In a shocking turn of events, a Trump surrogate declared on Thursday that all Americans should consider voting for Hillary Clinton.
Okay, that’s not entirely true, but almost.
Trump surrogate and founder of Latinos for Trump Marco Gutierrez was on MSNBC discussing immigration problems when he quite possibly made the most racist comment heard from Team Trump…this week, anyway.
Gutierrez told Joy Reid:
“My culture is a very dominant culture. It is imposing and it is causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
Whoa. What? Does he mean to tell us that there is actually a possibility we could have such incredible access to this delicious food wherever we go? Has this man ever had a taco from a taco truck? Does he realize this is literally one of the most delicious ideas ever? I have yet to hear a more compelling reason to vote for Hillary than this.
Watch the clip below:
I don’t even want to get into the psychology of a Latino helpfully bringing a message to white America that Latino culture is dirty and will overrun this pristine society you’ve built. It’s kind of a bizarre combination of self-loathing and megalomania. Our culture is all-powerful and also really crappy. What?
The Trump team has reportedly been trying to avoid embarrassing headlines (such as this) and manage their surrogates a little better by booking appearances through the campaign instead of having them book their own appearances. Advice to the campaign: try harder.
