First Lady Jill Biden has apologized after her making racially charged remarks during a speech this week that compared the Hispanic community’s uniqueness to breakfast tacos.
Ironically Biden was speaking at a Unidos event in San Antonio, Texas, with the goal of bringing back Hispanic voters to the Democratic Party. Democrats have lost significant numbers of Hispanic voters in recent years—particularly in Texas. Instead of uniting the audience and currying favor, she ended up ticking them off.
Online, users posted comments like “I am not a breakfast taco,” to show their frustration over the first lady’s remarks. The Hispanic group NAHJ tweeted, “We are not tacos…. Do not reduce us to stereotypes.”
What began as an odd statement quickly grew into a trending topic that forced the First Lady to issue a formal apology over the gaffe.
The faux pas adds to the poor polling for her husband, within the Hispanic community. A New York Times poll showed the response to the question, “If the 2024 presidential election were held today, who would you vote for?
Biden ranked 42%, with Trump at 39%. These are the numbers the uber liberal NY Times is putting out so you know the real numbers indicate Biden is heavily underwater with a community that used to vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.
