The U.S. presidential race continues to entertain, particularly where Donald Trump and his bird of paradise hair is concerned. Trump’s derogatory statements on immigrants angered many, but one public figure thanks him for his buffoonery. America Ferrara published a Huffington Post essay, which exposes the counterproductive results of Trump’s campaign. Ferrara takes Trump down for his “pretty offensive” statements about Latino immigrants. She believes Trump unwittingly fired up the American Latino vote, which should set his temper ablaze:
[W]hat you just did with your straight talk was send more Latino voters to the polls than several registration rallies combined! Thank you for that. Here we are pounding the pavement to get American Latinos to the polls, while your tactic proves most effective. Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric.
The truth is, Mr. Trump, that your comments mean that you fail to see that immigrants are what have made this nation. They are at the core of our ideals, and they are the foundation that keeps us afloat. No, Mr. Trump, you may not reduce us to drug dealers and rapists. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters. We are valedictorians and honor students. We are college graduates, bankers, police officers, entertainers, teachers, journalists, politicians and we are the future of America.
Ferrara continues with her rip-roaring sendoff to Trump. She calls him one of “an antiquated and endangered species of bigots,” and she thanks him several times for reminding Latino voters to rally. Ferrara stands triumphant amongst a growing number of Trump critics.
Ferrara’s not the only actor speaking out against Trump’s ridiculous rhetoric. George Takei proudly pish-poshed Trump’s “traditional marriage” stance, which Takei points out is at odds with Trump’s three trips to the altar. And counting.
