The latest scandal out of Donald Trump’s campaign: Possible lemonade theft. It appears that Eric Trump, one of his five children, put lemonade in a water cup at an In-N-Out burger, which the restaurant frowns upon.
The photographer confirms that the encounter happened at an In-N-Out location in Las Vegas (Trump posed for a photo with his wife at an In-N-Out after the debate last night). A marketing rep for In-N-Out declined to comment on the photo, and Trump’s campaign has yet to return requests for comment. We’ll keep you updated if anyone addresses this apparent thievery.
And an example of his dumbassness:
“Contra,” in Spanish, means “against.” If Eric Trump didn’t know that, he could have asked Annie Cardelle — who wore a “Latina contra Trump” shirt to a pro-Donald Trump event on Friday — before taking a picture with her.
He could have even used context clues — such as the slim-to-impossible likelihood that a millennial Latina would support the Republican presidential nominee whose tentpole policy proposal is to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.
“We weren’t protesting the fact that he’s a conservative or a Republican,” Cardelle, a second-generation American of Cuban descent, told BuzzFeed News about her presence at the North Carolina event. “We were protesting their particular treatment of Hispanics and Latino immigrants in this country.”
“It’s been almost two years of Trump continuously putting down Latinos, making us feel like we don’t belong,” she added. “So, my whole thing was to go there and say, ‘I’m Latina and we’re against you because of what you say about our race.'”
“We were kind of in disbelief that no one understood this protest,” Cardelle’s sister, Ceci, said. “It really goes to show the lack of diversity in their team.”
