“He is just as American as Donald Trump.”
ICYMI, Donald Trump has tripled (quadrupled? quintupled?) down on his racist attacks on Mexican-American judge Gonzalo Curiel. Curiel is currently presiding over the Trump University fraud lawsuit and has ordered the release of sealed documents that all but prove that it was one big scam. But as the non-partisan Politifact has noted repeatedly, facts don’t matter to Donald Trump. Curiel, according to Trump, is unqualified to judge him and his scammy ways because of his Mexican heritage.
Curiel was born in Indiana to Mexican parents. In fact, Curiel’s father came to the United States well before Donald Trump’s own mother, who at the time was exactly the type of immigrant that Trump has denounced.
That was the last straw for Republican strategist Ana Navarro, who went on CNN to call Trump out on his blatant racism. Navarro stood up to her party’s presumptive presidential nominee by accusing him of trying to distract the public from the Trump University scam. And she didn’t stop there. She went on for a full minute roasting Trump.
In the end, Navarro left viewers — and probably Trump — with this little piece of advice:
“If this is his strategy to win over Hispanics, he’s got a hell of a wake-up call coming to him come November.”
