So you may have heard that Donald Trump made a quick visit to Mexico where he gave a relatively tame and subdued press conference, said there was no discussion about who would pay for the wall (which is true, unless you count the moment when Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said Mexico would not pay for the wall), called Mexicans “tremendous people,” and described the Mexican president as his friend. He then flew to Arizona where he insisted Mexico would pay for the wall and proceded to give his most aggressive immigration speech yet. Politico on Trump’s immigration rope-a-dope. Those in the media who like to create false equivalencies really have their work cut out for them.

+ It sort of makes sense that this meeting ended with a twitter war. For those who are not bilingual, I tried to sum up the discussion here.

+ Meanwhile, the Arizona Supreme Court cleared the way for legalized marijuana to be on the state’s ballot. After last night’s performance, they’ll need it.

+ If the goal was to appear with a foreign leader and absolutely dominate media coverage for an entire day, Trump succeed in a big way. And although the trip seemed to be a spur of the moment thing, it was “the result of a couple of weeks of closely guarded work.”
