Campaign 2016

Steve Lopez channels Trump on California


LA Times columnist Steve Lopez finds the perfect way to skewer Donald Trump in his weekend column. By sounding just like the candidate. Sample:

We have a very beautiful state here.

Absolutely beautiful.

And people are always saying to me, whether they live in California or they're visiting from somewhere else in the country or the world, hey, this is fantastic. That's what they say about California. They've never seen anything like it.

Did I mention that it's huge?


We have top-notch people here, too, with terrific ability, some of them. Very intelligent. They're making rockets; that's how smart they are.

And the women — many of the women — are beautiful, the most beautiful women in the world. Best of all, they don't go around playing the woman card like somebody we know.

Read the whole thing, as they say.
