Here’s what people said about Donald Trump on the Sunday chat shows yesterday. Keep in mind that these quotes are all from Trump’s supporters:
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Trump’s repeated statement that Judge Gonzalo Curiel was biased against him because of his Mexican heritage: “I don’t believe that Donald Trump meant it in the manner that he said it.”
Newt Gingrich on Trump’s constant backtracking: “I think he stands for an evolving process of trying to come to grips with really big problems.”
Sen. Mitch McConnell on whether Trump is qualified to be president: “I’ll leave that to the American people to decide.”
And as long as we’re on the subject of Trump, be sure to check out Michael Finnegan’s piece in the LA Times about Trump’s failed condo development in Baja California: “Most of the Trump Baja condo buyers accused Trump and two of his adult children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., of duping them into believing that Trump was one of the developers, giving them confidence that it was safe to buy unbuilt property in Mexico.” It’s yet more of the usual Trump sleaze.
