JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

A few choice moments from that Trump surrogate conference call, as reported by Bloomberg News ….

On mounting criticism of Trump’s racist tirades against Judge Curiel …

“We will overcome. And I’ve always won and I’m going to continue to win. And that’s the way it is.”

On Trump campaign guidance to surrogates to stop talking about and attacking Judge Curiel …

“Are there any other stupid letters that were sent to you folks? That’s one of the reasons I want to have this call, because you guys are getting sometimes stupid information from people that aren’t so smart.”

On the need for surrogates to attack journalists as the ‘real racists’ …

“The people asking the questions—those are the racists. I would go at ’em.”
