No Vast Vatican Conspiracies for Trump

Rome's got nothing on Mexico City, apparently.


You know what leaped out at me in Donald Trump's weird screed about the pope today? These eight words:

"They are using the Pope as a pawn"

Back in the day, people like Trump thought the man in Rome was the grand chessmaster, not a mere pawn of a Mexican cabal. Along with all the other ways he's shaking up politics, Trump is now turning the old nativist conspiracy stories on their head.
