The Internet Is Demolishing the Latest Ridiculous Statement from a Trump Supporter

#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner is the perfect way to start your Labor Day weekend.


It’s been a crazy day for tacos after Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez went on MSNBC’s “All in With Chris Hayes” Thursday to say that a White House without Donald Trump would mean, of all things, more taco trucks.

The discussion came a day after Trump’s meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and a much-awaited speech on immigration. During his speech in Arizona, he had strong words for undocumented immigrants, specifically those he described as criminals. “Their days have run out in this country. The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over. They’re going out. They’re going out fast,” he said.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
