Hillary Stunt Turns Away Some Latino Voters

By Carla Sanchez

Hillary’s latest attempt at connecting with Latino voters has completely backfired, according to Twitter. The hash tag #NotMyAbuela surfaced soon after the Clinton campaign shared a list of all the “ways Hillary is just like your abuela.”

Latinos were not amused, criticizing the list as a poor way of reaching out to the Hispanic community. Many disagreed, hitting back that Hillary is nothing like a Hispanic grandmother, as she has been “privileged” and “rich” all her life. Here are some tweets:

Personally, I find it distasteful – she has no way of experiencing what Latinos or their grandparents go through (and have gone through) as minorities in the United States. What do you think? Let us know!
