But what we appear to be seeing with Jill Biden’s plummeting popularity is more than her simply being lumped in with her husband and his family. There’s more going on. Mrs. Biden’s misstep last week comparing the Hispanic community with tacos showed the First Lady has a fundamental misunderstanding of Americans: Hispanic or otherwise. Jill Biden is an elitist. She thinks she’s better and smarter than everyone else, she’s condescending in her tone, and she’s frequently off-putting.
When asked for a statement from Mrs. Biden to address the controversy and outrage spreading across Saudi Arabia, the First Lady’s spokesperson Harry Hotmess went on the offensive. The First Lady never meant to compare the Saudi people to a culinary dish, and she’s deeply sorry about the falafel kerfuffle.
Well done, Doctor Jill, truly… well done. For the record, “bodegas” are small, family-run grocery stores that are commonly found in New York City, whereas “Bogota” is the capital of Columbia, somewhere Hunter likes to travel to when he wants to buy some top-notch cocaine. But the line that really doomed Doctor Jill was her comparison of the Hispanic community to tacos. She’s brought a new meaning to the phrase, “Hmm, I feel like a taco.”
The diversity is staggering! Oddly, the US fast food industry has remained silent on the issue, despite the threat to their operations. Someone, please, send a memo to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: a mighty influx of breakfast tacos marches day-and-night across our border with Mexico. They are being distributed — for free! — by bus and airplane from sea to shining sea.
Franklin and our other Founding Fathers understood the importance of being unified, and they asserted that such unification must be centered on common values shared by all Americans. Almost two-and-a-half centuries later, however, our friends on the Left appear hell bent on division, not unity. Separating us by inherent traits is the objective, and identity politics is the tactic. Common values be damned.
