• Univision President Compared Donald Trump to the Charleston Shooter

    The feud between Donald Trump and Latin Americans reached new heights Thursday when Univision announced that it wasn’t going to air Donald Trump’s Miss USA pageant after the Republican presidential candidate commented about how Mexico is sending the worst immigrants to America.

    Mexico is “not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with them. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said last week during his presidential announcement speech.

    Those words prompted Univision president of programming and content, Alberto Ciurana, to post this disgusting photoshopped meme to his personal Instagram account:


    Here’s a bit more perspective on the matter from the Washington Free Beacon:

    Just days before Univision announced it would host a Republican debate, one of its top executives likened a Republican candidate to alleged mass murderer Dylann Storm Roof.

    Alberto Ciurana, Univision’s president of programming and content, made a post on his official Instagram account last week that appeared to indicate that there were similarities between Trump and Roof, who last week killed nine people in a shooting at a church in Charleston, S.C.

    The since-deleted Instagram post received hundreds of likes from Ciurana’s 116,000 followers on the site. It also received backlash.

    “With all due respect, what happened last night is not a joke,” commented Patty Rodriguez, senior producer of radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “This is very irresponsible of you.”

    Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, called Ciurana’s post “totally insensitive” and said that Ciurana should resign.

    If you recall our reporting, Hillary Clinton also blamed the horrific Charleston murders on Donald Trump. “Public discourse is sometimes hotter and more negative than it should be, which can, in my opinion, trigger someone who is less than stable. I think we have to speak out against it. Like, for example, a recent entry into the Republican presidential campaign said some very inflammatory things about Mexicans. Everybody should stand up and say that’s not acceptable,” Hillary Clinton said in an interview with Arizona-based reporter John Ralston.

    There’s never any excuse to compare a mass murderer to a political opponent. Hillary and this scumbag from Univision are what’s wrong with politics. It’s despicable, period.

    And as for Univision, Donald Trump has a message for them: YOU’RE SUED!
