Welcome back to another edition of Rupert Murdoch Should Maybe Not Tweet. In today’s installment, Murdoch tweeted support of Donald Trump’s bigotry, then tried to backtrack a bit.

To answer Murdoch: Yes, Trump did go too far. And if we’re vetting Muslims, we can’t wait to start examining white, male Christians, because they’re a lot more dangerous.
Of course Murdoch faced a wave of criticism for supporting the racist, sexist Trump and his idiotic, bigoted ideas, so he attempted to back off.
NOT endorsing Trump, but support Congressional vote for immediate pause to overhaul vetting process.
