OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


First lady Jill Biden, the wife of President Joe Biden, was shredded on Twitter after comparing the uniqueness of Hispanic Americans to breakfast tacos.

And that was after she was ridiculed for attending and event with the word Latinx in its title, a word that it has been shown is not one that Hispanic people typically identify with.

She also butchered the word bodegas and mispronounced it is bogedas.

“[Raul Yzaguirre] helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bogedas 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 said.

The ridicule came immediately.

“Once again, Dr. Jill Biden butchers the Spanish language in furtherance of pandering to a client constituency (the org FKA National Council of La Raza). I hereby bless your timelines with Dr. Jill’s rendering of ‘bodega,’” Jorge Bonilla of the Media Research Center said.

“Imagine the regime media meltdown if a conservative called Hispanics ‘breakfast tacos’ like Dr. Jill Biden did at the Latinx Luncheon today. Democringe,” Christina Pushaw said.

“Liberal privilege is Jill Biden telling a group of hispanic people that they’re “as diverse as breakfast tacos” and not being canceled for it,” Tim Young said.

“From the same family that brought you, ‘I don’t want my kids growing up in a ‘racial jungle’ …and ‘You can’t go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent’ …comes today’s hot new racist hit, ‘Hispanics are as diverse as breakfast tacos,” he said.

“The president was asked about his son arguing with a hooker over how much crack he had after he incorrectly placed a mass shooting 100 years in the past as his wife giggled to herself celebrating the Hispanic contribution of breakfast tacos and the media will still shout ‘TRUMP!’” Chad Felix Greene  said.

“If Jill Biden is going to compare Hispanic Americans to breakfast tacos then she could at least use more inclusive language: It’s ‘TacX,’ Jill,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw said.

“So… Jill Biden just said Latinos are as unique as breakfast tacos and the ‘Bogedas’ of the Bronx. Whatever Joe has, it appears contagious,” Cabot Phillips said.

“The First Lady thinks Hispanics are as unique as… breakfast tacos. Maybe that’s true of ‘Latinx’ people, but for real Hispanics, that’s actually kind of insulting,” Rep. Carlos Gimenez said.

“Jill Biden just said Hispanics are as ‘unique’ as tacos. This isn’t Veep. Which White House speechwriter just won a bet for getting the First Lady to say something like this?” Steve Guest said.

The luncheon, which is part of the 2022 UnidosUS Annual Conference, provides “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,” according to the event website.

Jill Biden’s speech at the Latinx IncluXion Luncheon will take place at 1PM and will immediately be followed by a panel titled, “A Powerful Case for Equity,” featuring two speakers from the Biden administration and Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

“Equity in education is the foundation for equity in every other sector,” the panel description reads. “As the pandemic and the Uvalde massacre have underscored the need for culturally and linguistically competent health responses, the nation’s leaders join us to chart the path forward for Latino children and families.”

“It was an honor to spread the conservative message in the Latino community at Unidos in San Antonio today,” Hutchinson said in a statement provided to Fox News Digital. “We discussed border security, the rule of law, and strengthening our education system. I appreciate these hardworking leaders who contribute to the American Story.”
