Your Latino presidential update today is kind of sad. Yesterday we reported that GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich thinks Spanish is “the language of the ghetto,” and today we report that Hermain Cain is not even sure what language Latinos speak.
Cain has been leading the pack of GOP candidates on and off lately, and yesterday in Miami while at a campaign stop to try Cuban coffee and pastries in Little Havana in Miami, he asked a throng of media and onlookers, “How do you say ‘delicious’ in Cuban?”
Lucky for Cain, someone immediately answered, “delicioso,” otherwise he might have had to realize that Cubans, like most of the other Latinos in the country, speak Spanish and that Cuban isn’t an actual language.
Here’s the video, the comment in question is around second 58:
