Trump's 'Mexican judge' mistake is costly

Washington Examiner:
GOP turns on Trump after 'racist' judge comments
Trump's attempt to short circuit the fallout from the Trump U suit has backfired on his big time.  There are ways you can challenge a judges ruling and his fairness without being seen as a racist and
Trump ignored them, including a piece by former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Trump was probably trying to mitigate the damage caused by the suit and instead amplified it and played into the characterization of him as a racist.  The political fallout within the GOP was significant and some even suggested his nomination might be challenged at the convention if he did not back off his claims against the judge.

It was clearly not a smart move on his part, and it challenged the cottage industry of people who try to rationalize some of his controversial statements.
