1. Latino Trump Supporter Marco Gutierrez Warns Of Dark Future With ‘Taco Trucks On Every Corner’

Latinos for Trump cofounder Marco Gutierrez issued the strange prophecy during a discussion of Trump’s proposal to deport millions. He began by quoting “Star Trek,” saying “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”

Then, for good measure, he added, “and different times, different problems.”

When asked to clarify, Gutierrez went from “Trek” to trucks, specifically taco trucks.

“My culture is a very dominant culture,” he warned. “And it’s imposing, and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.”

Naturally, folks on Twitter had some thoughts on the emergence of taco trucks as a campaign issue, causing #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner to trend:

11. Thank you

I wondered what the taco truck thing was about. My second thought was "and are we for them or against them?"

I love tacos. Glad we're in favor!

3. Trump surrogate, head of Latinos for Trump

Last night, on with Joy Reid, said that if Trump isn't elected "there will be a taco truck on every corner".

Shenanighans ensued.

5. If you've never eaten from one, yes!

You are missing a lot.

Taco trucks are fucking awesome! The food is scrumpdillyicious!

Pork or fish tacos are the best! And yes! Soft tortillas!

13. Amen to that, Sibling!

Would you believe there are some demented people who try to make enchilladas with flour tortillas? Imagine the gooey mess that results...

Actually, there are some large grocery stores in parts of this great country that carry stacks of flour tortillas, but no corn ones, other than the boxed folded and fried hard shells. I pity the poor people who live there... (I discovered this when I was doing my rotation taking care of my mother and wanted to make quesadillas for lunch - nary a decent tortilla to be found.)
