NOT THAT IT'S HARD TO BE MORE AMERICAN THAN THE DONALD:

Father of judge Trump keeps blasting for 'Mexican' ancestry has lived in U.S. longer than Trump's mother (Jeva Lange, 6/03/16, The Week)

[I]t turns out, the judge might be even more American than Trump is -- at least if you measure by the years their families have lived in the country.

U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel was born in Indiana, the son of a Salvadorian immigrant who arrived in the U.S. in the 1920s and went on to become a citizen and a steelworker, Talking Points Memo reports. Trump's mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, arrived in the United States from Scotland in 1930 -- and didn't become a U.S. citizen until 1942.

Except that Trump and his ilk measure by race.
