On Saturday, the Trump camp continued its streak of saying thinly-veiled racist things.
This time around, it was CNN talking head Scottie Nell Hughes, who told Wolf Blitzer that she didn’t like the fact that Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s VP pick, spoke in Spanish at a rally in Miami.
“I didn’t have to get a translator for anything that was going on at the [Republican National Convention] this week,” she told Wolf Blitzer.
O RLY?!? Then what language is Republican senator Ralph Alvarado speaking?
“I’m hoping I’m not going to have to start brushing up on my ‘Dora the Explorer’ to understand some of the speeches given this week,” she added, as if her initial blatant lie of a statement wasn’t racist enough.

Damn, what did Dora la Exploradora ever to do you?
Joke is on the haters, though. Here’s a truth bomb: The U.S. is becoming increasingly Latino, which means Spanish isn’t going anywhere.
Trump or any of his surrogates can’t change the fact that the Latino population is growing, and it’s not just in Texas or California. There are now more Latinos in places like Atlanta, Wisconsin and North Carolina than ever before. And guess what? The United States now has more Spanish speakers than Spain itself. You can’t stop us, fam, so you best get used to it.
