One thing Americans do over summer holiday weekends is party. We barbeque or bring pot luck to the picnic.
This guy, who visited Joy Reid last night when she was filling in for Chris Hayes at All In seems not to understand, nor does Trump whom he was representing, that assimilation is a two-way street.
Immigrants quickly adopt American holidays, and Americans tend to be inclusive about immigrant contributions. Especially when it comes to food, Americans welcome a broad array of traditions.In case you missed the source of #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner → https://t.co/4vnpZY2cQw #inners #reiders— AM Joy w/Joy Reid (@amjoyshow) September 2, 2016
So when Marco Gutierrez, founder of the group Latinos for Trump, issued what he thought was a dire warning, Americans were all a-Twitter with the hashtag #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner. They were most creative!
#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner? Some Americans think that actually sounds pretty delicious. https://t.co/ZCVCPpeTci pic.twitter.com/jixleBC64s— CNN International (@cnni) September 2, 2016

Democrats hopped on the taco truck with gusto! Forthwith, there was a taco truck parked outside Trump's Colorado headquarters serving lunch and registering voters.#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner I am seriously excited about this and think it will solve even bigger issues. pic.twitter.com/UcpgLlbuiJ— Yuge Ass Tortoise (@Tyler_Tortoise) September 2, 2016

Hillary's Brooklyn HQ joined in - all fired up!So @coloradodems sent a taco truck to @TrumpForCO's headquarters today... #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner pic.twitter.com/Ku3Fjzuq9u— Han Nguyen (@hanseldee) September 2, 2016
positive all the way around, for the country and the economy.
Whatever apocalyptic visions Gutierrez sought to communicate, Americans on Twitter embraced the concept and even a few tweets from the UK and the Netherlands bespoke a desire for a candidate who would bring taco trucks to London and Amsterdam, Brexit notwithstanding.
The most popular comment was, "Dude, you said that like it was a bad thing!" So far, no one has figured out what was supposed to be so awful. Seems impossible to find anyone who isn't down with #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner.
¡Sí se puede! We are so there! As opposed to this at Beau's (apparently a sandwich tractor).@HillaryClinton & @BarackObama are ready for #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner. Are you? Join HFA: https://t.co/W851KIxs38 pic.twitter.com/fKEA7PvbJW— Sebastian Halliwell (@S_Halliwell) September 3, 2016
One thing is for certain. There is broad agreement in the Democratic ranks that November 8, 2016 will be #TacoTuesday!Like #Trump himself, an unappetizing choice that lacks any appeal. Let's have tacos instead #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner pic.twitter.com/OXWcUi3yTK— Justin Joshua Valero (@ItsJustinValero) September 3, 2016
On a serious note, if you are facing the storm this weekend, we pray you stay safe. I can say this. When Superstorm Sandy blew my house to pieces, the contractor who had scaffolding up within days was Mexican. I did not ask to see his documents before he started closing up my poor, damaged home. I didn't care. My insurance company didn't care, and my town officials didn't care either. I hope no one has that kind of weekend.
Wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day weekend. Enjoy the hamburgers, hot dogs, pizzas, falafels, Korean BBQ, sushi, kebabs, French fries, General Tso's,and tacos. Who's bringing the guacamole? The sangria is on me! Pour yourself a nice frosty margarita or cerveza and join the fun here >>>>
