If he wants those tasty Trump Tendies, Halperin has to keep racking up those Trump Good Boy points, no matter how racist or nutso Trump gets.
Can he do it?
Of course he can!

Halperin: Trump Attack On ‘Mexican’ Judge ‘Not Racial,’ Mexico 'Not A Race'I must respectfully disagree with Karoli over at Crooks & Liars. This is not the "Dumbest Thing Mark Halperin Has Ever Said". Halperin is a soulless, calculating ambition machine who has a long and shameful history of telling ridiculous lies and wallowing with the worst scum in American politics. If Trump were setting fires in public buildings, Halperin would find a way to praise the economic value of arson. He is just that dead inside.
Bloomberg journalist Mark Halperin said Friday that Donald Trump’s attacks on the Mexican heritage of a federal judge overseeing a case against him were “not racial” because “Mexico isn’t a race.”
The co-host of his show “With All Due Respect,” John Heilemann, insisted that Trump’s frequent invocation of judge Gonzalo Curiel’s ethnicity is beyond the pale.
“He did it over and over again, he kept calling Curiel a Mexican, right?” Heilemann said, in an exchange flagged by Media Matters. “It is not even dog whistle politics. It is just pure racial politics.”
“No, it’s not racial,” Halperin responded.
“It’s racial politics. It is,” Heilemann insisted.
“Mexico isn’t a race,” Halperin said...
And for his sins, Bloomberg and MSNBC keeps promoting and rewarding him, which is why national political journalism is dead in this country.
