I just have one question: why do Democrats think blatant pandering works on minorities?
First, we had “Hot Sauce Hillary” Clinton who told popular hip-hop radio show The Breakfast Club that she carries hot sauce in her purse everywhere she goes, quoting a popular Beyonce song in a desperate attempt to get the black vote. But guess what—she lost in 2016, so it turns out the hot sauce didn’t help.
Now, as of last night, we have Joe Biden dancing to a popular Spanglish dance hit in hopes of winning over Latinos, as if that is going to somehow make them vote for him instead of Trump.
During a Hispanic Heritage Month event in Kissimmee, Florida, Biden had maybe one of his most cringe-worthy moments ever. While on stage, Biden said, “I just have one thing to say…” and proceeded to play “Despacito” by Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee, and Luis Fonsi from his phone.

After bobbing his head around to the tune, he joked, “I tell you what, if I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be elected president by acclamation.”
I’m not even sure what he means by that.
Regardless, it’s insulting that Biden thinks playing a popular American Spanish song might sway the opinion of Hispanic voters.
This is the mistake of the Democrat party. They habitually treat minorities like they are not smart enough to think in terms of policy and agenda goals. They assume Hispanics and Blacks simply make uneducated decisions based on skin color or cultural relatability.
The only reason Biden even went to Florida is because new polls indicate the swing state’s high amount of potential Hispanic voters significantly favor President Trump, which makes Biden’s “Despacito” stunt even more baffling.
Hispanics who support Trump, who was demonized as being anti-Hispanic for building the border wall, are not going to be easily convinced to vote for Biden just because he danced to a Spanish song.
Hispanic Trump supporters understand what the president is doing for their communities, including accomplishments like opportunity zones and criminal justice reform. They also understand that Trump is the only person standing in the way of socialism – which many Hispanic immigrants fled in their home countries in the first place.
This is why a recent survey shows 66% of Venezuelan voters in Florida support Trump. They don’t want America to be run by a Maduro-like dictator who would inevitably bring poverty to this country.
Furthermore, Trump leads with Hispanic Floridians at 50%, which is 4% higher than Biden. If this plays out in the election, it will close a 15-point gap between Trump’s ratings with the group in 2016 versus his approval with them now. Going up from 35% to 50% is a massive improvement, and Biden playing “Despacito” shows his party is severely underestimating why so many are flocking to Trump.
But really all Biden’s pandering shows is the Democratic Party’s desperation for votes. They have no viable platform and, from what we’ve seen so far, no real plan for America if they win. At this point, they are basically handing the election to Trump who is already winning in every way against Joe Biden.
