Donald Trump Faces Backlash After Cinco De Mayo Tweet

Cinco de Mayo is officially a holiday celebrating the triumph of the Mexican army at the Battle of Puebla, but for millions of Americans it's become an excuse to drink margaritas and dine on nachos. It turns out the presumptive Republican nominee for president is one of those millions of Americans.

How exactly did Donald Trump celebrate Cinco de Mayo? By sharing a photo of him eating a taco bowl in Trump Tower in New York City.

The tweet immediately set Twitter ablaze with speculation and reaction.

For starters, it appears the Trump Tower Grill doesn't actually serve taco bowls. It appears that Trump's Tex-Mex treat likely came from the Trump Café, which is offering "the best taco bowls" on Thursday as a "taco fiesta."

Another inquisitive journalistic also noticed that Trump is eating his bowl atop of a bikini-clad photo of Marla Maples, his ex-wife.

But what caught the attention of many social media users was Trump's declaration of love for Hispanics as if it somehow relates to his fondness for Tex-Mex cuisine on a day that commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over France.

Hillary Clinton, his likely Democratic rival in the general election, quickly jumped on the opportunity.

It's also worth noting that not everyone thinks the best tacos come from Trump Tower. In January, food critic Robert Sietsema ordered the "beef tacos" from Trump Grill and wrote that they "turned out to be a fried tortilla bowl heaped with romaine lettuce, grated yellow cheese, and plain ground beef that was so devoid of flavor, it rendered an insult to Mexicans every bit as profound as Trump's previous pronouncements. Trump food is bland food."

But the best part of the photo might just be all the amazing memes it quickly inspired:

@realDonaldTrump That taco bowl makes your hands look tiny.
I am 100% percent certain the phrase "Sombrero or no sombrero?" came up before taking that Trump taco bowl photo.
what media org will be the first to have someone eat and review a Trump Tower taco bowl on FBLive
I had to check twice to make sure that Trump eating a taco bowl saying “I love hispanics” wasn’t a parody account. Silly me.
How has nobody mentioned about Trump's taco bowl pic how big his little hands make that fork look? #TrumpHands #RubioWasRight
Thought this was a FAKE Twitter. How stupid&self-absorbed. Trump taco bowls is your Hispanic outreach? #GOP #moron
Nothing will get you the Hispanic vote like eating a taco bowl on Cinco de Mayo, Trump
BREAKING: After taco-bowl pic and assurance that he loves him, Trump's favorability among Latinos jumps to 78%
Because nothing says authentic Mexican food more than a Trump taco bowl! #CincoDeMayo
When Donald Trump loses the Hispanic vote by 80 points he's going to wonder "What more did they want? I took a picture with a taco bowl!"
Though I guess salient issue here is not quality of taco bowl, but GOP’s utter inability to court the nation's fastest-growing voting bloc.
Ohhhhhhhh the taco bowl is MADE out of Hispanics, now I get it
A taco bowl is just a taco with a big, beautiful wall around it.
yelling i love hispanics while eating a taco bowl is like saying i love women while throwing singles at a stripper
