Trump Deports Univision Reporter Jorge Ramos From Press Conference (VIDEO)

The above photo shows emmy winning journalist Jorge Ramos arguing with what appears to be a human-orangutan hybrid in an ill fitting suit.
Today at a presser in Dubuqe, Iowa Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had the anchor of the nation's leading Spanish-language network physically removed for questioning the billionaire on how he would keep his promise of deporting over 11 million Mexicans from the US.

Jorge Ramos, an anchor for Univision and an Emmy-winning journalist, stood up and began to pepper Trump with questions about his aforementioned immigration proposal, which also includes ending the constitutionally mandated "birthright citizenship" for infants born in the United States to parents in the country illegally.

As Ramos began to speak, Trump immediately interrupted him, telling the reporter

Excuse me, sit down. You weren’t called, Sit down. Sit down.” and then finally barking, "Go back to Univision.

Trump then nonchalantly motioned to his body man to remove the journalist.

As Trump's security detail manhandled Ramos from the room, the anchor continued to speak, saying

"You cannot deport 11 million people....You cannot build a 1,900-mile wall,"

Moments later, Trump justified Ramos' removal saying: 

"He just stands up and starts screaming. He's obviously a very emotional person."

Here is the video of the exchange 

After around 15 minutes of Trump realizing just how horrible the optics of what he had just done were decided that he had better allow Ramos back into the news conference. Trump greeted him and then quickly resumed their argument. Ramos began...

"Your immigration plan, it is full of empty promises. You cannot deny citizenship to children born in this country."

Trump replied.

"Why do you say that? Some of the great legal scholars agree that's not true."

Mr. Ramos then said that building a border wall would be futile because 40 percent of undocumented immigrants arrive by plane (A 2006 report by the Pew Hispanic Center found that as much as 45 percent of the people in the U.S. illegally entered with legal visas but overstayed them).

Mr. Trump said.“

I don’t believe it,

Mr. Ramos asked.

"How are you going to deport 11 million?

Trump said glibly...

Very humanely,

In what I imagine Trump believed was a coup de grace he reminded Ramos that he was suing Univision, which dropped Trump's Miss Universe pageant after he described Mexican immigrants in the U.S. illegally as "criminals" and "rapists" and then finnished the exchange by adding...

"Do you know how many Latinos work for me? Do you know how many Hispanics work for me? Thousands. They love me."

The Donald might want to check the latest polling from Gallup, which found Latinos were more likely to say they disliked than liked him by a 51-point margin!!!

I am going to go out on a limb and hazard an educated guess that this incident where Trump's confronts a Latino man and belittles, berates and finally physically removes him will only drive Trumps polling numbers higher with the Republican base. Call me crazy.
