Trump Supporter Warns Americans Of ‘Taco Trucks On Every Corner’

‘You’re going to have taco trucks on every corner’

The Trump campaign’s anti-immigrant fear mongering has reached a new low. Yesterday, on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Marco Gutierrez, founder of the group Latinos for Trump, issued a dire warning to the American people: “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 Reid, the show’s host, was confused by the comment, “I don’t even know what that means and I’m almost afraid to ask,” she said.


Gutierrez’s comments were an attempt to scare Americans over a hypothetical Latino invasion that would happen if Hillary Clinton is elected president. But, for many, the idea of a future where there’s easy access to tasty, affordable Mexican food feels like paradise. If Trump is looking to increase his dwindling poll numbers, courting the anti-taco vote is a losing strategy. In fact, last year Americans ate 4.5 billion tacos and salsa is now a more popular condiment than ketchup.

Gutierrez’s comments come at a tough time for the Trump campaign. Earlier this week, several members of his Hispanic advisory council quit his campaign after he doubled down on his hard-line immigration stance. “There was so much hope,” said Jacob Monty, a former member Trumps Hispanic advisory council said. “He used us as props.”

Here are more of Twitter’s hilarious reactions to the coming Taco-Pocalypse.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
