Donald Trump lets slip the truth: "I love the poorly educated," the GOP front-runner declared after winning Nevada on their backs

Purely coincidentally, after he mentioned "the poorly educated," he began discussing Hispanic voters

Donald Trump's victory speech last night was, for lack of a better way to phrase it, exactly the sort of thing you'd expect another Donald Trump victory speech to be -- part-empty braggadocio, part-vapid stump nonsense, and part-unwitting confession.

It's the last part that's the most interesting here, although statements like America "gets greedy right" do deserve a little lingering over.

"Now we’re going to get greedy for the United States we’re going to grab and grab and grab," Trump said. "We’re going to bring in so much money and so much everything. We’re going to make America great again, folks, I’m telling you folks we’re going to make America great again."

Later, he capped his speech by declaring that he "won with the poorly educated. I love the poorly educated! We're the smartest people, we're the most loyal people, and you know what I'm most happy about? I’ve been saying it for a long time. Forty-six percent were the Hispanics -- 46 percent, number one with Hispanics. I’m really happy about that."

The fact that speaking about "the poorly educated" prompted the notorious ad-libber to begin discussing Hispanic voters is surely a coincidence, as is the fact that he quickly segued from discussing Hispanic voters to all the "bad dudes" he will "load up" in Guantanamo Bay should he be elected.
