'It's like eating a watermelon and saying, 'I love African-Americans': Jeb Bush shames Donald Trump for taco-bowl tweet
"First, not all Hispanics are Mexican," he added, according to a translation provided to The Huffington Post. "Secondly, not all Hispanics eat tacos. Thirdly, showing your sensitivity by eating an American dish is the most insensitive thing you can do. Fourthly, to say this, next to all things he already said, is a further insult.""It's like eating a watermelon and saying, 'I love African-Americans,'" Bush added.
Earlier this month, Trump stirred the pot by tweeting a photo of a taco bowl he was eating for Cinco de Mayo.
"I love Hispanics!" he added in the tweet, which has accumulated nearly 85,000 retweets and more than 110,000 likes in the nearly two weeks since it was posted.
Trump also opined in the tweet: "The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill."
"And you know what, I mean, I'm going to do great with the Hispanics," he added..
Bush added in the interview with NRC that he isn't planning on voting for either Trump or Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. The former Florida governor had early and often contentious back-and-forth bouts with Trump on the campaign trail.
