Friday Open Thread: Musing on Taco Bowls

The tweet by Donald Trump depicting him eating a taco bowl in his office (made at Trump Tower Grill) and proclaiming his love of Hispanics in celebration of Cinco del Mayo is hilarious. It's been retweeted 73,000 times as of now, and "liked" by 85,000 people. (There's no dislike number, which for all we know, could be in the hundreds of thousands.

I think his account was hacked. Even he's not stupid enough to think anyone would believe he loves Hispanics or would eat that Taco bowl. I don't even believe he eats food from a restaurant in his building. Do you really think he doesn't have a private chef?

Best response I've seen so far: "Can we have the taco bowl for President instead of Trump?" [More...]

Hat tip to a tweeter named Benny Johnson who noticed that Trump's Taco bowl is sitting on a bikini-clad photo of his ex-wife Marla Maples, taken by Getty Images in Florida in March, 1985. See the lower right of corner of Trump's tweeted photo. Here's the Getty Image, which I just got at their website:

I wonder why Donald's credenza drawer is open. And what's in it. Looks like a pack of Marlboros but he doesn't smoke. And who is the woman on the right in the photo on the floor? It looks she has a blond bun. Is it Ivana Trump?

The "taco bowl" he's eating is supremely unhealthy, loaded with lard, fat and calories. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday, not a "Hispanic" holiday. It's also not on the menu for the Trump Grill. And Trump has placed it in a dish with walls. This just has to be a joke or a hack, no?

Trump is going to supply us with endless laughs between now and November, but I doubt they will translate into votes. He's an entertainer, not a leader. I won't be surprised if Republican voter turnout in November is the lowest in history, or he gets the least number of votes for President of any major party candidate period.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
