    Trumpís Audience In Michigan Didnít Boo His Mention Of Hispanics

    Trumpís Audience In Michigan Didnít Boo His Mention Of Hispanics

    JOHN SEXTONPosted at 3:01 pm on May 1, 2018




    Yesterday the Washington Post published a piece decrying the tone of political speech on both sides of the aisle. After criticizing Michelle Wolfís comedy stylings at the White House Correspondentís Dinner, author Michael Gerson turned to Trumpís speech in Michigan:


    In Washington, Mich., President Trump gave an 80-minute speech in a stream-of-semiconsciousness style that mixed narcissism, nativism, ignorance, mendacity and malice. He attacked the FBI, intelligence agencies, the Justice Department and his presidential predecessors. ďAny Hispanics in the room? Ē he asked at one point, producing some boos.


    That link goes to this tweet by a writer for Think Progress who claimed people booed Trumpís mention of Hispanics:

    LOL Trump talks about America like a hit single, claims "we are at the top of the charts." Also claims that the country would've had "a negative GDP" if he hadn't been elected. pic.twitter.com/xv1gRtDDZM

    TRUMP: Are there any Hispanics in the room?

    TRUMP: Not so many? That's okay... and in fairness, Kanye West gets it! pic.twitter.com/CegLcNzDXy

    The problem with that version of events is that it isnít supported by the video itself. What I hear is a relatively small number of people cheering, followed by some shouts and whistles. And Iím not the only one. HuffPost wrote a piece about Trumpís mention of Hispanics which included the tweet above. Hereís how it opens [emphasis added]:

    President Donald Trump was met with silence at a campaign-style rally in Michigan Saturday night when he asked if there were any Hispanics present, then repeated his demand for a border wall.


    HuffPost doesnít get it right either. You can hear some cheering in response, but the HuffPost reporter who wrote this story obviously read the tweet above and then contradicted the claim about booing, which should tell you something.

    Esquire also wrote a story about the speech which included the same tweet but followed the tweet with this partial correction: ďThe crowd does not exactly boo at the mention of ĎHispanicsíóthereís some, but itís more whistling.Ē Esquire also doesnít think booing was the response, though they claim there was some. Plenty of regular people on Twitter also said they couldnít hear any booing:

    I was ready to quote this tweet and call Trump a racist, and then I watched the video. People didnít boo, they cheered both times he mentioned the improved unemployment rate. Maybe we heard differently, but I think this manipulated message does no favours.

    I definitely didnít here booing. I believe it was ďthe HispanicsĒ cheering to respond to his inquiry. It makes sense that there wasnít enough to make it sound like a roaring audience, especially given the location...

    In any case, the broader context of this callout to Hispanics was that Trump was celebrating historic low unemployment levels among black and Hispanic Americans. The crowd clearly cheered and applauded for both announcements. Hereís a fuller video of the speech queued up to his mention of unemployment. Again, I donít hear booing, I hear some cheering and some whistling in response to Trumpís question. There is some booing not long after when Trump mentions Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow voting against the GOP tax cut. So jump to 43:00 if you want to hear what booing sounds like.

    Think Progress flat out lied to make the false allegation Trump's supporters are anti Hispanic racists.

    Nobody booed Hispanics at the Trump rally.
