Watch How these Republican Candidates Got Stumped by Beauty Guru Dulce Candy
Dulce Candy has a fan base that is 2 million strong and during last night’s debate, she proved she is more than just a beauty persona. Girl had the Republican candidates scrambling to answer the ONE question she asked: How the Republican party plans to help immigrants like herself. Check out how they all fumbled.
Dulce Candy, a beauty YouTuber, took direct aim at the GOP candidates about their immigration stances. And she did not hold back.
“I’m Dulce Candy, a YouTube creator who immigrated to the United States from Mexico when I was a little girl. Since then, I am proud to say I served in the armed forces in Iraq, became a citizen and I am now an entrepreneur. There are many immigrants who contribute positively to the American economy, but some of the comments in the campaign make us question our place in this country. If America does not seem like a welcoming place for immigrant entrepreneurs, will the American economy suffer?”
And her face lets you know that she means business.
She tied in being an Iraq war veteran and entrepreneur: two of the things Republicans have been championing this election cycle. Slay, girl, slay.
Ben Carson was the first candidate to respond and it started like this:
Megyn Kelly: Dr. Carson, that’s one — that one’s for you.
Carson: Oh, great. [Laughs Nervously]
He answered…by saying we should declare a war on the Islamic State and change our immigration policies…?
“If you’ve got 10 people coming to your house and you know one of them is a terrorist, you’re probably going to keep them all out,” Carson responded. Though, she asked how it would impact the economy if this rhetoric continued, but whatevs.
Then Jeb Bush piped up and praised Dulce Candy for her service and entrepreneurship goals. This was Carson:

And Bush kind of made sense for a second.
“And we should be a welcoming nation,” Bush said at the debate. “Our identity is not based on race or ethnicity, it’s based on a set of shared values. That’s American citizenship.”
Good, Jeb. Just keep going on that point.
But then he said how much he liked Dulce Candy’s name and called it “the YouTube” and his supporters felt like:
Sooo close, bro!
And, lastly, Marco Rubio gave it a shot and talked about reforming our out-dated immigration system to a more merit-based system.
Which shouldn’t surprise you since he is actively trying to change the same immigration law his parents used to move from Cuba to the US.
