I think it's more than just a gaff. He made some remarks that insulted a large group of people, and then chose to double down on those remarks every time they came up. When NBC and Univision cuts ties with him he accused them of supporting illegal immigration or some such nonsense. He also threatened to sue them. If this is how he acts in the first days of his campaign he has no business getting into politics.
If he had have taken back what he had said he'd have been wrong too. It was kind of no win when he opened his mouth.
He could have clarified without taking back. They are a lot better ways to word his comments.
It was a pretty bad wording on an explosive topic.
I agree. I think this will follow him for a very long time.
