Hillary Clinton was blaming the victims in San Jose for being beaten. This was the issue Trump should have been focusing on this week, defending his own supporters. That and trying to stir up division between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton supporters.
I agree with Ace, Trump's comments are not "racist" per se. Trump just assumes anyone criticizing him is biased against him. Of course, a lot of politicians think like that (we know how thin skinned Barack Obama is and Hillary Clinton can certainly hold a grudge--and keeps a little list of people who won't be missed). Hillary's hypocrisy is pretty apparent. But this latest stuff from Trump just seems rather nuts and certainly could be spun as racist. So why go there? What's the upside when you end up getting in fights with your own supporters over this?
All Trump managed to do is focus more attention on Trump U fraud case and take attention away from the real racism of Mexican flag waving mobs attacking Trump supporters in San Jose. I also agree with Ace, I don't mind at all Trump taking on the hypocrisy of the media. But this whole Trump U dust up does not seem to be helping Trump or the GOP at all.
I have misread things Trump in the past (I never thought he would get the nomination), but I do not see this boding well for the general election.
But hey, this consummate outsider is bringing in Dick Morris to save the day...
Instapundit: More from San Jose, Roger Simon: Signal v Noise, AoSHQ: Kobayashi-Maru, Hillary victim bashing, identity politics, Dick Morris to join Team Trump?
Legal Insurrection: Republican Senators not on board with slamming Trump U Judge
Why not a bit more of this instead:
Legal Insurrection has more on this Trump PAC attack ad (this is really good)
Twitchy: Paul Ryan and Trump mixing it up (this is going swimmingly)
Free Beacon: More Trump and Ryan (does Trump really think the GOP wants to follow him down this anchor chain)
