These Latina Sisters Pranked Donald Trump’s Son (In Spanish) And It’s Genius

Meet Annie and Ceci Cardelle, the Internet’s latest rockstars who became a trending topic over the weekend after meeting and posting a photo with Donald Trump’s third child, Eric Trump.

But it wasn’t the fact that they got to snap a photo with Trump and his wife, Lara, that made them break the Internet, it was the huge statement that they made while doing it.

On Friday, Oct. 21 the two second-generation Cuban-Americans attended a local event in North Carolina with special guests Eric Trump and Lara. As proud Latinas and Hillary Clinton supporters, the Cardelle sisters wanted to protest.

That sparkle in her eye is everything ?.

They did it in the most trollish way ever – with a T-shirt that said: “Latinas Contra Trump” (Latinas Against Trump).

“I started getting nervous,” Annie told Buzzfeed, “because everyone there was so excited and I thought, Gosh, they’re going to get so angry if I protest this.”

But no one at the event was angry, and in fact, encouraged the sisters to take a photo with Eric and Lara. “I thought ‘contra’ was pretty clear, but I guess not,” Annie said. “I was like, ‘This is not happening. There’s no way they don’t see this shirt.’”

The photos have since gone viral on Twitter, garnering over 75K retweets and the attention of celebrities and news media alike.

“We were kind of in disbelief that no one understood this protest,” Ceci told Buzzfeed. “It really goes to show the lack of diversity in their team.”

You would think if Trump and his team know what hombre means, they’d be able to figure out that contra means against.

Oh, and by the way… “Latinas Contra Trump” is a T-shirt for sale now!

When This Man At Walmart Told A Latina To Leave The US, She Told Him “This Is My Country, Too”

Another day, another Latina’s shopping experience ending in Donald Trump-inspired xenophobia.

On Friday, while Dulce Nereyda, her daughter and mother were looking for baby shower gifts at an Arizona Walmart, they were interrupted by a bearded white man who didn’t like that she and her mom were speaking to each other in Spanish.

The Mexican-American woman, who didn’t get the entire encounter on camera, shared what she was able to record from the frightening verbal assault on Facebook.

“This ⬇️ man starts yelling, ‘I can’t wait until Trump does away with you all!’ I was like, ‘Excuse me.’ He yelled ‘Leave, just leave. YOU DON’T BELONG HERE!’ All because I was speaking Spanish to my mom,” she wrote of the unnamed man.

Dulce was stunned by the sudden display of racism and was unsure what to do. After seeing her daughter’s face, she felt like she couldn’t remain quiet, pulling out her phone to record the man harassing her and reminding him that she, too, belonged in the country.

So it really F*** happened ????????!!! As my Beautiful mommi, JORDAN, and I are shopping for Beto Ramos baby shower tomorrow at Walmart on Huntington. This ⬇️ man starts yelling " I can't wait until Trump does away with you all!" I was like excuse me. He yelled "Leave just leave YOU DON'T BELONG HERE!" All because I was speaking Spanish to my mom. I was so caught off guard that I didn't even know what to do. I always thought what would I ever do if that happened to me or my mom and it did. I felt scared at first and then I saw the look on my baby girls face ????????????. So if you know me I couldn't just leave it like that. I WANT TO EXPOSE THIS MAN FOR THE RACIST HE IS! And I assured my little Queen that this is her home and WE DO BELONG HERE????????????????!!!

“So do you want to tell me to get out again? Because this is my country, too,” she said as the camera faced the man.

While the man initially ignored her, it didn’t take long for him to continue with his bigoted, pro-Trump rant, saying, “I wish you guys would leave, and I can’t wait till we build the wall.”  

Making no indication that she had any intentions on leaving her country, Dulce once more asserted that she is American and that English is not the official language of the United States.

She says she posted the encounter on Facebook to both expose the man for the “racist he is” and also send an important message to her daughter.

“I assured my little queen that this is her home and we do belong,” she said.

Latina Faces Deportation After Confronting A Man Wearing A “Make America Great Again” Hat At A Mexican Restaurant

Latina Faces Deportation After Confronting A Man Wearing A “Make America Great Again” Hat At A Mexican Restaurant

Anything can trigger a person. It could either be something very subtle or very direct. People have no idea what will set someone off, and in our tense political times, confrontation can be inevitable. Whether a person goes off on someone because of the color of their skin, their hair, the language that they’re speaking, or by something that they’re wearing, people should always remain cautious. More importantly, if you see something offensive, you may want just to walk away. That is undoubtedly the unfortunate situation for a Latina living in Massachusetts.

A 41-year-old woman, who is from Brazil, confronted a white man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant.

It appears from the man’s recording that the woman walked behind him and took off his hat. For a brief time, it seemed as if the two were almost playing around. They both appear to be laughing.

Police arrested the woman because she got physical by grabbing his hat.

The woman was charged with alleged assault. Once officers checked her status and saw she was from Brazil and in the U.S. without documentation, they put her in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.

“Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” John Mohan, a public affairs officer for ICE’s Boston office, said in a statement to NBC News.

The woman is now facing deportation.

“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” Bryton Turner, the man in the video, told CBS News. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”

He also added: “I don’t ever want to assume people are illegal because I don’t think that’s fair to a lot of good citizens. It’s good that they got her.”

Santos has since been released but her deportation will be decided on in court at a later date.
