Progressive Jill Biden thinks the hispanic community is as unique as tacos.
During the recent “LatinX IncluXion Luncheon” the First Lady made her inclusive statement, The Daily Caller reports.
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?pic.twitter.com/DXfJgYz0g5

Then the reactions came, including one from Texas Senator Ted Cruz:

The report went on:
Biden seemed to mispronounce the word “bodegas,” which are popular corner stores located throughout New York City.
The term “LatinX” has been a center of conflict among the Hispanic community as it aims to erase gendered language traditionally used in the Spanish language, as well as the Hispanic and Latino communities. Nearly a quarter of Hispanics said they preferred to be called “Hispanic” and 15% preferred the label “Latino” over “LatinX,” according to a Gallup poll. The majority, 57%, said they did not care.
Forty percent of Hispanics are offended or bothered by the term “LatinX,” according to a Bendixen & Amandi International poll. Only 2% between the ages of 40-54 and 4% between the ages of 18-29 describe themselves by the gender neutral term.
Biden then was forced to issue an apology according to The Daily Wire.
After much backlash — including an official denouncement from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), which pointedly told Biden, “We are not tacos” — the first lady issued an apology via Twitter.
“The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,” Michael LaRosa, press secretary to the first lady and special assistant to the president, tweeted.
Things appear to be going great for the Biden’s.

Truly SHOCKING to see how clueless this FAKE President & his family & administration are. TOTAL CRINGE. Like watching a train wreck in slow motion. They’re so bent on labeling us. What racists! Pushing their racist narrative in order to create hatred & division so they can divide & conquer! SHAME.
Does this mean we can call the entire FAKE Biden administration “Matzo Balls”?
