Internet jumps on Trump for ignoring coronavirus crisis to plug restaurant he saw on Fox News

Published 1 min ago on March 1, 2020

While most of the country is anxiously watching frightening reports on the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the country, Donald Trump took time out to use his Twitter megaphone to plug a Mexican restaurant in Arizona that has come under attack because the owners are supporters of his.

Reacting to a report on “Fox & Friends” — of course — about the owners of Sammy’s Mexican Grill being hammered for their support of the president, Trump tweeted, “The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona. Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy’s!”

Commenters were quick to remind the president that maybe he should be spending more time dealing with the plunging stock market and a deadly virus that appears to be sweeping across the country than tweeting a restaurant review.

1. In Trump's mind,

that plug was a campaign nod to the Latinx community that will send voters his way.

8. many many reviews dated 3/1/2020

people are leaving 5 star reviews for them mostly. Saw a few one star.

Robert B. who gave it 4 stars said:
Trump is the worse thing that's s happened to our country. He's dangerous childish and corrupt but what does that have to do with Sammy's food and service. It's a Mexican Restaurant and a quite good one. The service is friendly and attentive. The owner couldn't be more accommodating. I go there to eat the food not to have my or her patriotism questioned. It's just tacos do God's sake...... get a life.
