Ayayay, Donald Trump. Nope, not even eating a taco salad can save you now. It’s not even Taco Tuesday.
The multi-millionire mogul thought to celebrate Cince De Mayo by tweeting a picture of him with a taco salad. “I love Hispanics!” the tweet said.
Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! https://t.co/ufoTeQd8yA pic.twitter.com/k01Mc6CuDI

Oh, Trump. Trump, Trump, Trump. You just had to go there. Remember who invented tacos? Right. Mexicans. The very same people who you called “rapists” and “drug pushers”, wanted to build a wall around and make them pay for it. SMH right now.
You know, stuff like this just comes back to bite you in the butt. Just ask this journalist who did a bit of good old-fashioned investigation to check whether taco salad were really on the menu. Guess not.
@BuzzFeedAndrew this not a joke. We just called.

Twitter users quickly picked up it.
@realDonaldTrump Trump Grill doesn’t serve Taco Bowls but never mind, eh?

It was pretty easy to see how Trump was trying to pander to the Hispanic demographic. This is like Hillary tweeting a selfie of her sitting down to some General Tso’s Chicken and Chow Mein and saying “I love Asians!”, or her latest gaffe of saying on a radio interview how she carried “hot sauce in her purse” (like in Beyonce’s “Formation”) and then later asked “well is it working?” when asked if it african-americans like her. (But that’s another story for another time.)
The Twitterverse swooped in to share their own parodies.

@realDonaldTrump C’mon man, even your Mexican food has a wall.

And some just shut Trump down like it was no one’s business. Brutal honesty!
@realDonaldTrump Hispanics don’t like you.

*whispers* … baby hands.
Donald has to eat taco bowls because his hands are too small to hold an actual taco https://t.co/JeWNWNBpM8

How dare you, Michael; now I’m never going to be able to look at a taco the same way again.
