GOP leaders in the media are up in arms after Donald Trump re-upped his attacks
on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, saying he could not preside over the Trump University case because of his Mexican Heritage. Governor John Kasich, Senator Jeff Flake and Erick Erickson joined a chorus of Republicans infuriated by Trump’s remarks.
Unfortunately for GOPers up for re-election in 2016, playing dumb is no excuse. Just as Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pointed out this morning
— racist demagoguery is nothing new from Trump. And at the end of the day Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Senators Kelly Ayotte, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Mark Kirk, Ron Johnson, John McCain, Rand Paul, Rob Portman, Pat Toomey, and countless other Republicans will still cast their ballots for Trump.
