But first, Patrick Buchanan's latest column, Conquistador Trump, which celebrated Trump's visit to Mexico:
In Mexico City, Trump did that. He reassured voters who are leaning toward him that he can be president. As for those who are apprehensive about his temperament, they saw reassurance.
For validation, one need not rely on supporters of Trump. Even Mexicans who loathe Trump are conceding his diplomatic coup.
“Trump achieved his purpose,” said journalism professor Carlos Bravo Regidor. “He looked serene, firm, presidential.” Our “humiliation is now complete,” tweeted an anchorman at Televisa.
President Nieto’s invitation to Trump “was the biggest stupidity in the history of the Mexican presidency,” said academic Jesus Silva-Herzog.
Not since Gen. Winfield Scott arrived for a visit in 1847 have Mexican elites been this upset with an American.
Jorge Ramos of Univision almost required sedation.Meanwhile at the National Review:
Donald Trump confused many people on Wednesday when he segued from a sedate visit with Mexico’s president on the “humanitarian crisis” of immigration to a raucous rally in Phoenix, where he delivered an uncompromising speech on restricting even legal immigration. In one day, Trump appeared to be both appealing to moderate suburbanites concerned about his tone and dishing out red meat to his base.Read meat to his base?
Good gravy, why not just cut-and-paste Hillary's press releases?
If I want insults from a snob, CNN offers it better and cheaper: "Trump visits Mexico, brings home xenophobic tirade for his base."
