Donald Trump has added an entire new group of people who cannot serve as Judges in an impartial fashion purely based on race or religion - Muslims! On CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Trump continued with his baseless and patently racist attacks on Judge Curiel, stating that he is "unfair" and needs to recuse himself purely because he is of Mexican heritage (he is American, though).

He was asked whether he felt a Muslim judge would also treat him unfairly, and he said “It’s possible. It’s possible, yes. That would be possible, absolutely.”

So, now we have two entire groups that can't serve as impartial judges because somehow they are so weak minded that they fact that Trump has ran on a largely racist platform would somehow make them rule against him. No Mexicans, no Muslims.

Next up - pick a group! Any group. Women? African Americans? Jews? Disabled? Democrats?

Just as a reminder, although some GOP leaders have publicly denounced his statements, none have said they are withdrawing their support.

Can you help us out?
