Daily Show Tortures Pinata To Cope With Trump Leading Latino Vote

Actor and alleged comedian John Leguizamo joined Tuesday’s edition of The Daily Show on Comedy Central to have a calm and rational, adult-like reaction to polling that shows Donald Trump leading among Latinos. Just kidding, he decided to torture a piñata while going off a profanity-ridden Spanish tirade.

Translated into English (hat tip to NewsBusters’ Jorge Bonilla), as he mauled the poor piñata, Leguizamo ranted, “Shit, [bleep]dammit, triple son of a [bleep], mother[bleep], [unintelligible] bastard!”

After the torture session concluded, Leguizamo continued, “I’m sorry. Where was I? Oh, yeah, right. It looks like the Democrats are in trouble, and you might be thinking, how is this possible? Donald Trump is winning Latinos? ‘Build the wall’ Donald Trump? ‘Mass deportations’ Donald Trump? Guy who thinks Daddy Yankee is a baseball player Donald Trump? But the truth is, in 2024, Latino voters have something else on their minds.

Following a couple of news clips explaining that Latino voters are more worried about inflation than his race-based politics, Leguizamo claimed to understand, “That’s right. For Latinos, this election is all about inflation! And that makes sense! Inflation is bad right now. They’re going to have to change the name of the game show to The Price is [bleep] what-now?” And if your top concern is high prices, I get why you might lean Trump. People associate him with lower prices, even though he sells $400 sneakers that look like my cousin’s Papo’s teeth.”

However, “The problem is, when it comes to fixing inflation, this cuchifrito-looking mother[bleep] ain’t got shit.”

After more news clips of Trump declaring his plan to reduce inflation includes additional oil drilling, Leguizamo reacted, “Well, you heard it here first, mi brothers: Trump’s one and only plan to fix inflation is to drill for oil. But guess what: President Biden is already drilling more oil than anyone in history. More than Trump did when he was president!”

Of course, Biden is also trying to appease the environmentalists, which doesn’t help with prices, but Leguizamo would rather make a Stormy Daniels-sex joke than discuss that, “Now, you know, maybe Trump has discovered some new special drilling technique that no one else knows about. Maybe he drills the oil real hard for 30 seconds, and then makes it sign an NDA. Just saying.”

Somehow, it seems unlikely that going full Hulk on a party device and sex jokes are going to get people to change their voting preferences.

Here is a transcript for the April 16 show:

JOHN LEGUIZAMO: Excuse me for a second, please. [Speaking Spanish] I’m sorry. Where was I? Oh, yeah, right. It looks like the Democrats are in trouble, and you might be thinking, how is this possible? Donald Trump is winning Latinos? ”Build the wall” Donald Trump? ”Mass deportations” Donald Trump? Guy who thinks Daddy Yankee is a baseball player Donald Trump? But the truth is, in 2024, Latino voters have something else on their minds. 

That’s right. For Latinos, this election is all about inflation! And that makes sense! Inflation is bad right now. They’re going to have to change the name of the game show to The Price is [bleep] what-now?” And if your top concern is high prices, I get why you might lean Trump. People associate him with lower prices, even though he sells $400 sneakers that look like my cousin’s Papo’s teeth. The problem is, when it comes to fixing inflation, this cuchifrito-looking mother[bleep] ain’t got shit. 

CNN TOWN HALL ATTENDEE: If elected president again, what is the first thing you would do to help bring down the cost to make things more affordable? 

DONALD TRUMP: Drill, baby, drill. 

MARIA BARTIROMO: Is your answer to getting inflation down, drill, drill, drill, independent oil? 

TRUMP: Well, among other things, it’s drill, drill, drill, yes. 

BARTIROMO: What else? 

TRUMP: It’s drill, drill, drill. 

BARTIROMO: What’s your answer to getting inflation down? 

TRUMP: There is no else. You have to get the oil. 

LEGUIZAMO: Well, you heard it here first, mi brothers: Trump’s one and only plan to fix inflation is to drill for oil. But guess what: President Biden is already drilling more oil than anyone in history. More than Trump did when he was president! Now, you know, maybe Trump has discovered some new special drilling technique that no one else knows about. Maybe he drills the oil real hard for 30 seconds, and then makes it sign an NDA. Just saying.
