(Michael Walsh/New York Post) – To hear the media tell it, Donald Trump was finished last week.
For calling a first-generation judge of Mexican heritage a “Mexican,” he had injected racism into the campaign. For firing his strong-arm campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, he admitted his insurgency was adrift. For not raising as much cash as a woman who’s effectively been running for president since 1992, he was a hopeless, incompetent amateur. And, oh yes — he was down in the polls.
In sum, for not playing by the rules laid down by consultants and political journalists, Trump was derailed, wrecked, finished.
And then things changed.
