Video: ‘The Daily Show’ mocks Hillary Clinton for ‘pandering to Latinos’

Not everyone on the Left is thrilled with Hillary Clinton’s proclamation that she’ll go even further than Barack Obama when it comes immigration reform. Al Madrigal, a Hispanic comedian and regular correspondent on The Daily Show, skewered Clinton for “pandering to Latinos”:

“So, I said it — am I president now or what? Are we done here, people?” Stewart joked on Wednesday night’s show. Al Madrigal then chimed in that it’s “a solid opening offer — not a bad start, even if her historic immigration speech was delivered in what is clearly the adult circulation room of a public library. I guess she figured, ‘Hey, if this is a good enough place for homeless guys to masturbate in, it’s good enough for pandering to Latinos.’

“It just feels like we’ve been down this road before,” he continued, pointing to President Obama’s previous comments on the matter. “And what did we actually get? More deportations than ever before. What I’m saying, Democrats shouldn’t expect to get Latino support just because they say all the right things.”

Surprisingly, Madrigal went on to say that Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has a much better shot at earning the Latino vote:

So who is the leading Latino in the race? According to Madrigal, none other than Jeb Bush, or “El Jebe,” who is “a candidate for president who speaks fluent Spanish and has a Mexican wife who raised Mexican children and regularly eats Mexican food — and this man is a Republican.”

He continued, “Most candidates are scrambling to go after Latinos now, but Jeb Bush started his outreach program in 1974. He literally married into the demographic. His wife, Columba Bush, represents us all, Jon, and Jeb knows it. … Now, all he has to do is come up to the table with a meaningful path to citizenship and he might the one we’ve all been waiting for!”
