Trifecta

Donald Trump went for the trifecta at a rally in New Mexico on Tuesday.

During a 65-minute speech in Albuquerque last night, Donald Trump laced into New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. He blamed her for the state’s economic problems, for the growing number of food stamp recipients and for not doing more to reject Syrian refugees. The billionaire even mused about moving to the state to run for governor himself.

“She’s got to do a better job,” Trump told thousands of supporters, per Jenna Johnson. “She’s not doing the job. We’ve got to get her moving. Come on: Let’s go, governor.”

So in one long gasping, shuddering breath, he attacked a woman who’s a Latina — the first (and only) Latina governor in the state and the country — and a fellow Republican.

I’m pretty sure that if Gov. Martinez was gay or had a disability he’d have worked that into the rant, too.

4 barks and woofs on “Trifecta

  1. The man has trouble with women, obviously, but this stupidness was his fifth grade persona acting out again. Martinez is a Republican in a blue state, being watched by higher-ups in the GOP for her excellent two terms as governor of New Mexico. Her best days are ahead. Knowing how skilled a politician she is I presume she bypassed the Trump rally and the chance to appear on the stage with him to protect that reputation. He, on the other hand, couldn’t bear the snub. So he did his playground thing again. Any chance his supporters noticed?
