On the heels of several major corporations distancing themselves from Donald Trump's various business interests, the Republican presidential candidate admitted Saturday that he didn't think the corporate backlash to his inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants would be "quite this severe."
"I knew it was going to be bad because I was told this. All my life I have been told this: If you are successful, you don't run for office," Trump said in an interview on Fox News, addressing the recent spate of businesses that have severed their relationships with his brand. "I didn't know it was going to be quite this severe, but I really knew it was going to be bad."
So as you can see Trump is still unable to fault entirely fault himself for making those racist comments about Mexicans, and instead tries to spin this as some prejudice against "successful" people running for office. Because you know we've never elected a successful man as President in this country.
Well despite Trump's attempts to deflect, the negative reactions to his comments keep right on coming:
For instance Mexico's largest television network has cut ties with Trump.
NACAR is now refusing to hold its annual Camping World Truck Series Awards Banquet at the Trump National Doral Golf Club Hotel in Miami.
And now even Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney have condemned his remarks as well.
And of course this all comes on the heels of NBC dumping "The Apprentice" and Macy's dropping his clothing line.
All of this has caused Trump to label himself "America's whipping post."
And we all thought that Sarah Palin was the queen of self pity and victimization.
I don't know about anybody else but I can hardly wait to see Trump up on the debate stage with the rest of the GOP clown car. That is going to be some "must see TV."
