NBC has decided to cut ties with Donald Trump as his election year rhetoric on Mexican immigrants has apparently inflamed … Mexican immigrants.
Trump is no stranger to ill-thought remarks and NBC is unabashedly biased.
The Donald made some comments in his June 16th campaign kickoff speech that made the Mexican government a little uneasy. He said “the U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
The Mexican government’s response was to pressure Univision to cancel their contract to air Trump’s Miss USA pageant and soon after to get enough public support against Trump so that NBC would cut ties with the boisterous billionaire.
Where does that lead our badly-coiffed candidate?
What NBC may not realize is the giant favor they’ve done the right. By joining the campaign to color Trump as an enemy of … whatever, he will likely lose his moderate and populist following. Chris Christie and Jeb Bush will be left to fight over the middle.
In an epic bit of karma, Trump’s biggest critique of Carly Fiorina now applies to him too – he’s been fired.
