Because her parents hail from Honduras, and because she has an IQ over 13, one would think America Ferrera would have some very mean things to say about Donald Trump.
This is a man, after all, who recently said immigrants are coming to this country to do drugs and to rape our citizens.
But Ferrera has taken a different approach when considering Trump's recent words and actions... and it's pretty darn awesome.
“Dear Donald,” Ferrera wrote as a piece for HuffPost Latino Voices, addressing Trump directly.
“You’ve said some pretty offensive things about Latino immigrants recently, and I think they’re worth addressing.
Because, you know, this is the United States of America, where I have the right to speak up even if I’m not a billionaire. Isn’t that awesome?”
So... did Ferrera go on to slam Trump the way so many celebrities (such as Cher) have before her?
Nope. She went on to thank Trump for basically taking himself out of the Presidential running in 2016.
“Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric,” the actress explained.
“You are running for President in a country where the Latino population grew by over 49 percent from 2000-2012, while the rest of the country grew by 5.8 percent.”
Whoa there, America. Take it easy.
Donald Trump is not one to fully grasp the concept of numbers, unless they serve his own narrative.
In case he doesn't understand her point, however, Ferrera went on to make it very clear:
“I hope by now you understand that without the Latino vote, there is no chance of you ever winning this election.”
Sadly, of course, Trump is currently running second among all Republican hopefuls.
It's not completely out of the realm of possibility that he wins the Republication nomination at least. Which may be the most depressing thing we've ever written.
Ferrera then wrapped up her speech by quoting Trump's own words back to him:
“No, Mr. Trump, you may not reduce us to drug dealers and rapists. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters. We are valedictorians and honor students.
We are college graduates, bankers, police officers, entertainers, teachers, journalists, politicians and we are the future of America.”
In light of his immigration comments, Trump has been fired by Macy's and has had his relationship with NBC severed by the network.
Not that any of this is stopping him from doubling down on his beliefs, as proven below:
