[or wherever ]” …
… and the reporter WAS from Univision. Although Jorge Amos is technically Mexican-American and we don’t know yet how TRUMP falls on ‘those’. SO cue-bald Stern Security(!) came to escort the still querying fellow out the back door and MSNBC changed their neon breaker-breaker headline. Kasie Hunt said later it was “a tense moment”, understatement of the night.
Overstatements are complimentary and plentiful.
Lawrence O’Donnell wrapped it well:

Then, reporters started to question the ejection and the Trump brain had figured out he’d pooed the TRUMP mattress.
“Oh, he can come back now…” Trump begins to caveat, adding it to the ameliorative end of nearly-stunned questions about the unusual Presser etiquette.
Clean-up In Aisle TRUMP later he takes the very prestigious Univision anchor back in, and insults him!! Shows no patience in dealing with the difference in Queens to Mexico City accent differential, and starts to attack him personally while making himself look like a … politician. Trading barbs with real intent to draw blood.
A seasoned Univision journalist, Ramos has previously said publicly that
Über-Loser Candidate Trump is “spreading hate” with tirades in stadiums et al on “illegal immigrants.”
This time Maddow had the real goods on that exchange, and it’s worth the listen.
“I can’t deal with this.” … began the whirring of the vaunted Trump Whine. Dismissive, condescending, confrontational, viscerally contemptuous of, egoist in the extreme, belligerent, over-aggressive, anti-fair-debate-rules-anywhere-ever, bellicose and WWF Level dramatic … Voilà the real Trump.
Already a politician. He’s just been hiding it rather well in the lengthy barrage of ‘baffle’ em with bullshit’ summer he has enjoyed. As Nicole pointed out here early / that oft oracle Digby warned, Take TRUMP lightly at our own peril.
This is more than the summer of our collective discontent, this is suddenly and clearly the year Malconts Rule and whomever carries that message furthest is king or queen. The only person who has earned that mantle is Bernie.
But we have been unable to operate democracy properly as of late, and this is a Biblical cycle. I mean Lightning struck the Capitol Dome, a Third Shrub is headed for the GOPperBuckle, a historic drought brought pestilence on Burning Man and my to the va-jay-jay core felt sisterhood-badly for Megyn Kelly.
It’s all a crap shoot now, any sentient leader of a Universe larger than us has to have thrown up their hands in despair while convulsing in gales of laughter.
And son of a mother, centuries ago I did a major thesis on All the King’s Men. I recommend reading it as well, beats anything Anyl Rand penciled.
If only to intellectually counter-weight the universal irony that certifiably rabid blonde Ann Coulter is proudly riding the bow of S.S. Team Trump. Whose latest shite-between-endpapers is ¡Adios America! complete with condescending punctuation. I’m sure she too pays and loves and actually sells books to thousands of imaginary Spanish-speaking immigrants.
She, Ann Coulter aka the Divil, introduced him in Dubuque following the Presser from Hades.
TRUMP wants the election TOMORROW because he knows he’s morphing into a power-pimping pol. Just like the other guys. Not exceptional. Not the greatest. I feel liberal women have a perfect right to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo if she persists in self-identifying as a fair and balanced journalist/spokesmodel (not that I’d ever do such a thing); but it feels downright patriarchally bully-some from TRUMP in a way that unpredictably crosses all aisles and borders. And hair shades.
Move over Rosie, Megyn is going to need room in the big canoe of women rowing their way to the impending mass hurling of colorful curses and female-hoisted pitchforks at TRUMP. I’ll say it again. The Republicans are succeeding in producing to rare reviews, the first phases of The Apprentice: Crowning the King of the Arseholes.
