This Hateful Star Sneers: ‘Latin People for’ GOP Is Like ‘Roaches for Raid’



Friday’s Real Time With Bill Maher showcased the liberal hate fest the HBO series has become known for. But in addition to sliming Any Coney Barrett’s religious faith as “nuts,” host Bill Maher brought on TV and movie actor John Leguizamo to slime Latinos who may vote for Donald Trump. 

Maher wondered, “There was an article I saw on the paper this week and I thought this was trading on stereotypes that said Trump is doing rather well with young Latino men because of the machismo factor.” 

The John Wick actor sneered, “Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid. Let’s just get real.” 

 

 

Here’s his full smear: 

Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid. Let’s just get real. I just feel like there’s a level of self-hate or just a lack of care of the rest of your Latin brothers and sisters who are in cages, who are being demonized by this P resident. I mean, hate crimes against Latin people are way up and how can you not —  23 people were shot in El Paso just for being Latin and you don’t care? So you are going to vote for this braggadocio president?  I feel like it’s self hating and selfish. 

In other words, how dare Republican Latinos even exist? Later, in an effort to suck up to atheist Maher, Leguizamo cheered, “I’m a godless communist like yourself.” 

Leguizamo in 2019 offered this bizarre take on Trump, saying that the President makes him “horny” with rage: “He makes me so angry, he makes me horny…. You know when you’ve got all this rage in your body and it turns into testosterone and you gotta let it out somehow? Love trumps hate.”

BILL MAHER: There was an article I saw on the paper this week and I thought this was trading on stereotypes that said Trump is doing rather well with young Latino men because of the machismo factor. I see you shaking your head, is it bad to say? 

JOHN LEGUIZAMO:  Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid. Let’s just get real. I just feel like there’s a level of self-hate or just a lack of care of the rest of your Latin brothers and sisters who are in cages, who are being demonized by this P resident. I mean, hate crimes against Latin people are way up and how can you not —  23 people were shot in El Paso just for being Latin and you don’t care? So you are going to vote for this braggadocio president?  I feel like it’s self hating and selfish. 

MAHER: What do you think about the scare tactics that Trump is using. I mean, he is talking about Biden is going to tear down statues of the virgin Mary and that he’s a communist and he’s got all these buzzwords that I assume are used the try to scare that community in voting his way. 

LEGUIZAMO: He is clever. He is clever. I mean, they are micro-targeting Latin people in Arizona through What’sApp and they know they are all on What’sApp. And they are spreading this stuff that Biden is about to steal the Virgin Mary. First off, he’s a Super Catholic. I’m a godless communist like yourself, but is he going to be like the grinch with the big bag stealing the Virgin Mary? Who is going to carry those heavy ass statues. Taking the virgin Mary. And in Florida they are going after Colombians telling them that if you vote for Biden he’s a socialist and he’s going to turn Columbia into Venezuela because they know we have 400,000 registered Colombians in Florida that could help flip it to Biden. They’re really clever, insidious but we are working, we’re going to figure them out and blow out all that B.S.
