“Democringe”: Jill Biden Criticized For Remark About Hispanic Community
First lady Jill Biden was the subject of criticism for her remark about the Hispanic community, in which she said they were as “unique” as “the breakfast tacos in San Antonio.”
Biden’s widely-panned comment was made during the 2022 UnidosUS Annual Conference “Siempre Adelante: Our Quest for Equity” in San Antonio, Texas.
“[UnidosUS President Raul Yzaguirre] helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength,” Biden said.
Christina Pushaw, Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) press secretary, called Biden’s statement cringeworthy.
“Imagine the regime media meltdown if a conservative called Hispanics ‘breakfast tacos’ like Dr. Jill Biden did at the Latinx Luncheon today. Democringe,” Pushaw tweeted.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) posted a clip of Biden’s remark, saying: “No wonder Hispanics are fleeing the Democratic Party!”
