Nothing about the Trump blitzkrieg so far suggests that his public diminution of Jorge Ramos is going to be an overstep in the nakedest political sense. In truth it's not clear what line he would have to cross to alienate the mass of aggrieved supporters egging him to to stick it to the women and minorities with abandon. (Amanda Marcotte writes at TPMCafe, "If he went beyond just saying nasty things and honked someone’s boob in public, that might be a step too far." But I'm not sure, honestly, that that would be the last straw either.)
But whether it hurts Trump narrowly in the short term is very different from the accumulating damage he is doing to the GOP among Hispanics. We talked with Hispanic political types to get a read on the Ramos fallout and on the broader reaction to the Trump candidacy.
“When Jorge Ramos was being escorted out of the room for demanding for his rights, it was is as if every other Latino American was being escorted out of the room for demanding for their rights,” one Latino GOP consultant told us.
