Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today, white people everywhere will drink generic Mexican beer and have no clue what they’re celebrating.
Historically, the day is a celebration of the Mexican army’s defeat of French forces in the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. Over the years the Americanized version is more a celebration of Mexican culture than anything else.
Meanwhile in New York, presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, is celebrating the day with a Trump Tower taco bowl.
Trump posted a pic of himself digging into a fancy taco salad-type dish, giving a thumbs up, with a caption that read: “Happy Cinco de Mayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”
He loves Hispanics! And tacos!
Sadly, Trump Tower says they don’t serve these delicious taco bowls:
Just got off phone with Trump Grill, says they don't serve taco bowls. It's not on the menu online.
