Syndicated Latino radio host Enrique Santos told Hillary Clinton that his whole family hates her, and what’s she gonna do about it?
“My father’s voting for Trump because he says that he can’t trust you. My mother says you’re a crook and my brother says you should go to jail,” he said. “How would you convince them to sit on your side of the field?”
He’s a supporter, it seems. His family, not so much.
Stop listening to the “relentless . . . ridiculous, untrue attacks, Clinton responded
Well, the attacks are relentless. But ridiculous and untrue? Sorry, can’t quite agree.
It seems Trump’s efforts to label Clinton negatively are already sticking, though of course others got the ball rolling with her long ago. It’s like the way he went after his primary opponents — while over the top, his categorizations stuck because there was a strong element of truth to them. With Hillary, the examples of her corruption are so legion, it’s hard to go over the top.
Despite his rhetoric, Trump’s support among Latinos is not far off the 27 percent Mitt Romney got in 2012. I think a lot of Hispanics will find Trump’s strong character appealing. Machismo, after all, is a Spanish word.
