Latina sisters trolled Eric Trump at a campaign rally and of course he was clueless
The Trump campaign likes to say the system is rigged against them, but really, they know how to mess up big time all on their own. Like Donald Trump talking about pussy on a hot mic or these two Latina sisters trolling Eric Trump at a rally with nothing more than a simple Spanish phrase. It’s almost too perfect. According to BuzzFeed, Annie and Ceci Cardelle have been against Trump from the very beginning. I mean, they’re two young, smart, Latina women, so of course they are. But when Ceci heard that Eric was coming to their town for a campaign stop, she wanted to go and see what was up. Anna told BuzzFeed, “I was against it. I didn’t want to go hear Eric Trump speak, but she really wanted to, so I couldn’t just go without making a little bit of a statement.”
And not without at least trying let Trump’s son and his wife know that they weren’t welcome. So, she grabbed a white T-shirt and a Sharpie and wrote “Latina contra Trump” across her chest. Just in case you went to Georgetown University (a prestigious American university) like Eric, that means “Latina against Trump.” I don’t even speak Spanish and I know what that means. Your dog probably knows what that means. Eric and his wife, bodyguards, and campaign staff had no clue.
After the rally, a reporter who did understand the T-shirt dared the girls to try to get a picture with the candidate’s son and his wife, Lara Yunaska. Let’s not forget that this is a campaign event for Donald Trump, who has some of the tightest security. They don’t let protestors into their rallies (since Trump supporters and protesters start to throw blows). There are security guards who check people out before letting them close to a candidate for a picture. They even have “vigilantes” who patrol the rallies. It wasn’t just Eric who didn’t know — it was everyone.
Eric (who looks like the lead character in a movie where rich kids murder a girl and get away with it at summer camp) was just too psyched to get to meet two young Latina women to take a minute and realize that contra means against, not with. So there he is with his arm around two laughing girls wearing a T-shirt protesting his father.
Annie told BuzzFeed, “It’s been almost two years of Trump continuously putting down Latinos, making us feel like we don’t belong. So, my whole thing was to go there and say, ‘I’m Latina and we’re against you because of what you say about our race.’” Any attempt by the campaign to say Trump and his team understand the experience of these women goes totally out the window with Eric posing for a picture with them. I mean, knowing the word contra isn’t hard. It just goes to show how fake and myopic the Trumps really are. It’s about boosting their image more than it is about understanding what the hell people need and want.
On ABC News Sunday, Eric told George Stephanopoulos that they weren’t “living in their own bubble of support” and claimed the most current polls, which put Trump about seven to eight points behind in crucial states, are “inaccurate.” Eric said, “I just came back from North Carolina and I just came back from Ohio — I mean you can’t drive, George, 500 yards without seeing another Trump sign.”
Eric might need to squint a little harder and see what those signs actually say about his father before counting on them for election day.
