GOP candidate Cassy Garcia Lampoons VP Harris and Jill Biden: ‘My pronouns are Ta/Co’
First Lady Jill Biden’s recent “taco” comment and Vice President Kamala Harris’ perpetual ridiculous comments offer comedic gold for those still brave enough to follow politics.
The most recent hilarity comes from Hispanic Texas GOP congressional candidate Cassy Garcia, who combined Jill Biden’s commentary with Vice President Kamala Harris’ recent over-the-top political correctness.
Check out Garcia’s comment – then watch VP Harris’ video.

The First Lady compares Hispanics to food
Earlier this month, Jill Biden was speaking to a Hispanic organization and said this: “The Latino community is as distinct as the bodegas in the Bronx, as beautiful as the flowers in Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio.”
Biden immediately came under fire from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, who posted a simple message for the First Lady on Twitter, “We are not tacos.”
NAHJ encourages @FLOTUS and its communications team to take the time to better understand the complexities of our people and our communities.
We are not tacos.
Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by diverse diasporas, cultures and food traditions.

Biden later apologized, but Twitter was on. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) changed his profile picture to a taco.

Newly elected Texas congresswoman Mayra Flores (R-TX) used Biden’s comment to illustrate inflation under her husband’s administration.

Others join the party with Garcia
There were plenty of humorous replies in response to Garcia’s tweet. It seems that many have embraced the whole practice of “pronouns”. Many have attempted to keep things culturally appropriate.
I am Michael Diaz and my pronouns are Burr/ito

Others wanted clarification on the status of the pronoun ta/co.
Pure gold! BUT…
Do you identify as corn or flour??

Others preferred to keep their pronouns in the food category.

Democrats in trouble with Hispanics
Democrats may have no idea how overwhelmed they are with Hispanic voters. A recent Quinnipiac poll showed that just 19% of Hispanics approve of Joe Biden’s professional performance, 70% disapprove. Being called tacos didn’t help Democrats with Hispanics.
And while Democrats like to portray Hispanics as single-issue voters, that issue being immigration, they’re also preoccupied with the economy, foreign policy, gun violence and the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
For Hispanics, soaring gas and food prices are front and center, as they are for all other Americans. In places like Florida and Texas, Hispanic GOP candidates run for office and they win.
In Texas, especially along the southern border of the United States, it is candidates like Cassy Garcia and others who have a very good chance of winning in November. Garcia will face longtime incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) to represent a district that runs along the southern border where the population is overwhelmingly Hispanic.
After Mayra Flores’ victory last month, Garcia issued a warning to Democrats: “The red wave is here.”
The Democrats are losing Hispanics because their priorities are very different from ours.
