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:

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

By now, we’re pretty certain the Trumps have had their fill of scandalous tell-all books. After all, each one seems to published by former members of their inner circle who no longer want to be the keepers of their dirty laundry. In the weeks leading up to the upcoming election, the Trumps have seen some of their worst secrets and darkest moments spilled by family members and ex- BFFs. Now, the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen is taking a jab at yanking out the skeleton’s in Donald Trump’s closet.

In his latest book Disloyal: A Memoir Cohen tallies of an insane list of “dirty deeds” which he claims he performed for Trump. And of course, while Cohen is a man whose credibility has been tainted various times, we couldn’t help but take a peek at the dirty Trump laundry he’s airing out in the book. Particularly because he started writing it while in prison after pleading guilty to criminal lies and financial crimes carried out on Trump’s behalf.

Check out the book’s biggest spills below!

Trump isn’t a big fan of his own son Donald Jr. 

In his book, Cohen writes about Trump’s frequent dismissals of his eldest child son Donald Jr. “Over time, I would come to learn that his father held him in extremely low esteem,” Cohen writes in his book recalling a moment in which Trump had been getting ready for a cameo at a WWE wrestling event when his son asked him if he was nervous.

“I’m going in front of millions of people. What kind of stupid fucking question is that? Get out of here,” Cohen recalled of the moment Trump made his son leave the room. “That kid has the worst fucking judgment of anyone I have ever met. What a stupid thing to say — to put that thought in my head.” 

Cohen thinks Trump is a pretty big racist.

“The Trumps were actually racist,” Cohen writes about Trump and his father Fred. “As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks,” Cohen recalled in the book. “What he said in private was far worse than what he uttered in public.” 

In his book, Cohen also claimed that Trump criticized countries led by Black leaders the moment Barack Obama became elected president.

“Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole,” Trump asked Cohen. “They are all complete fucking toilets.” 

“South Africa was once a beautiful country twenty, thirty years ago,” Cohen claimed Trump said. “Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole. Fuck Mandela. He was no leader.”

Trump is extremely jealous of Barack Obama.

Which we all knew but this bit below is particularly hilarious.

“Watching Obama’s Inauguration in 2008 with Trump, with the massive, adoring, joyful crowd on the Mall, incensed the Boss in a way I’d never seen before — he was literally losing his mind watching a handsome and self-evidently brilliant young black man take over,” Cohen wrote in the memoir. “When Obama won the Nobel Prize, Trump went ballistic.”

Trump’s hair myths are worse than you thought.

According to Cohen, Trump’s bizarre hairstyle is a result of a botched scalp surgery. Cohen alleges in his book that a hair-implant operation in the 1980s disfigured Trump’s scalp. Apparently, to hide his scars, he uses his hair (which when undone) hangs down below his shoulder on the right side. 

“The three-step procedure required a flop up of the hair from the back of his head, followed by the flip of the resulting overhang on the back of his pate, and then the flap of his combover on the right side, providing three layers of thinly disguised balding-male insecurity,” Cohen writes. 

Cohen says Trump really did get a golden shower

Cohen admits that he and the president attended a strip show in Las Vegas where an act “involved two strippers drinking champagne and pretending to snort coke as they undressed, while one of them simulated giving the other a golden shower as the other caught the fake urine and drank it.” 

Cohen claims in his book that he didn’t witness that part of the show personally but that it was performed that night after seeing it on the club’s Facebook page. 

He also says that he doesn’t know what happened at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013. There the notorious “dossier” alleged Trump hosted strippers who peed on each other in his hotel room as part of a performance. Of course, Trump denies this ever happened.
