Donald Trump Cancels Interview With A Reporter Because He Answered His Phone In Spanish

Donald Trump continues his efforts to alienate Latino voters. This time, the presumptive Republican nominee allegedly cancelled an interview with a reporter after finding out he spoke Spanish. But was that the real reason for the cancellation, or was there something else?

Marcos Stupenengo, an Argentine reporter working for Mexico’s TV Azteca, had secured an interview with Donald Trump. While Stupenengo waited in the lobby of Trump Tower for his interview with the GOP frontrunner, he received a phone call, which he answered in Spanish. And that’s all it took for the Trump camp to call the interview off, according to Buzzfeed.

Fighting with Spanish-speaking journalists is nothing new to Donald Trump.

Back in August, Donald Trump ejected Univision’s Jorge Ramos out of a press event in Dubuque, Iowa. “Go back to Univision,” Trump contemptuously told Ramos. Many in the Latino community interpreted that as the candidate telling the Mexican-born anchor to go back to Mexico.

Before that, he even feuded with Jose Diaz-Balart.

Even before he was beefing with Ramos, Trump had already stirred up sh*t with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart. In July 2015, Trump visited the Mexico/U.S. border in Laredo, Texas. During a Q&A, Diaz-Balart asked Trump whether he thought his own comments about Mexican immigrants being rapists offended the Latino community. Instead of answering, Trump decided to lose it.

So did he really cancel his interview with Marcos Stupenengo because he spoke Spanish?

It’s possible. The Trump campaign has yet to comment on the story, but his previous interactions with reporters with Spanish last names seems to suggest that he doesn’t want to talk to any Spanish-speaking media.

Really tho? This guy?

Like, look at this guy. How unpleasant could this interview have been?

But wait! Maybe it’s all a catspiracy.

Hear us out! We have our own theory. Maybe Trump didn’t cancel his interview with Stupenengo because the reporter spoke Spanish. Need proof? During our investigation (or, you know, while creeping on that dude’s Twitter timeline) we found this tweet where Stupenengo clearly makes fun of Donald Trump’s toupee hair. The Donald has a reputation for having thin skin. What if this whole thing is over that tweet?

Yes, our theory sounds stupid AF, but then again, it’s no worse than pretending to be your publicist to brag about yourself, right?
