First Lady Dr. Jill Biden had an unusual analogy to share during a “Latinx” luncheon she attended in San Antonio on Monday, saying the Latino community is as “unique” as “breakfast tacos.”
“Raul [Yzaguirre] 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,” she awkwardly said, mispronouncing bodegas in the process.
The nonprofit group sponsoring the event, “UnidosUS,” wrote a statement about the gathering on its website saying, “Join us for our first in-person UnidosUS Annual Conference in two years, Siempre Adelante: Our Quest for Equity in San Antonio, Texas.”
The statement continued, “Community and business leaders, young advocates, and allies from across the country and all walks of life will come together to tackle topics that affect the more than 62 million Latinos across the country.”
The group added, “You’ll have the opportunity to learn about and collaborate on issues ranging from housing to health, racial equity to education, diversity and inclusion to owning our narrative as a community, and more.”
The First Lady’s comments come as her husband, President Joe Biden, remains underwater with voters after a New York Times/Siena poll released on Monday showed his approval rating dipping down to just 33 percent.

Several factors have contributed to his low approval, including poor image and public relations with regard to Biden’s age, along with how he handles questions in public when he becomes confused or difficult to understand.
In addition, Biden is still struggling against a southern borer crisis, rising gas prices, inflation, a bad financial market, and several high-profile Supreme Court setbacks — all ahead of a midterm election that is fast approaching.
Jill Bidens’ bizarre statement will only add fuel to an already raging fire.
