Despite Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani's inspiring promise to make Mexico great again (...also), for some inexplicable reason tacos continue to be a major point of contention throughout the 2016 presidential election.
On Thursday night, during a segment on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, Marco Gutierrez, the co-founder of the organization Latinos for Trump, warned of an impending coup led by taco truck drivers.
“My culture is a very dominant culture,” he said. “And it’s imposing, and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.”
Wait, what? MSNBC’s Joy Reid immediately put the brakes on Gutierrez’ rant, attempting to unpack the guest’s logic.
“Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Hold up a second,” she said. “I don’t even know what that means, and I’m almost afraid to ask.”
On Twitter, viewers were equally confused.
This isn’t the first time Mexican cuisine has taken center stage in the Trump campaign. On Cinco de Mayo earlier this year, the Donald posted a photo to social media while he enjoyed a taco bowl, professing his love for “Hispanics” in the process.
