Whatever you do, don’t read the comments on LiveLeak.
The racist regime of President Donald Trump — an ignorant demagogue without a single Latino in his cabinet — has removed the Spanish section of the presidential website at whitehouse.gov — but wait, THERE’S MORE!

8. Chocolatl will now be known as Swiss Miss.
7. Latinos are now Invisible.
6. Marihuana will be called Kale. [Mas…]
