Ends up concluding in the WSJ that the guy has a conflict of interest because he's "Mexican" and so he can't rule on Trump University because Trump wants to build a wall. Let's see how many neat racial dividing lines Trump can draw over the next couple months, should be fun.
I haven't seen all of Trump's comments so I'm not sure whether the "He's a mexican" bit has been cherry picked or taken out of context, but others have pointed out that the judge is or has been a member of the "La Raza Bar Association" (or something like that), which unsurprisingly takes political positions adverse to Trump's on immigration.
That being said, even letting himself be taken out of context (assuming that's the case) shit-talking the judge is stupid. Really stupid.
