If you wanted to run for President of the United States as a prank, in order to insult as many Americans as possible on a national stage, would you do anything differently than Beto O’Rourke and Corey Booker? Sure, Hillary Clinton’s “Basket of Deplorables” comment was extremely insulting – but that was only directed at Donald Trump’s voters.
Beto O’Rourke and Corey Booker insulted all of America in the first Democrat debates of the 2020 campaign season – by blathering in Spanish on stage.
Here’s a pro tip: If you want to show your extreme level of contempt for your own people, just do what Corey Booker and Beto O’Rourke do. When the people are trying to vet candidates for a presidential election, just talk to them in a language they can’t understand. Awesome job, guys! It’s bad enough that Americans now have to “Press 1 for English” for literally any customer service call that we make. Do we have to suffer through politicians treating us the same now?
Apparently, yes! Since the Democrats decided to go there, we may as well make fun of their accents.
Irony alert: Beto O’Rourke is the most Hispanic-fluent candidate running for the 2020 nomination – but he has the absolute worst accent imaginable. Robert Francis O’Rourke realized early on in his Texas political career that he needed to learn Spanish in order to “Hispander” for votes. He’s learned the language and understands it very well. He even gave himself a fake Mexican nickname, “Beto,” to trick gullible Democrat voters into thinking he might be part Hispanic. He’s not.
He’s absolutely as white as the name Robert Francis O’Rourke sounds.
The look on Corey Booker’s face in the debates when “Beto” started blundering his way through pidgin Spanish was priceless. Not that Booker’s Spanish is any better. Booker actually has a much better Spanish accent than “Beto,” but Booker has a tough time speaking the language. How do we know this? Because we could pretty much understand every word Booker said as he was Hispandering:
“Open border-os es GOOD-o! El Trump-o es muy BAD-o! Me llamo Spartacus!”
Thanks for playing, Booker. Really insulting.
Julian Castro, of course, could not understand either one of those dorks. That’s not because of their terrible accents, but because Julian Castro is perhaps an even bigger fraud than O’Rourke and Booker combined.
The elitist one-percenter household that Julian Castro grew up in didn’t speak Spanish. They probably thought it was a peasant tongue. Instead, Julian Castro learned Japanese and Latin in the elite prep schools that he attended. That’s why Julian Castro did not break into Spanish during the debates himself, and also the reason why he looked so confused when the white guy and the half-black guy started speaking Spanish. He couldn’t understand them any better than the rest of us.
But, boy, can Julian Castro pronounce the names of Central American countries as if he’s a soccer announcer. “HWAT-ay-mala, NEECUH-rrrra-GWAH and HONE-dure-oss!” Julian Castro doesn’t speak a lick of Spanish, but he suckers gullible Democrats and Hispanic voters by affecting a thick accent whenever a microphone is around.
Not to belittle the ship of fools even further, but we were reminded of a fun fact about Donald Trump when he held another historic visit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un on June 30, 2019. At some point, after he won the 2016 election, Donald Trump took a crash course and learned to speak Korean.
Don’t believe us? Go back and watch the videos from Trump and Kim’s first historic meeting again. Watch President Trump’s body language and facial expressions every time Kim Jong Un says something. The president clearly understands everything that Kim is saying to him before the message has been translated.
Trump has never boasted publicly about the fact that he learned Korean as part of his personal mission to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula and Southeast Asia. We would also note that Korean is a much more difficult language to learn than Spanish, especially for Americans.
President Trump’s IQ is clearly off the charts. But you never hear him spouting off in Korean because he respects the American people more than the likes of Corey Booker, “Beto” O’Rourke or Julian Castro.
While they’re busy Hispandering for foreign votes, President Trump will continue speaking “blue collar American” to the voters who are cheering him on.
