The morning after House Speaker Paul Ryan stuffed his remaining dignity in a sack and threw it into the river, he's supposedly reeling from presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's ongoing racial tirades against the judge hearing the case against Trump University. Trump's contribution yesterday was the claim that the U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel had an "absolute" conflict of interest in the case because he was "of Mexican heritage."
Paul Ryan's response to this latest demonstration of Trump's blunt racism?
Oh, yeah. Nobody could have seen that coming.
It still might be better than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's truly pathetic response to Trump's insistence that Americans "of Mexican heritage" ought not judge cases against him (or report on him, or ask him questions at his events, and so forth.)
Your presidential candidate just went on a tirade against a sitting U.S. judge for having "Mexican heritage", and that merely counts as being a "different kind of candidate?"
Wow. That Republican rebranding just keeps picking up steam.
