The Colorado Democrats and Denver Councilman Paul Lopez parked a taco truck in front of Donald Trump’s Denver field office at 18th and Clarkson streets Friday afternoon.
The lunch rush was over, but is there really a bad time for tacos?
According to Marco Gutierrez, co-founder of Latinos for Trump, there is, if not a bad time, a bad place for tacos, and that bad place would be “every corner.”
Gutierrez is among those conservative Latinos standing behind Trump even after he gave an immigration speech Wednesday that alienated some of his supporters.
Since Gutierrez told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Thursday that, “If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks on every corner,” (“it” being immigration), the internet has been alive with taco truck jokes and demands to know if that’s a threat or a promise.
So here came the political theater. The taco truck spent a half-hour outside Trump’s field office, where Lopez ate tacos and talked to voters.
Mmm … democracy.
