In the now-infamous video of Mitt Romney speaking to some of his contributors (you know, the one where he basically said he could care less about half of America ‘cause they’re all freeloaders), Mitt also talks about his father, who was white but was born in Mexico. Mitt said that “had he been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot of winning this. And I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.”
Hahaha! Oh wait, no. Not funny. Although the people he’s speaking to seem to find it hilarious.
Well, the awesome Rosie Perez is fighting back by totally burning Mitt in a new video. She talks sarcastically about how it would be easier for Mitt to win the election if he were Latino, especially considering Hispanics make up 17% of the population and account for a whopping less than 2% of elected and appointed officials.
Remember when Mitt got a really bad spray tan before appearing on Univision?
Rosie also names some of our famous Hispanic presidents, like Jorge Washington and Jorge Bush (you’ve heard of them, right?). She then realizes that if only Romney had a few more advantageous characteristics (like a vagina, for instance), his chances of winning the election would increase even more.
“If you were a gay Latina," she says to Mitt, "this election would be in the bag for you!”
