Earlier this week Marco Gutierrez, the founder of Latinos for Trump, issued a solemn promise to all Americans. If Hillary Clinton is elected president, he warned, there will be “taco trucks on every corner.”
Gutierrez went on to add, in a conversation he recorded while driving to an interview with MSNBC's Joy-Ann Reid, "If you don't do something about it, us as Hispanics, we're going to have the White House full of taco trucks and we are going to be selling paletas on every corner around the White House. And, we are going to have piñatas and atole ... I know my people guys … You need to defend your country, our country."
Latinos for Trump has declared September, in which Hispanic Heritage Month falls, Taco Bowl Awareness Month.
You can't make this stuff up.
In response, I created this meme: “Jesus wants to eat street tacos with us on the corner. And talk about stuff.”
As we know, Jesus showed up at banquets and weddings and enjoyed eating with all sorts of people. My guess is that if he were to return tomorrow, and landed in America, he would make a beeline for a taco truck and want to chew the fat about what the Sam Hill is going on?
