It Took Jorge Ramos 10 Minutes To Prove Marco Rubio Doesn’t Understand Young Latinos

Marco Rubio was brave enough to sit down with Jorge Ramos for an interview on the issues young voters care about most. Not only did Rubio prove he is completely out of touch with young Latinos, the child of immigrants also doubled down on his itch to get rid of DACA and DAPA. Maybe this is why NO major Latino organization has endorsed him?

Right out the gate, Jorge Ramos let Marco Rubio know it was a no bullsh*t interview.

You can just see the regret creeping in on Rubio’s face.

First up: climate change.  Rubio is an adamant climate change denier.

Is Rubio aware the environment is one of the most important issues to Latinos in this presidential election? Latinos care more about the environment than anyone’s financial gain, even their own. Maybe that’s because the darker your skin, the worst the environmentally devastated your community is. As a Latino candidate who is supposed to bring in the Latino vote, homeboy should care more about OUR issues.

And how did Rubio respond to Ramos pointing out that just the result of just about every climate change study contradicts the candidate’s own views? By doubting the scientists asking for more environmental regulation…

“But I can tell you, with certainty, the impact they would have on our economy: it would be devastating,” Rubio told Ramos. “It would put millions of people out of work.”

Rubio’s responded with fear mongering that’s based on nothing.

Because, if you can’t convince them with facts and knowledge, you can always scare them into believing you.

Then Ramos came through and asked the child of Cuban immigrants how he would handle DACA and DAPA.

If looks could kill Rubio, would be the last man standing. Amiright? ?

Deep down inside, Rubio probably wanted to answer like:

After all, he is repeatedly said that he would end DACA as soon as he gets into the Oval Office.

But he was on camera talking to a Latino reporter so he tailored his answer accordingly.

Rubio did mention that he had no problem getting rid of DAPA because, according to him, it is only adding fuel to the fire of illegal immigration and is hindering the process of passing true reform. He did not back up his statement with factual evidence.

He then claimed that NO ONE is threatening mass deportation.

Wait…does he really think no one is saying they would deport all 12 million undocumented immigrants? What about Donald Trump? Or even fellow Cuban-American Ted Cruz?

An Alleged Rapist Is Running For Governor In Mexico And Still Has The Support Of President AMLO

An Alleged Rapist Is Running For Governor In Mexico And Still Has The Support Of President AMLO

For years, Mexicans have been taking to the streets to denounce violence against women and to demand accountability from their leaders. However, much of that messaging doesn’t seem to have reached the very top as President Andres Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) continues to support a candidate for governor facing multiple allegations of sexual assault.

A candidate for governor faces multiple sexual assault allegations and still enjoys widespread support.

Félix Salgado Macedonio, a federal senator (currently on leave) is accused of sexually assaulting five women and yet is still in the running for governor of Guerrero.

Despite the accusations he faces, 64-year-old Salgado, has maintained the support of President AMLO, who has claimed that the allegations are politically motivated, and other high-ranking party officials including national party president Mario Delgado. He was considered the frontrunner in the election for governor.

AMLO came to the candidates defense, calling on people to stop politicking and avoid “media lynchings” and asserting that people should trust the party process that was used to select Salgado as candidate.

“We have to have confidence in the people, it’s the people who decide. If polls are taken and and the people say ‘I agree with this colleague [being candidate],’ I think that must be respected. Politics is a matter for everyone, not just the elites,” López Obrador said.

The MORENA party has committed to reselecting its candidate for governor but Salgado is still in the running.

Officials from the MORENA party announced that they would conduct a new selection process to find a contender for the June 6 election. The party’s honesty and justice commission said its members had voted unanimously to order a repeat of the selection process.

While the honesty and justice commission has ordered a new candidate selection process, Salgado was not precluded from participating in it. He indicated in a social media post on Friday night that he planned to seek the party’s backing for a second time.

“Cheer up colleagues! There is [still fight in the] bull,” Salgado wrote on Facebook.

Activists continue to fight back against his candidacy and the president’s support for an alleged rapist.

Women have protested in Mexico City and Guerrero state capital Chilpancingo and the hashtag #NingúnVioladorSeráGobernador (No Rapist Will be Governor) has been used countless times on Twitter.

Yolitzin Jaimes, a member of the feminist collective Las Revueltas, said the withdrawal of Salgado’s candidacy is a positive first step but urged the authorities to continue investigating the rape allegations.

“… He has to go to jail, … he mustn’t return to the Senate and he mustn’t be nominated [for governor] by any political party because … it’s very probable that he’s seeking to go to the Labor Party [a Morena ally],” she said.

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

Sen. Ted Cruz has reached peak infamy with a piñata in his honor. People have been turned into piñatas over the years for both good and bad reasons. The Cruz piñata serves as a reminder of the senator’s attempt to flee the brutal Texas winter crisis.

A Texas party store is selling piñatas of Sen. Ted Cruz and people are into it.

Piñatas are always the centerpiece of a fun party and they are even more exciting when they are topical. One party shop in Texas is riding on the wave of local and national news criticizing Sen. Cruz to cash in.

Last week Sen. Cruz was caught boarding a United flight to Cancún, Mexico to escape the winter storm devastating Texas. As millions of Texans survived without water and power, the Cruz family booked a Mexican getaway to warmer weather and reliable electricity.

At first, Sen. Cruz tried to blame his daughters for fleeing Texas as his constituents suffered from the weather. He soon changed his story and claimed that he realized he had made a mistake as soon as he sat down on the plane waiting to depart from Houston.

Finally, after days of speculation, someone came forward and leaked text messages from Sen. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Turns out, according to the texts, that the Cruz family was actively planning a vacation to avoid the snowstorm. According to the texts, the Cruz family was trying to convince neighbors and friends to join them so they can get out of their freezing house. The criticism amplified when it was reported that the Cruz family left the family dog behind as they fled to Mexico.

People are eager to get their hands on a Sen. Cruz piñata.

Families have been in quarantine for almost a year and they are hitting a wall. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it is no surprise that people would want to have something to do together outdoors. Seems that a lot of people would like a piñata party to celebrate the bad weather slowly moving out.

There are even some people asking for different people made as piñatas.

You never know unless you ask, right? Never hurts to try to make your own request to better your birthday. It seems that the party store is able to make various different piñatas. The party store made a piñata after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ famous mitten moment at President Biden’s inauguration.
