New TX Rep. Mayra Flores serves up spicy ‘Taco Inflation’ meme to Jill Biden

U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores served up a spicy reminder to first lady Jill Biden that the crushing inflation that has taken root during her husband’s disastrous presidency is inflicting pain on family budgets and greatly affected the ability to put food on the table by tweeting out a piping hot ‘Taco Inflation’ meme.

The Texas Republican, whose victory in a deep blue district in a special election last month was seen by many as a bellwether for the rapidly approaching midterm elections, broke it down to show the additional amount that it costs to put together a taco with inflation at the highest level in four decades, according to the latest government data which showed a stunning 9.1 percent inflation in June, a major drag on Democrat hopes to extend their one-party rule.

Flores’ meme also included the words “Tacos are unique, ingredients may vary,” a jab at Dr. Jill who was hammered by critics after she likened Hispanics to breakfast tacos during a speech in San Antonio, intending to pander to the key demographic but managing to insult tens of millions of people instead.

According to the congresswoman’s tweet, cheese is up 8.7 percent, lettuce 11.4 percent, tortillas 12.8 percent, and meat up an eye-popping 17.4 percent.

The flubbed remarks by the FLOTUS took place at Monday’s 2022 UnidosUS Annual Conference, formerly known as the National Council of La Raza where, during remarks praising UnidosUS President and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Raul Yzaguirre, Biden badly mispronounced the word “bodegas” and delved into racial tropes with her comparison of Hispanics to the ethnic food item.

“Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength,” Mrs. Biden said to the stunned audience.

Biden indirectly apologized after her peculiar remarks ignited a firestorm with her spokesman Michael LaRosa taking to Twitter, “The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,”

But Republicans like Flores – the first Mexican-born woman to be elected to Congress – aren’t about to let her off the hook.

Twitter users reacted to Rep. Flores’ delicious trolling of Mrs. Biden.

Flores also took a swipe at Mrs. Biden in another tweet this week.

“US inflation hit 9.1% over the past year; early polls indicate more breakfast tacos are leaning Republican,” she wrote.

She appeared on Fox News where she said of Democrats, “They think that by giving us tacos and by playing Latin music that that’s all it’s going to take for us to vote for them in November- it’s going to take a lot more than that.”
