Doc Jill Faces Breakfast Taco Blowback, Dems Impacted by Racist Insult

'We are not tacos. Do not reduce us to stereotypes... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) First Lady Jill Biden is likely pinching some of her husband’s chemist-grade meds after the brutal blowback and roasting she received for comparing Hispanics and their community to breakfast tacos.

And ranking Democrats, already struggling with Hispanic voters, could probably use some medicinal curatives after Doc Jill‘s racist insult rocked social media.

As the keynote speaker at a ““Latinx IncluXion Luncheon,” Biden broke out her best Kamala Cackles imitation, butchering the word “bodegas” as “boguhdahs” and proclaiming that the “diversity of this community” was “as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio.”

The uniquely crunchy-shelled Hispanic community, it’s safe to say, didn’t take Biden’s derisive quip as a compliment.

“We are not tacos,” admonished the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and encouraged Biden and “her communications team to take time to better understand the complexities of our people & communities.”

“Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by various diasporas, cultures & food traditions,” they tweeted. “Do not reduce us to stereotypes.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was a little more subtle, switching his Twitter profile picture as he saw appropriate.

“I just want to clarify to @FLOTUS is that although I am a proud Cuban-American, I do NOT identify as a taco,” informed Mercedes Schlapp, former strategic comms director for the Trump administration.

After some semblance of clarity and coherence descended on Doc Jill’s comms team, a mea culpa was issued.

“The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,” tweeted her press secretary, Michael LaRosa.

The apology was mocked nearly as ruthlessly as Biden’s original insult.

“I’m sorry Michael that they had you tweet this out today,” lamented Steve Guest, special communications advisor to Sen. Ted “Chorizo” Cruz.

While Jill Biden’s insult provided ample fodder for hilarity and partisan wit, its gross tone-deafness and racial implications leaked into a Democrat party trying to maintain its influence and credibility with Hispanic voters.

Rep. Mayra Flores, who pulled off a historic GOP upset in a deep-blue Texas congressional district, tied Biden’s racial slur to the treatment conservative Latinos receive from Democrats and the mainstream media.

Squad mob crony Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez probably was none too pleased with Biden’s racist rhetoric, delivering her GOP opponent a taco-perfect talking point to feed New York’s Hispanic vote.

“Even in New York Jill Biden’s comments are upending Hispanic districts,” noted Texas Republican US House candidate and presidential taco-matchmaker Irene Armendariz-Jackson.

“The last thing you want to do is get our community angry and they did that in more ways than they imagine,” she said.

“November is going to be tough for them.”

This probably didn’t help.
