Actor and comedian John Leguizamo attacked the group ‘Latinos for Trump’ on the Bill Maher show Friday.
Lequizamo compared Latinos who support Trump to Roaches supporting Raid.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid,” responded the actor, as reported by Newsbusters. “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 President. 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.”
Leguizamo went on to credit Republicans for being “clever” with their attacks on Biden by characterizing him as a socialist who will turn the United States into Venezuela.

“They are spreading this stuff that Biden is about to steal the Virgin Mary. First off, he’s a Super Catholic,” said Leguizamo. “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.”
John Leguizamo has been outspoken about Latin American identity in recent days. Last month, he boycotted the Emmy Awards due to a lack of “Latinx” representation.
