Here’s what people said about Donald Trump on the Sunday chat shows yesterday. Keep in mind that these quotes are all from Trump’s supporters:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Trump’s repeated statement that Judge Gonzalo Curiel was biased against him because of his Mexican heritage: “I don’t believe that Donald Trump meant it in the manner that he said it.”

Newt Gingrich on Trump’s constant backtracking: “I think he stands for an evolving process of trying to come to grips with really big problems.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell on whether Trump is qualified to be president: “I’ll leave that to the American people to decide.”

And as long as we’re on the subject of Trump, be sure to check out Michael Finnegan’s piece in the LA Times about Trump’s failed condo development in Baja California: “Most of the Trump Baja condo buyers accused Trump and two of his adult children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., of duping them into believing that Trump was one of the developers, giving them confidence that it was safe to buy unbuilt property in Mexico.” It’s yet more of the usual Trump sleaze.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
