The next president of the United States?

Here you go:

He is one racist piece of work. Can anyone still doubt it?

This Trump U thing has him spooked and this means the press needs to dig more deeply into his business dealings. He's got something to hide.  He's muddying the water throwing all kinds of stuff at the wall hoping he can insinuate it's all political. He claims the plaintiff's law firm gave money to Clinton, for instance. Presumably, that's to deflect from this:

Attorneys general in Florida and Texas who declined to pursue lawsuits against the now-defunct Trump University received political contributions from Donald Trump, according to an Associated Press report.

Trump donated $35,000 to the successful gubernatorial campaign of then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott three years after a probe into the university’s "possibly deceptive trade practices" was dropped by his office when the university agreed to cease its Texas operations. 
Abbott's office pushed back against the report in a statement to The Hill on Friday, saying that the then-attorney general was just doing his job. 
“The unthinkable has happened – the media’s obsession with Donald Trump is now leading them to highlight the job then-Attorney General Abbott did in protecting Texas consumers,” said Abbott spokesman Matt Hirsch.
And a political fundraising committee supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi received a $25,000 donation from the Donald J. Trump Foundation just days after her office had announced it was looking into joining a multi-state lawsuit against Trump University. Her office later dropped the inquiry, citing a lack of evidence.

He's definitely getting crispy. He thought he'd already taken the worst hits he was going to get when Marco Rubio said he had small hands. But that was the minor leagues.  All those losers didn't want to alienate Trump's voters so they went easy on him.  This is the big leagues now. And Democrats are laboring under no illusion that hardcore Trumpies are ever going to vote for them.

So far, he's not handling the pressure very well.
