Donald Trump found love in a hopeless place, and he’s milking it for all it’s worth. On Thursday (Oct. 8), the presidential hopeful held a campaign event in Nevada, where he randomly selected a Latina from the audience up to the podium. What happened next was, well, hella cringe-worthy and creepy as hell.
“I’m Hispanic, and I vote for Mr. Trump. We vote for Mr. Trump!” she exclaimed, arms flailing. “We lub you, we lub you, all the way to the White House.” Trump wore his signature crooked grin as he kissed the lady’s forehead and held on to her hips (gross).
In an interview with CNN, the supporter, later identified as Myriam Witcher, claimed that she had only met Trump “in her dreams” (c’mon son, really?). In another interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Witcher explained her reasoning behind her ecstatic outcry in support of Trump.
“He needs to send illegal [immigrants] out of the country. I came here legally,” she told the Sun, “I’m Hispanic, Latina and I love me some Trump.”
While Trump’s constituents appreciate the supportive gesture, the business tycoon has a lot more to do in order to win over the Latino vote. According to NPR, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo survey found nearly three in four Latinos say they still have a negative view of him (ya don’t say?).
