Twitter completely loses it after Melania Trump tweets her appreciation for Hispanic heritage

October is Hispanic Heritage Month and the White House celebrated the occasion by hosting a dinner on Friday evening.

During the event, Donald Trump took a moment to welcome everyone. Then he mocked how Puerto Ricans pronounce the name of their country:

Old white guy pretending to speak with a Spanish accent. Hilarious, right?!

Oh, but it didn’t stop there.

The Donald then went on to say he “knows some” Latino people and “they’re very tough and they’re very smart” before adding “sometimes they’re too tough,” harkening back to his racist “bad hombres” remark from the 2016 presidential campaign.

After the event, First Lady Melania Trump tweeted some rather dark and somber-looking photos of the allegedly “wonderful celebration”:

Naturally, folks on Twitter had a lot to say about it…

    More Trump Derangement Syndrome. Leftists don’t have any real arguments, so they just call everyone racist and throw temper tantrums. And then they glorify each other’s temper tantrums. It’s just one big temper tantrum party.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Paddock is a lefty. They are full of hate.

      Your name could scarcely be more appropriate. I notice you can mock, but you can’t manage a single coherent defence of the indefensible.

      Twitter is for morons and young queens who are too stupid to realize that beyond their butts, abs, biceps and Andrew Christian undies there is practically nothing else, especially when it comes to conversation.

    • scotshot

      That’s a big load even coming from a Troll as you. Your leader – Herr Trunpf – throws the best tantrums.
      Take your crocodile tears somewhere else Snowflake.

    I remember months ago when the left complained that the White House wasn’t recognizing minorities with their themed months. Now they are with Spanish Heritage month and the left still isn’t happy

    • AJAnders

      Way to completely miss the point.

      Having a Spanish Heritage month is great. But having a president with a history of saying moronic, racist and cruel things about said race while he pretends to give a crap about them deserves all the negative feedback he can get. It’s not a left issue, it’s a dumbass Trump issue.

      It would be like a 400 pound person preaching to a 200 pound person to lose weight. The irony and hypocrisy is not lost on people and you best prepare yourself to get burned.

      So enforcing existing immigration laws is now “racist and cruel”?

    • Bob LaBlah

      Question. How happy is the right with all of this?

    • scotshot

      I know you are but what am I.

    • scotshot

      I don’t know anyone who complained about it. Much like the Golden State Warriorsrefuse to be in the same space with him.

  • Mandrake

    Is copying and pasting a group of tweets supposed to add validation? Frankly, thought Trump’s pronunciation of Puerto Rico and his remarks were amusing. There was nothing mocking in them. And once again, whenever there’s a chance to mock the FLOTUS, you can count on Queerty.

      She questioned Obama’s birthplace. She’s a bigot.

      Y’all are trying to defend the indefensible. No one bused thousands of people into New Hampshire, he did not win the popular vote, that was not the largest inauguration crowd ever, and climate change was not invented by Chinese people. He has definitely lied more than any other modern president, and probably more than any president ever. He assaults people and he’s a pedophile. You’ll never win defending him.

    i’m guessing the most she knows about anything hispanic is occasionally having to tolerate her husband’s little burrito.

  • OzJosh

    While any Americans with functioning brains and morals certainly have our sympathy, those of us at a safe distance can’t help but be amused by this rolling shit-show. There have been tacky, gaudy, insane tinpot dictators before, but really nothing to rival this couple of clowns.

  • Luna1979

    I don’t think they should celebrate anything. If they do, it’s not good enough and if they don’t then they’re racists. If they do, they’re racists too actually. There is absolutely nothing that will make everyone happy. Or anyone. Just cancel it.
