This Pro-Trump Latino Is Married To An Undocumented Mexican

Still think that there are no young Latinos lining up behind Donald Trump? Well, here’s a video of a Trump supporter and a Trump protester facing off outside the Colorado House of Representatives in Denver. One played the strong, silent type while the other tried to start a conversation over Trump and his policies. Here’s how it went down.

It started when a young Latino saw an older man carrying a sign that reads “Trump = Racist.”

The young unidentified Latino – the one wearing the “Hillary for Prison” shirt – told the older man, “Why is Trump racist, man? I am married to a Mexican who’s an illegal immigrant. We’re working on his papers, but we both agree that Trump is not a racist.” He added: “You see what’s going on in Paris, you know, with all these terrorist attacks? We can’t just let everybody in.”

But the man with his sign stayed quiet and continued to protest the GOP frontrunner.

When the older man wouldn’t engage, the younger dude decided to talk about what he thinks is wrong with anti-Trump voters.

“They always say, ‘Trump is a racist. Trump is a racist.’ But they won’t respond with the facts. That’s what always happens,” the younger man said to the camera. “These same old trendies do this and this guy’s older and he’s doing this. Usually, you expect the college kid to do this. That’s why y’all gotta spread the word. That’s why you got to let all y’all college friends know and start letting them know the facts because this, this right here, this is propaganda.”

Again, when they tried to engage with the older protester, he simply tapped his sign and continued on his way.

So, the younger man turned to the crowd of Trump supporters.

He called on them to raise their voices and start a social media campaign to get the facts out.

Here’s What Happens When A Gringo Marries Into A Latino Family

Columbia Pictures

At various moments in your childhood, certain things pop up that make you realize your family is a liiiiittle different from those of your non-Latino and non-immigrant friends. Which leads you to wonder if you could ever manage to have a non-latino S.O.

Until one day, it happens: You fall for a Jordan instead of a Joaquín, a Jessica instead of a Yessica.

First, you wonder how your boo will react to you family.

Does your abuela’s picadillo have the power to transcend ideology, language and culture? (Of course it does.)

But even more so, you wonder worry about how your family will react to your boo.

Is your S.O.’s appetite big enough to warm their hearts? Are they strong enough to withstand your mom’s judgment and abuela’s chisme?

So you make bae go through a rigorous training process…

There’ll be name flashcards for all 152 cousins, as well as appetite-enhancement practices. #NoGrainLeftBehind

…complete with cheek-kissing drills.

And remember: practice makes perfect.

You open them up to a new world of food possibilities.

The heart wants what the heart wants. And now your boo wants you… to bring them more tostones rellenos.

And your heart melts the first time they order food in Spanish.

There’s just something sexy about a man or woman who knows what they want: carne asada.

At first, bae seems offended when they’re called “El Gring@.”

Until you have this conversation:

“Why don’t you just call me White?”

“Because Hispanics can be White.”

“Why don’t you just call me American?

“Because Hispanics can be American.”

“Why not just call me by my name?”

“Because that’s not how we show LOVE.”

But eventually they use it more than you do when chismiando.

And you don’t have the heart to say “…Um, that’s you too, babe.”

Whether your boo speaks Spanish or not, there’s still translating involved.

“Nom babe, my mom’s not ‘bringing a stick inside,’ she’s going to whoop someone’s a**.”

Finally, they’re ready for the first big milestone: THE WEDDING.

It’s the first time they really lets loose around your family, and they kinda love ’em more for it.

You’re proud when they start calling your family by their nicknames.

“Tia Lea” is now no longer “teeya leeya.”

…and even more proud when your family comes up with a brand new nickname for your S.O.

Sure, it might be “flac@”, or “fe@”, or worse, “flac@ fe@”, but you know it only means one thing: real love.
