NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 6, 2016. On the heels of the Vice Presidential debate, Hillary For America is releasing a new video highlighting Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s insult-driven campaign. Trump began his campaign calling Mexican immigrants “rapists,” “criminals” and “drug dealers;” he’s referred to women as “fat pigs”, “dogs” and “slobs”; said the American people were “stupid” and mocked the physical disability of a reporter. The list goes on and on.

On Tuesday, his running mate wouldn’t defend Trump’s insults. Watch and see if you can blame him…

TRUMP ASKED HOW STUPID THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY AND THE PEOPLE OF IOWA WERE

Trump: “How Stupid Are The People Of Iowa? How Stupid Are The People Of This Country To Believe This Crap?” “In Iowa he continued the strong criticism, telling people at a rally that he didn’t believe Carson’s story of his religious awakening and questioned his tale of nearly stabbing a friend. ‘How stupid are the people of Iowa?’ Trump bellowed during a rally at Iowa Central Community College. ‘How stupid are the people of this country to believe this crap?’” [Donald Trump Rally, Fort Dodge, Iowa, 11/12/15; Associated Press, 11/12/15]

TRUMP SAID THE JUDGE IN THE TRUMP U CASE COULD NOT DO HIS JOB BECAUSE OF HIS MEXICAN HERITAGE

Trump Explained Why Judge Curiel’s Race Made Him Unqualified To Preside Over The Case: “We’re Building A Wall. He’s A Mexican. We’re Building A Wall Between Here And Mexico.” TAPPER: “Is it not – when Hillary Clinton says, this is a racist attack – and you reject that – if you are saying he can’t do his job because of his race, is that not the definition of racism?” TRUMP: “No, I don’t think so at all.” TAPPER: “No?” TRUMP: “No. He’s proud of his heritage. I – I respect him for that.” TAPPER: “But you’re saying he can’t do his job because of that.” TRUMP: “Look, he’s proud of his heritage. OK? I’m building a wall. Now, I think I’m going to do very well with Hispanics.” TAPPER: “He’s a legal citizen.” TRUMP: “You know why I’m going to do well with Hispanics? Because I’m going to bring back jobs, and they’re going to get jobs right now. They’re going to get jobs. I think I’m going to do very well with Hispanics. But we’re building a wall. He’s a Mexican. We’re building a wall between here and Mexico. The answer is, he is giving us very unfair rulings, rulings that people can’t even believe. This case should have ended years ago on summary judgment. The best lawyers – I have spoken to so many lawyers. They said, this is not a case. This is a case that should have ended. This judge is giving us unfair rulings. Now I say why. Well, I want to – I’m building a wall, OK? And it’s a wall between Mexico, not another country.” [The Lead With Jake Tapper, CNN, 6/3/16]
