Just after changing his Twitter background to display the proud words "Presumptive Republican Nominee, Donald J. Trump," your favorite billionaire moved his tiny finger to hit upload on a great little photo of his orange little face. That photo contained his "Happy #CincoDeMayo" wishes for a community he's made some controversial comments about in the past.
#CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!
The media immediately jumped on the debatable claim—you know, the one about the "best taco bowl."
In fact, there is no taco bowl on the Trump Tower Grill menu, according to the prestigious outlet NBC News, which hopefully sent 35 ravenous reporters to fact-check. There is, however, a "Taco fiesta!" meal at the nearby Trump Tower Café.
Hillary Clinton jumped on the post as well, but focused on the only slightly more important implication of Trump's "love" for Hispanics.
“I love Hispanics!” —Trump, 52 minutes ago
“They’re gonna be deported.” —Trump, yesterday
Clinton's referring to a Wednesday interview Trump gave to Lester Holt, in which he said:
They're going to be deported. Look we either have a country or we don't. We have many illegals in the country and we have to get them out and go through a process, go through a system and ones who have done well and have really achieved we want to bring them back in.
But Donald is clearly trying to make amends with a community he's repeatedly found himself denigrating, and what better way than to repeat the very simple messaging he found so successful when boasting, "I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks."
Now he's trying "I love Hispanics" to see how that sticks.
If you find yourself offended, at least you can take solace in knowing that—if that taco bowl is even half as greasy as it looks—Trump will have furious diarrhea tonight.
