For the life of me I don't understand that tweet. Is she saying that she thinks some mexicans look mongolian and because of that she opens the conversation in english only to discover to her frustration that they are mexican and she just wasted a whole sentence that she could have otherwise said in spanish? And that she is easily confused by appearance and assumes many mexicans are mongolian?

That can't be it, right?

What I got out of that tweet is that she is a complete and utter moron.

Living in a state that is about 40% Hispanic, I naturally assume that the darker-skinned people I meet are Mongolians, then get angry that their English - their second or possibly third language - is not as flawless as a native speaker who has only ever learned one language.

Whenever a Republican pulls out some party of Lincoln crap, I'm going to say "sweet, let's get back to that"

(also, I know this is shortly after Lincoln)
