Donald Trump Is No Conservative - The Atlantic

"...On paper, this is not someone you'd expect to excel in the 2016 Republican Party primary. But Donald Trump is excelling. Thanks to his celebrity, a few epic flip-flops, and his willingness to pander to the most xenophobic element of the GOP's base, the real-estate developer and reality-TV star is polling near the top of the field. While he is unlikely to win the nomination, he may well appear at the presidential debates and continue to tarnish the GOP brand in the eyes of Hispanic voters. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best, Trump said during his official announcement. 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. As execrable as those highly misleading beliefs would be if earnestly held, it is arguably worse for a man to disingenuously stoke xenophobia to advance his political prospects...." see full article

Donald Trump Immigration Statements Draw Criticism, Praise - International Business Times
"...As results of the remarks, NBC and Univision have pulled out of covering the Miss Universe pageant. And facing a major campaign by Hispanic groups, Macy's Inc. announced it would pull Trump's merchandise from its retail stores. It is becoming a nightmare scenario for Republicans, especially those in the establishment wing of the party who have been pushing for years to improve outreach and relationships with Hispanic voters. Latino voters are the fastest-growing constituency in the country, and in the last two presidential cycles they have voted with Democrats. Debating whether Mexican immigrants are rapists is the furthest thing imaginable from the kind of outreach that these Republicans had hoped for...." see full article

First Draft | Today in Politics: A Backlash Costs Donald Trump, and Possibly ... - New York Times

"...Mr. Trump has gone from sideshow to serious problem for Republicans as his comments that Mexican immigrants are rapists and killers risk staining the party.Republicans have struggled with the question of immigration overhaul for years, trying to balance a hard-line stance with the need to appeal to Hispanics. Now they have to say whether they agree with Mr. Trump's views.Democrats relish the situation. Mrs. Clinton called Mr. Trump's remarks emblematic and suggested that they were inappropriate talk-radio fodder...." see full article

Donald Trump surges, and Democrats cheer - Washington Post

"...The comments and many more since have prompted an uproar among Latino groups and a series of acrimonious break-ups between Trump and various corporate partners. His outlandish rhetoric and skill at occupying the national spotlight is also proving to be dangerously toxic for the GOP brand, which remains in the rehabilitation stage after losing the 2012 presidential race.Univision said it would not air his Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants; Trump sued the Spanish-language television network for $500 million. NBC Universal severed all ties to him this week, including his Apprentice reality series; he called the network so weak and so foolish. ..." see full article

The Super-Quick Implosion of Donald Trump's Candidacy - Huffington Post

"...So it's no surprise that Trump wasted no time in creating a worldwide stir which imploded his 2016 presidential candidacy. Astonishingly, his ship actually sank during his announcement speech less than two weeks ago at NYC's Trump Tower. He hadn't even left the building and his nascent campaign was, for all intents and purposes, already over. So what actually happened at that podium? Simple. Trump opened his mouth. That's it. Normally, when Trump opens his mouth, a cacophony of ignorant, narrow-minded incendiary rhetoric gets regurgitated. In this case, it was of the xenophobic variety:..." see full article

Donald Trump talks himself right out of NBC's plans - Washington Post

"...NBC was about done with Donald Trump even before he piped up about undocumented immigrants. Now it's really, really done.The real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate lost a longtime business partner on Monday when NBC decided it had had enough of Trump. The network and its parent company, NBC Universal, said it was severing all business ties with Trump, a divorce sparked by Trump's declaration earlier this month that those who enter the country illegally from Mexico are rapists and drug runners...." see full article

Kaplan: NBC dropping Donald Trump will cost him - New York Daily News
"...Make no mistake, Trump, his pageants and even "The Apprentice" will be back on TV somewhere down the line as soon as he realizes there's not a snowball's chance of him trading his opulent Midtown digs for the White House.NBC sources tell us that network executives have put up with the Donald's bombastic statements for years but drew the line this time because he's running for President and his comments this time were so offensive, particularly to their millions of Hispanic viewers."Enough!," an NBC executive told us Monday. "We've simply had enough."A second source said that NBC has been looking for a way to extract itself from Trump for some time and finally found a way, "because these contracts are complicated and messy."..." see full article
