Misleading headline department, feeding the silly machine. Reuters goofs.

No, First Lady Jill Biden did not call Latinos "breakfast tacos."

If you read the full quote in context her meaning is clear. It's an awkward sentence but not a putdown.

I read the full quote. Unforced stereotyping error.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

The whole quote is cringe. Not clear to me where she was headed, but it would have been better to just stop talking.

TLDR?

In New York City, people love the convenience stores known as bodegas that are often run by Dominican or Puerto Rican merchants. Biden mispronounced the word as "bogedas."

Can't disagree. And somebody on her staff wrote and approved that.

I thought it was silly.

Let’s diagram this sentence (fragment), shall we?

Quote

“…the diversity of this community,
  • as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx,
  • as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and
  • as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio,
is your strength.

Did she call the community a bodega? No.
Did she call the community a blossom? No.
Did she call the community a breakfast taco?

Only if you believe Al Gore said he invented the internet, or Hillary Clinton said all Trump voters were deplorable.

Seriously people.

weird... talk about misleading headlines... The Reuters headline did not say that Biden called people 'tacos', it says, Jill Biden chided for saying Latinos as unique as 'breakfast tacos'

which is what she did... full quote:

"Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength," Biden said.

breaking down the sentence, she is saying that "this community" is (among other things) as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

No.She is saying "Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community is your strength," with flowery little phrases inserted that seem to have confused everyone.

The media is desperate for the halcyon days when every morning brought clickbait in the form of White House gaffes. No wonder this country is populated with morons.
