You Won’t Believe Who Won And Who Lost The Latino Vote In The Florida Primary

The recent primary vote in Florida has given the country even more insight on the ever elusive Latino vote. With two Latino candidates on the Republican side and two Democratic candidates trying to prove who is more down with the brown, everyone’s eyes were on Latinos in the Sunshine State. So what happened? Let’s break it down for you.

Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary by a HUGE margin, like, she totally annihilated Bernie Sanders.

Clinton beat Sanders 1,097,400 votes (64.4 percent) to  his 566,603 (33.3 percent) votes, according to CNN.

Hills was probably feeling a lot like this.

But, how did she do with the Latino vote?

You might be surprised.

72 percent of Latinos who voted Democrat picked the former Secretary of State, compared to the 28 percent that voted for Sanders.

It wasn’t just Latinos. Clinton won in EVERY demographic except white men.

That said, the white male vote in Florida was pretty evenly split.

On the other side, Donald Trump won the Florida Republican primary like it was nothing.

Marco Rubio couldn’t even win his home state.

Trump won every county in Florida except for Miami-Dade, which went to Marco Rubio.

The real question is, how did Trump do with Latinos?

Brace yourself.

The good news: he did NOT win the Florida Latino vote.

The only group that Rubio was able to win was Latinos, getting 52 percent of the total vote. #PraiseTheUniverse

The bad news: Trump came in second place with 26 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 15 percent.

Real talk: if Latinos prefer Trump over Cruz, is the Canadian-born son of a Cuban immigrant really the candidate to stop the GOP frontrunner?

Only time and a possibly contested convention will tell.

Seems like the general election will come down to Clinton and Trump leaving both parties feeling a little like this:

This Insane Video of an Anti-Mask ‘Karen’ Screaming and Resisting Arrest in a Florida Bagel Shop is Going Viral

This Insane Video of an Anti-Mask ‘Karen’ Screaming and Resisting Arrest in a Florida Bagel Shop is Going Viral

Just when you think yo’ve seen all the Karen videos out there, one comes out of left field and blows them all out of the water.

The video we’re talking about here is the video of Cindy Falco-DiCorrado, a 62-year-old “anti-mask activist” who exemplifies the very definition of white privilege.

Falco-DiCorrado was arrested last Thursday at an Einstein Bagels location in Boca Raton, Florida. Luckily for the internet, Falco-DiCorrado had a camerawoman in tow to record the entire debacle leading up to the arrest.

The video starts in the middle of things, with an officer taking an unmasked Falco-DiCorrado by the arm, asking her to please step outside. It is immediately evident that the woman (who, by the way, is dressed in head-to-toe leopard print) will not be compliant.

Falco-DiCorrado begins raising her voice and screaming at the officer, shouting things like “Get your hands off of me! You are kidnapping me!” and “You are violating the Constitution! That’s discrimination!”

At one point, the unseen camerawoman who is recording the meltdown pans around the bagel shop to get a look at all of the spectators.

It appears that every customer in the shop, as well as the workers behind the counter, have taken their phones out to record the bizarre incident.

The Florida woman continues to struggle with the cop and scream things like “Get your hands off of me! I’ve done nothing wrong, I am not a criminal,” while accusing the police officer (who is Black) of “stealing her purse”.

The struggle continues until a second cop arrives and immediately decides to not handle the unhinged woman with kid gloves. The second cop immediately grabs her by the arm and, with the help of the other cop, proceeds to drag her out of the shop.

But the video doesn’t end there. As Falco-DiCorrado is dragged out of the shop, she continues to scream.

The officers proceed to arrest her while she struggles against them and screams: “Stop it! You cannot arrest me! I’ve done nothing illegal!”

The entire time she is being arrested she is visibly and enthusiastically resisting arrest.

Watching the video, one can’t help but wonder how the officers would have treated her if her skin was a different color.

The video was posted to the popular Instagram page @CrazyKarens where it quickly went viral.

Commentators were stunned by the entire interaction, writing things like: “They let her get away with way too much! They would’ve thrown a person of color right on the ground the minute he/she didn’t stand up.”

Another person said: “With all that resistance she didn’t get pepper spray, no taser, no knee to the neck, no punches and they even called her ‘ma’am'”.

According to officials, Falco-DiCorrado is facing charges of trespassing and resisting arrest without violence. All because she didn’t want to wear a mask.

The public has been informed of a happy ending to a story that could have ended tragically. Authorities have revealed that the Florida teen who was abducted by gunpoint on Sunday morning has been found safely in Virginia.

According to police, 18-year-old Nicole Martinez was found unharmed with her kidnapper, 37-year-old Jaddier Sanchez.

Florida authorities revealed that Sanchez abducted Martinez and her parents by gunpoint from their home in Pembroke Pines shortly after midnight on Sunday. He forced Martinez and her parents into their Dodge Ram pickup truck and drove the family around, forcing them to withdraw cash at various ATM machines.

He drove the car to Palm Beach, at which point he told the parents to “get out”. He then drove off with Nicole still in the car, against her will. Martinez’s parents were found wandering at the side of the road by authorities around 5:30 am on Sunday.

The Virginia authorities were able to locate Sanchez around 1 a.m. Monday morning, driving on the Interstate 95 near Springfield in the stolen vehicle.

According to police reports, he was arrested “without incident”. A preliminary search of the car turned up crack cocaine as well as a loaded firearm.

Per the police, Martinez was not gravely harmed, but she was nonetheless taken to a Virginia hospital for minor injuries. Authorities are not giving any other update on her physical condition.

In Virgina, Sanchez faced a judge for three weapons charges, a drug charge and a traffic offense. In Florida, he faces a myriad of other legal troubles. Florida police have yet to formally charge Sanchez, but the Florida man is facing charges of armed robbery, three counts of kidnapping, and grand theft of a vehicle.

According to Martinez’s parents, the family was acquainted with the kidnapper through their daughter.

Police have since revealed that 37-year-old Sanchez was in a “romantic relationship” with the 18-year-old. No further details have been given.

Since his arrest, reports have come out the at Sanchez has spent most of his adult life in and out of prison.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, since he was 18-years-old, Sanchez has been charged with shoplifting, burglary, larceny, aggravated stalking, trespassing, aggravated battery, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and domestic violence with intent to kill.

Sanchez had been behind bars since 2006, but was released in late 2020. It didn’t take much time for him to get in trouble with the law again, however.
