It would appear the only thing faster than Donald Trump's rise to the Republican presidential nomination is his furious back-pedalling. 

Not long ago the floppy-haired conduit for nonsense was talking of building a wall on the US border to keep out Mexicans.

Oh, and he also said a lot of them were "criminals and rapists".

He now appears to have greatly changed his xenophobic tune and has today professed his love for all things Hispanic. 

And there's one other disturbing thing about the picture.

Not only is the whole "Hispanics" thing a touch hypocritical, it’s also a plug for his own restaurant.

Thing is, it's the wrong restaurant. Taco bowls are served in the Trump Tower Cafe, not the Grill.

Trump

 Hillary Clinton summed up the whole thing pretty well.

 As did Mehdi Hasan.

And many others.

Trump's road to the nomination has been far from smooth - especially for Ted Cruz's wife.

He dropped out of the Republican primary race last night, effectively handing Donald Trump the nomination and his wife a big dose of elbow.
