“Go Back To Univision!” Trump’s Racist Fans Celebrate After He Boots Jorge Ramos From Presser

On a day when news outlets reported that former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke had thrown his support behind Donald Trump in the 2016 race for the White House, The Donald made sure to let his white racist nativist fans know he had their back. When confronted by highly influential Univision reporter Jorge Ramos at a press conference in Iowa Tuesday, Trump’s first instinct was to kick Ramos out of the room. Ramos, who has tried for months to interview Trump, attempted to press the reality TV star on his rhetoric regarding Mexicans and illegal immigration.

Of course, the Trumpster wasn’t going to let some Mexican-American whose sympathetic to illegals and anchor babies act up in his presence. No, sir. He had security escort them out — he’d later deny he gave the order — and told Ramos to “go back to Univision!” He might as well have told him to go back to Mexico. Trump’s fanatics definitely saw the symbolism in Trump ‘deporting’ a Latino from the room and immediately took to Twitter to revel in their hatred of those goddamned dirty illegal immigrants.

Below is just a taste of what was spewed:



Meanwhile, the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof pointed out just how big of a deal it was to treat Ramos with the disrespect Trump did on Tuesday.


Ramos is probably the most powerful voice for Latinos in America and has been named by Time as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. So, yeah, it was in all likelihood a fucking stupid gesture by Trump to kick him out of his press conference. But Trump doesn’t care. Why? He’s already claimed he’s going to win the Hispanic vote.
