switch to the right if they felt they had a better option.
I would love to see Hilary run on the republican ticket, for a few reasons. First, for shits and giggles, second because I think she's liberal but leans to the right a little, third it would throw off people voting just for a certain party or gender. Obviously it's not going to happen, but I'd like to see us get away from the dichotomy we see in today's politics
trump has some points about illegals, while other politicians are too PC to offend a voting group. an illegal just randomly killed some girl in SF, perfect timing for Trump. the US is doomed once hispanics become the main voting base the country is going to cater to for votes. its going to turn into some parts of Miami where knowing spanish is a necessity and the country is basically run to appease them.
too bad trump has to run with conservative right wing ideas to get their base votes. he doesn't believe in half the shit he's sided on. i think his main concerns he's really serious about our economy vs China, US business vs taxation/socialist policies, and illegals. he has to side right wing on abortion, gays, etc to get the right wing votes. he basically said as much on Stern.
anyways for how much trump sucks, he at least is willing to fight against the political correct fascism that is taking over and creating policies that aren't directly addressing the country's issues, rather scapegoating them to wrongfully blame. the country is fukked with that type of governance. Ferguson and Baltimore are great examples, look at the aftermath of letting the PC movement have their way.
