Mexican Restaurant Owners Receive Backlash for Trump Support. They Respond.
Jorge and Betty Rivas own Sammy's Mexican Grill, a Mexican restaurant in Arizona. Jorge and Betty Rivas also support Donald Trump and sat behind him at a recent rally. Raise your hand if you know what happened next. Trump Derangement Syndrome can happen at a moment's notice (see WATCH: 11-Year-Old Told She Couldn’t Use Trump for ‘Hero’ Project By Teacher and Happy Valentine’s Day! Slate Says Donald Trump is Ruining Sex). Owning a restaurant while having a different opinion from (presumably) white liberals is all it takes for your restaurant to be harassed.
The Rivases aren't going to be intimidated by these assclowns. How do you say "suck it" in Espanol?
"As naturalized United States citizens, we have the right to support President Trump or to support any other candidate that loves this country... Just because we are Latinos, it doesn't mean that we have to think like every other Latino in this country. We are individuals, and we feel that we have the constitutional right to meet, to support whoever we want."
The sad thing is that if there's anything that should be able to bring us together as one people, it's Mexican food. We're basically talking about massive piles of meat, cheese, and gluten, all loaded up on a plate and washed down with margaritas. If you want just a bowl of cheese, they will bring you a bowl of cheese. It's impossible to be unhappy while enjoying Mexican food — unless, of course, you're a (presumably) white liberal.
