Jill Biden Apologizes for Comparing Hispanic People to “Breakfast Tacos”

From a story on politico.com by Ari Hawkins headlined “Jill Biden apologizes for comparing Hispanic people to ‘breakfast tacos'”:

First Lady Jill Biden apologized Tuesday via a spokesperson for remarks she made a day earlier in San Antonio comparing the nation’s diverse Latino communities to cultural and culinary institutions from across the country.

The Latino community, Biden said, is “as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio.”

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists responded in a post to its Twitter account that “we are not tacos.”
