 Jill Biden criticized ‘tacos’ comments during her speech to Hispanic voters: “It’s going to be wild”


The first lady spoke at the UnidosUS event in San Antonio

After declaring to a group of Hispanic voters in Texas that they were as “unique” as “breakfast tacos,” Jill Biden was criticized by her right-wing detractors, according to the Independent.

The First Lady said this on Monday in San Antonio while addressing the UnidosUS Annual Conference.

Additionally, Ms. Biden was criticized by observers for incorrectly pronouncing the word “bodega” in her address as “bogged.”

“(Raul Yzaguirre) helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the biogas of The Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength,” Ms. Biden said, according to video of the event.

“Jill Biden just said Hispanics are as ‘unique’ as tacos. This isn’t Veep. Which White House speechwriter just won a bet for getting the First Lady to say something like this?” tweeted Steve Guest, Ted Cruz’s special communications adviser.

Another Twitter user added: “Dems have no idea how to talk to Hispanics…we will lose our democracy on their watch because they are so tone-deaf!!!”

“It’s going to be wild watching the same people who criticized Trump for tweeting a picture of himself with a taco bowl defending Jill Biden’s taco remarks,” added another.

According to analytics firm Catalyst, about six out of ten Latino voters supported Joe Biden in the 2020 race, although there was an 8% swing in favor of Donald Trump over the past year.

In her speech, Ms. Biden stated that Latinos who supported her husband in the 2020 election “were correct to put your faith in him,” but she added, “we need to do much more.” The 2022 midterm elections are just four months away.
