One of the few nice things about Donald Trump officially running for president is that it means he’s not just a big dummy with bad opinions anymore. Nope, now he’s a big dumb presidential candidate with bad opinions, and when you’re a big dumb presidential candidate with bad opinions, there are consequences.

Case in point: Trump made some pretty harsh anti-immigrant comments in a recent speech, saying Mexico is sending America “criminals” and “rapists” and “people that have lots of problems,” and now those comments are hitting him in his wallet, as Univision has responded by refusing to air Trump’s upcoming Miss Universe pageant or any of his other television projects. The network said in a statement:

“At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country. We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12 or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.”

Maybe this whole “Trump for President” thing won’t be so bad, after all.
