'So Insensitive': Jeb Lists 4 Ways Trump's Taco Bowl Tweet Was 'An Insult'
It was the taco bowl seen around the world: Donald Trump eating the dish on Cinco de Mayo, sparking amusement, anger and widespread debate.
Former presidential candidate Jeb Bush recently shared his own reaction to the GOP front-runner in his first post-campaign interview, saying that politics have now become “a personality show.”
“What Donald Trump did, it’s so insensitive,” Bush told a Dutch newspaper, according to a translation reported Tuesday by The Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“First, not all Latinos are Mexican. Second, not all Hispanics eat tacos. Thirdly, a taco bowl is an American dish,” he added.
“And fourth, if you’re laying next to what he said earlier about Latinos, it’s an insult. It’s like sitting behind a watermelon, and saying: I love African Americans.”
Bush’s wife, Columba, was born in Mexico.
The former Florida governor also told the newspaper that he has “said from the beginning” what he thought of Trump, adding that he believes “Trump played according to different rules than me.”
