Jill Biden Has Her Press Secretary Apologize for Her Over Comparing Latinos to Tacos

First Lady Jill Biden really goofed when she decided to compare Latinos to tacos. As RedState previously reported, Biden messed up not once, but twice in the same sentence, first by saying the Latin community is “as distinct as the bogidas (sic) of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio.”

Well, now she says she’s sorry for that comment…or at least that’s what her press secretary says she says.

Micahel LaRosa sent out a tweet on Tuesday morning saying that Biden apologizes if “her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community.”

A few odd things. For one, it lacks the “x” the left loves to attach to the Latino community in order to make the term more “inclusive.” It’s a term the majority of the Latino community expressly rejects, so I can’t help but wonder if the lack of the “x” this time is the left’s way of doing a small bit of damage control.

Secondly, why didn’t the First Lady say this herself?

I feel like this was a message she could have delivered herself to a nearby reporter, yet she relegates this apology to a throwaway tweet by one of her underlings? That doesn’t actually convey regret, it conveys annoyance or cowardice. Either way, it’s not much of an apology.

This is a perfect opportunity to play the “what if it was a Republican” game. If someone outside of the Democrat Party had said something like this then you can damn well bet this would have been a blatant sign of racism according to the left. If a Republican had compared the Latino community to tacos you can bet they’d be blasting the term “racism and xenophobia” out of every working speaker.

Was Jill Biden’s comment racism? No. It was just a clumsily delivered line that proves she’s out of touch with the peasantry. The real insult comes from not having delivered the apology herself, something that has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with the proof that she doesn’t actually care that much about respecting the people she claims to have so much love for.
