The Donald says he doesn't know Lizette Salas. Here's what he's missing

Any time you paint with the broad brush of stereotype the resulting picture is sloppy, at best. Accuracy is achieved only with the sharp tip pen capable of subtlety and nuance. Nothing is as simple as it seems, and therein lies the flaw in Donald Trump's sweeping statements about immigration, especially pertaining to Mexicans.

Six ridiculous comments from Donald Trump at the Women's British Open  The Donald showed up at the Ricoh Women's British Open in the middle of Thursday's first round and met with the media. One of the interesting things he said was that he has never heard of Lizette Salas. He should. It might make his statements on immigration more informed. One of best memories I have in this job is standing behind the 18th green at Colorado GC during Sunday singles at the 2013 Solheim Cup with Ramon and Martha Salas, Lizette's parents. They were watching their daughter finish off a halved match against Suzann Pettersen when tears started to stream down Martha's face.
