The Internet Is Demolishing the Latest Ridiculous Statement from a Trump Supporter

#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner is the perfect way to start your Labor Day weekend.


It’s been a crazy day for tacos after Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez went on MSNBC’s “All in With Chris Hayes” Thursday to say that a White House without Donald Trump would mean, of all things, more taco trucks.

The discussion came a day after Trump’s meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and a much-awaited speech on immigration. During his speech in Arizona, he had strong words for undocumented immigrants, specifically those he described as criminals. “Their days have run out in this country. The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over. They’re going out. They’re going out fast,” he said.

Gutierrez, who is a Mexican immigrant, defended Trump’s stance on immigration, and said restrictions need to be tighter because Mexican culture is causing problems.

“My culture is a very dominant culture and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems,” he said. “If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.”

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today.
