Donald Trump was slated to speak in West Virginia about tax reform, but he threw that plan out the window.

Literally. He took the piece of paper that had his notes on it ("I hear you"?) and threw it because it's boring. He tells it like it is!

No longer limited by the tyranny of having to stay on topic, Trump decided to play the hits—namely, calling immigrants rapists.

Yes, the President of the United States seemed to reiterate his famous claim that Mexicans are rapists, and was particularly proud of himself for using the R-word.

It is not clear who the "they" in this statement are. Trump does, however, appear to be referring to the caravan of asylum seekers and migrants heading to the US border from Honduras.

Adolfo Flores, a reporter traveling with the caravan, says that there is no evidence to support Trump's claim of mass rape.

Could it be that the president is making an incendiary claim about people seeking humanitarian relief to stoke up fear or to justify his announcement that he's deploying the National Guard to the border?

Is it ironic that he's accusing people of rape when he, himself, has been accused of rape and bragged about serial assault?

Van Jones's face says it all.

Once again, congratulations on a great tax reform event!
