Two Latina Sisters Trolled Eric Trump on the Campaign Trail in the Best Way Possible
Donald Trump loves to talk about how much he loves "the Latinos" but that "appreciation" apparently doesn't extend to actually learning Spanish, as sisters Annie and Ceci Cardelle can attest. These two new American treasures (and Hillary supporters) heard Eric Trump was campaigning for his dad in their town of Salisbury, North Carolina, and decided to show their displeasure on their shirts, on which they wrote in black sharpie, "Latinas Contra Trump." The pair, who are second-generation Cuban-Americans, told Buzzfeed that they " were protesting [the Trump campaign's] particular treatment of Hispanics and Latino immigrants in this country.”
A direct protest (the statement translates to Latinas Against Trump) was brilliantly turned into a subtle troll when the sisters attended the younger Trump's speech and received nary a negative comment from other attendees. In fact, they were able to listen to the entire speech, and even pose for a picture with Eric Trump because apparently neither he, nor anyone in the audience realized that contra means against. In fact, the Cardelles said, "There were a ton of positive reactions and people commending us for our bravery.”
The best part came when the sisters were invited to take a picture with Trump and his wife, Lara. A reporter at the event suggested they get in the picture line, and despite handlers examining all of the picture hopefuls, the sisters were easily asked to come forward. The joke was on Eric Trump when the photo, below, went viral. The fact that no one noticed the shirts is yet another example of the lack of diversity among Trump's camp. Annie Cardelle put it best in her tweet though: "congrats, y'all played yourselves.
