In a surprising political turn of events, Prez Trump is garnering a great deal of support from Latino dudes.
There's a lot of theories about support for the Trump Administration among Latinos but, of course it's the "machismo" angle that sparks the imaginations of white people across the nation. For any 30-to-40-something white ladies reading this screed . . . It's all true. SEND NUDES!!! (No fatties . . . Okay, fatties too!!!)
Also, once again we remind our readers that the term Latinx doesn't really exist and it's only a passive-aggressive political trick that might have helped push some Hispanics against progressives.
But I digress . . .
The point here is that despite tough talk (or maybe because of it) Prez Trump has won respect from Latino voters. His progress has more to do with policy and his swagger . . . Not just recent, cheeky bean promo . . .
Check just a bit of statistical support for edification . . .
New York Times: The Macho Appeal of Donald Trump
And so, here's our exclusive for Monday . . .
IN A SCATHING REBUKE OF PREZ TRUMP, LOCAL LATINO LEADERS DENOUNCE THE PREZ, CALL HIM A RACIST & PROCLAIM THEIR ALLIANCE WITH THE KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY BALLOT!!!
Because TKC is a Westsider and Latino we're being snarky with our headlines and this write-up BUT it's fair to say that these men are the most prominent Latino leaders in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest. Already we've had some messages about this note that's sending shock waves throughout the KCMO urban core.
Here are the highlights . . .
"The three of us who are writing to you today have spent our careers fighting for the rights and dignity of Hispanics . . . in local government, in family social support, in education and in the justice system. All of this, and more, has been under sustained assault by [President] Donald Trump.
The conclusion . . .
"Fortunately, we have a great alternative. Joe Biden is an honorable and tested man . . . Hispanic groups have endorsed him. And Biden sees Trump for what he is — a racist fraud. "
More endorsements . . .
"Trump must go and so must his Republican enablers.
"Our own Democratic Congressman Emanuel Cleaver has stood with us for 40 years. Marching against racial injustice. Battling Jackson County's unfair tax assessments. Helping dreamers and new arrivals. He is our ally and our friend. [Congressman] Emanuel Cleaver deserves our vote.
"We're also voting for Democratic Nicole Galloway for Governor against Republican Mike Parson. She will restore honesty and accountability to Missouri.
"Please join us in this battle for the future of our families and our country. Vote. "
