It seems like the whole world is severing ties with Donald Trump following his racist remarks about Mexican immigrants, but not Stacey Dash. The Fox News contributor is doubling down on her support for the real estate mogul — who is running for president — saying on television this morning that she still believes he's the best choice for Leader of the Free World.
We should point out that Dash is half-Mexican.
"I believe what [Trump] was trying to say was that we need to close the borders because it's dangerous. It's an imminent threat," she says. Somehow, what came out of Trump's mouth instead was that Mexican immigrants tend to be rapists and criminals. At the very least, Dash acknowledges that Trump fumbled his words. "I believe what he said, he could have said in a different way. He should have ended it there, he didn't have to get personal about Mexico, because he then says he has Mexican friends and he loves Mexico. It's like saying, 'I have my Black friend,' you know."
Still, the conservative host believes Trump is right in suing Univision for dropping his Miss USA pageant after the incendiary remarks and says that she'd still "want a guy like that running my country."
Well, that's one vote The Donald can count on.
