Happy days for anti-Trumpers

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” — Donald Trump, presidential candidacy announcement speech, June 16, 2015

OH IT'S BEEN really fun, hasn't it, watching that "waste of protoplasm" (one friend's description of the entity otherwise known as The Donald) getting clobbered?!!

Soooo presidential.

Univision announced will not air the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. 

— A Trump-head piñata is being manufactured and sold in Mexico

NBC announced that it has also dumped Trump.  The network will no longer air the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, and Trump will no longer appear on NBC show The Apprentice. More than 200,000 people signed a Change.org petition that said:

"Please cancel Miss USA, Miss Universe and the Apprentice. You are supporting a hateful and narcissistic individual without any kind of values, both personal and business wise. Not only that, but you are supporting a growing trend of bigotry and division in this country."

(A good reminder to all of us that petitions can make a difference.)

— All of the co-hosts for the upcoming Miss USA pageant have cancelled. Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, Puerto Rican singer and actress Roselyn Sanchez, Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente and Colombian reggaeton star J. Balvin have all pulled out of the July 12 pageant. 

Mexico announced today that it will not be sending a contestant to the Miss Universe pageant.

— I discovered today that there is a Facebook page called Donald Trump Is an Idiot. C'mon, there had to be, right?!

And what does The Donald do? Like always, he just doubled down. Below is some of the text from his interview with Jake Tapper on June 28, 2015.

Come on other Latin American countries — pull out of his stupid pageant!!
