Latinos For Trump Founder Promises 'Taco Trucks On Every Corner' If We Don't Elect Donald

Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez tells Joy Ann Reid to expect taco trucks on every corner if Trump isn't elected

Latinos for Trump founder warns that the United States will face a truly awful, albeit tasty, scourge if Donald Trump isn't elected in November. What is this dangerous, scary, truly awful phenomenon he threatened?

Taco trucks.

Yes, food trucks serving delicious tacos. The horror!! Joy Ann Reid had a great moment after the (delicious) warning was said.

Gutierrez: “My culture is a dominant culture, and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks [on] every corner.”

Reid: “Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. I’m sorry. Hold on a second. I don’t know what that means and I’m almost afraid to ask.”

Another guest, New York state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, said “I’m offended."

Gutierrez, trying to do damage control, said: "I’ll tell you what that means — the Spanish never conquered Mexico. We have a culture that, we have a lot of good things that we bring to the United States. But we also have problems. You guys are going nuts over something, that there’s a 10th step to this problem. We haven’t even started down this path.”

Espaillat: “I don’t know what culture Mr. Gutierrez is talking about. But I know that the Hispanic culture has a saying — a very prominent saying: Mi casa, tu casa. ‘My house, your house.’ It is a tolerant culture. It is one that welcomes neighbors in. It is one that shares their culture, their music, their folklore. It is not an aggressive or bullying culture, as was displayed by Donald Trump and his 10-points that he laid out.”

So what is the real threat here? Taco trucks? Is that what he is saying? Personally, I find this a delicious threat.
