Donald Trump celebrated Cinco de Mayo by failing to effectively pander to Hispanics.

This tweet was supposed to endear Trump to Hispanics, but Twitter was not having it.
The guy is just a buffoon.

But sadly he is a buffoon who is about to receive classified briefings, just like he wasn't a conspiracy theory believing lunatic.

    Security briefings only if he wins the nomination, Gryph, and even then President Obama has the last say on what can be released. If memory serves.

      Security briefings above "Secret"
      are only done on a "need to know" basis, and only in broad terms, no details. and would be tailored to his background check, given trumps shady past associates,
      I could see him getting a folder with a one page bullet point summary.. followed by a 20 page warning about treason

    Cinco de Mayo is a very specifically Mexican observance, not Hispanic.

    Donald Trump can't help but be a complete dick. No wonder Sara loves him, his ignorant pandering matches hers.

    Run, Sara, run!!!

      Trump has no idea when to use "Latinos" and when to use "Hispanics," and now he shows that he doesn't even know when to use "Mexicans."

      Delete
    4. Even Mexicans don't celebrate it except in Puebla.

      And there is nothing Mexican about taco bowls. Or Margaritas for that matter.

    Just keep in mind that this buffoon is pretty likely to spill secret info from his briefings because.. donald. He WILL do it when someone challenges him. It is in his nature (i.e. because.. donald).
    What will the FBI do then?
    Do the 'mercan people want someone who spouts off secrets because someone challenged him? What a little child - with child size hands and you know, weenie ("I can guarantee you that").

      Yes, Richard Clarke explained this on Lawrence O'Donnell last night or so. Pres. Obama controls what Trump and Clinton see; the items come from open sources. BUT Clinton has already hired her own team of experts who give her these type of briefings every morning already.

      He's posing with a bowl of food to pander.

      I'm sure after this was taken he had his lackeys remove it and bring him a steak.

      You can get a better indication of the man looking in the background. Look at the dozens of framed photos, all of Trump with someone he considers famous. Big Brag. And all those "trophies". Right, like he's won a golf tournament? More pissing contests. The room is cluttered with ME ME LOOK AT ME I'M AWESOME.

      By contrast, look at the current oval office. Or even Obama's working office.

      If you could remove Trump's ego you'd have nothing left but a little deflated puddle on the floor.

      8:12 "The Meal, Combat, Individual (MCI) replaced the C-ration in 1958 but remained nearly identical to its predecessor, and troops continued to use the popular C-ration, or "Charlie rats," moniker. Meals, Ready to Eat (MREs) replaced MCIs in 1981, with lightweight packaging instead of cans. Troops grew so fond of Tabasco sauce that it was officially included in MREs, starting with the Gulf War in 1990. Most recently, in 2012, the military switched over from 1/8-ounce glass bottles of Tabasco to ketchup-sized packets in MREs, for the sake of minimizing weight and cost."

Speaking plainly about many of the additional problems and crimes that have occurred due to illegal immigration is not being a bigot, it is being honest. Speaking plainly about putting America and her safety first is not being a bigot, it is a conversation this country desperately needs to have.
