“If Trump Loses There Will Be A Taco Truck On Every Corner”

96

 

 

My culture is a very dominant culture, and it’s imposing — and it’s causing problems,” Marco Gutierrez founder of Latinos for Trump told Joy Ann Reid on MSNBC’s “All In” “If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”

How is this a bad thing? 

Where I live in Houston there is literally #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner…and I thank God for them everyday.” Tweeted @HahnAmerica

MSNBC claims it’s a serious charge worthy of consideration. Cheap authentic Mexican food, each truck competing for service and price. Count me in. 

As usual, mainstream media took Gutierrez literally. 

“The first question we must answer is how many trucks we’re talking about. A corner is dependent on an intersection of street, a place where two roads meet or where one road turns. For the purposes of our thought experiment, we will assume that Gutierrez didn’t mean a truck literally on every corner — that would be ridiculous. Instead, let’s assume that he meant a truck at every intersection.”

And that’s hashtags are born. #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner

Yeah. It’s really a thing. 

Taco Trucks

I’m not sure where he was going with this. One thing is really clear; the American people love Mexican food and are clearly welcoming them capitalizing on it.

Here’s where it gets funny.

“Of course, there would be other repercussions. Many of the taco trucks would struggle to find business… Other restaurants would likely suffer as a glut of other options and price wars undercut their offerings. There would be plenty of jobs for those fired from higher-end restaurants, but the resulting drop in wages would be staggering.”
