Remember that Latinx Trump supporter who told us to be scared, because if Hillary were elected there would be taco trucks on every corner? This vendido:
Dude was right, and here are the Pocho Ocho Top Reasons Why:
8. I’ll be forced into a perpetual cycle of “How many tacos can I eat in one sitting?”
