Megyn Kelly may have made some kind of peace with Donald Trump, but it clearly didn’t include holding fire when he’s an ass, as this epic destruction of Trump’s grotesque, racist attacks on the judge presiding over the case against his fraudulent fake University shows:
First of all, people are saying this judge is a member of La Raza, the group that has been protesting Donald Trump. He isn’t. He’s a member of a Hispanic lawyers association that has no partisan stripes whatsoever. They support Hispanic lawyers and judges and that’s it. So let’s be clear on that. Secondly the man is not Mexican. Donald Trump keeps saying he’s a Mexican. He’s American! His parents are Mexican, he’s of Mexican heritage. He was born in Indiana. Third, he has no conflict of interest, Bill. Now Donald Trump is saying the judge needs to be investigated, someONE should look into him. Just because he’s ruled against Trump in this litigation, repeatedly.
B E A -utiful. As Leon has been outlining on the front page today, Trump’s baseless smears against this judge are despicable almost beyond description. What’s worse is the lengths his disgusting “army” will go to now that they have been thus activated. Already the La Raza lie is all over social media.
Kelly, an attorney herself, points out that this sitting federal judge probably facing all kinds of vile attacks and death threats, which everyone who has paid any attention at all this year knows is absolutely right. They definitely will make death threats and harass this judge. It’s the standard procedure for Trump’s minions.
But considering that Judge Gonzalo Curiel faced down the drug cartels and their threats, it’s a good bet he won’t be intimidated by the basement-dwelling hordes of Trumpists that will definitely be coming after him. Not even a little.
Kelly gets it exactly right in this one excerpt, which echoes Leon’s Morning Briefing headline article:
Suggesting he has an inherent, inherent conflict of interest because of his heritage. ‘A Hispanic cannot judge a case against me.’ That is what Trump is saying. Explicitly, Bill.
That is exactly what Trump is doing. He is explicitly and openly stating a judge who is Hispanic is inherently incapable of judging a case involving Trump. It is an astounding statement. Anyone apologizing for it is either dishonest or equally despicable.
Good for Megyn Kelly for this. This video should be shared far and wide. If it weren’t for the idiot protesters stealing all the oxygen, this would, (or at least should) have been top news today. I don’t care what party Trump is pretending to be a part of, or what party may win an election in November, what Donald Trump is doing is dishonest and vile and racist and people should know about it.
The truth is the truth.
