13 Things Latinos Do That Are Dangerous, Life-Threatening, But SO Much #SaferThanATrumpRally

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Donal Trump rallies are becoming insanely violent. While Trump sits back on his throne and just watches all this happen, Twitter brought attention to the issue with #SaferThanATrumpRally. Twitter did alright, but we’ve come up with a few more…

Some people started with the obvious.

With the way things are going, there are bound to be more people injured at a Trump rally than the next running of the bulls in Pamplona.

There are some Twitter hasn’t discussed yet…like having a chupacabra as a pet.

Sure. It very well might rip your throat open in your sleep, but that’s the risk you take. #AnyoneButTrump

Or getting a beatdown from mami’s chancla.

This thing has heat seeking capability and boomerang characteristics, but it is still not going to kill you for being you.

Cheap tequila, while dangerous, is still #SaferThanTrump.

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, FLOOR!

Trump can only wish that his rallies were as hot as ghost chile peppers.

But then they would be safe and he, apparently, just doesn’t dig that.

Even talking back to your parents wouldn’t f*ck you up like a Trump rally.

Bruises and feelings heal. Broken bones and death threats take a little more time to deal with.

Flipping tortilla in your comal a la abuelita? Yup safer.

Ignoring calls from mami is just about the riskiest thing ANY Latino can do.

But it is still so much safer than trying to reason with fanatical Trump supporters.

Can’t say the same for Trump supporters.

Ever tried to distract abuelita while she watched Walter Mercado?

You won’t be the same but you’ll be in better shape than if you went to a Trump rally.

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Google/NBC

It’s official: the United States has a new president! Yesterday was Inauguration Day in the U.S. and we welcomed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President.

It was an historic day full of major milestones for the country and the world – and that was made obvious by the sheer amount of attention paid to the day’s events. One has to look no further than the amount of memes that were produced in the wake of the inauguration, from Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to Bernie Sanders and the adiós to Donald and Melania Trump.

As usual, Latino Twitter showed up with the memes and left many of us on the floor laughing our a** off. These are some of the honorable mentions from a day full of historical moments and incredible memes.

Tío Bernie may have stolen the spotlight from President Biden with his very practical inauguration attire.

The long-serving Vermont senator was there to watch proceedings, bracing the D.C. cold to witness Biden being sworn in as president. To withstand the cold climes, Sanders came prepared in a big old reliable coat and mittens – with his inaugural look and general demeanour waiting for the event to begin capturing the creativity of the internet through a series of ‘Cold Bernie’ memes.

Bernie was everywhere!

The former presidential candidate was popping up in all sorts of places as the Internet memed him into a frenzy.

And he was all of us…

The former aspiring presidential candidate later addressed the attention his outfit was getting in an interview with Gayle King, noting: ‘You know in Vermont we know something about the cold and are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm and that’s what I did today.’

The Internet has even created a website where you can insert Tío Bernie into any scene you want with Google Maps.

And yes, it actually works!

Michelle Obama told us all how she felt without telling us all how she felt.

When Michelle and Barack Obama departed the White House in 2017 to make way for Donald and Melania Trump to take over the reigns, Michelle did not hide how difficult and upsetting she found the moment. So a lot of people were thrilled to see the Michelle we know and love, happy, thrilled and generally paving the way at the 2021 inauguration ceremony.

Lady Gaga giving the world Hunger Games vibes…

Lady Gaga had the honour of performing the American national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and, of course, she ‘killed’ it. The dramatic and rousing performance was made even better by her custom-made Schiaparelli gown, adorned in the US colours and complete with patriotic hidden meanings. However some thought they’d seen it – particularly the brooch – before…

Then there were the adiós Trump memes that left Mexican Twitter on fire!

A la verga! Adiós, Señor Trump! 👋

This one is too good!

I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

Mexican Facebook was also on fire!

This Twitter user is too right, Mexican Facebook really is undefeated!

And some want to reclaim red hats!

If you could bring back red hats, what would yours say?

Cardi B and Olivia Rodrigo Had an Adorable Exchange on Twitter and Now Fans Are Calling For a Collab

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
