Trump attacks judge in Trump U as "Mexican", Republican party's image among Hispanics suffers

Rosalind Helderman, political enterprise and investigations reporter for the Washington Post, talks with Rachel Maddow about the latest revelations in the Trump University lawsuit and Donald Trump's attacks on the judge in that case.

Then Steve Benen describes how Republican outreach to Latino voters takes a big step backwards.

... the RNC hired one Director of Hispanic Media who quit because she can’t defend the Republican presidential nominee, and she was replaced by a new Director of Hispanic Media who’s spent months condemning the Republican presidential nominee.

A Washington Post analysis added this morning, “Donald Trump is doing to the national GOP brand in 2016 what Proposition 187 did to California Republicans in 1994. He continues to inflict lasting, perhaps irreparable, damage to the party’s image among Hispanics. It is not hyperbole to say that Trumpism could relegate the party of Abraham Lincoln to long-term minority status.”
