-- Hispanic Democrats are seizing on Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s description of Donald Trump’s immigration comments as “that Mexican thing” in Tuesday’s vice-presidential debate to bash the Republican ticket.
“When Donald Trump says women should be punished or Mexicans are rapists and criminals … he is showing you who he is,” Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia, said in the debate.
“Senator, you’ve whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence quickly replied.
