Hillary Clinton stuck her foot in her mouth while attempting to take a shot at Donald Trump.
Trump received a firestorm of backlash from the easily offended left after he tweeted a photo of himself eating a taco bowl Thursday with the caption “I love Hispanics.”
A Tweet which, as he told Fox & Friends, was wildly successful.

Clinton did her best to capitalize on it by releasing a video that showed Trump saying he wanted to deport illegal aliens and insinuated that was proof that he doesn’t like Hispanics.
“I love Hispanics!” —Trump, 52 minutes ago https://t.co/b9mv7nUduN
“They’re gonna be deported.” —Trump, yesterday https://t.co/HzFWUT1XFl

Apparently she didn’t realize how offensive that would be to the overwhelming majority of Hispanics in America who are in the nation legally.
Social media did not let it slide.

@HillaryClinton did you just equate Hispanics to illegal immigrants? What a racist thing to say Killary. Illegal is a crime. Not a race.

@HillaryClinton Hispanics should be pretty offended that Hillary can’t tell the difference between aliens and ones here legally.

@HillaryClinton I’m Hispanic and it’s pretty offensive how you take us for idiots incapable of understanding why deportation should happen.

It’s not the first time Clinton has stepped in it while making a futile attempt to attack Trump this week.
On Thursday she released a video listing all of the things Trump will do if elected president and all it did was reinforce the reasons people voted for him to begin with.
