The Twitterverse is all abuzz today! And it’s all about tacos! Taco trucks to be more precise!
While being interviewed by Joy-Ann Reid yesterday on MSNBC, Donald Trump supporter Marco Gutierrez said this:
“My culture is a very dominant culture and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
Joy-Ann, who was sitting in for host Chris Hayes, was not quite sure what she had just heard. But honestly, the remark stands on its own.
Mr. Gutierrez was born in Mexico and is the founder of Latinos for Trump. The interview pretty much stalled at that point; it’s pretty hard to go on from there. Ol’ Bulldog here is not going to make any additional attempt to comment on this memorable exchange except to note that Napoleon once said “never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake!” I’m all good.
One final note: I truly do love food trucks, taco trucks in particular. My absolute fave is Cameltow Tacos, a truck you’ll see at different events all around Central Florida. The photo featured here is from when I caught Cameltow at the 3rd annual Metro West Jazz Fest here in Orlando back on May 1st. It was my second time to have their yummy offerings and I can recommend them without reservation. I especially love their fish tacos.
