America (Ferrera) Trumps Trump

It was only a matter of time until someone expressed a thoughtful, beyond-personal opinion on Donald Trump’s self-made brouhaha.

And that person was America Ferrera.

The Emmy-winning actress wrote an open letter that The Huffington Post published yesterday, in which she thanked Trump for his racist remarks about Mexicans and Latinos in general, for “Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric.

“You, Mr. Trump, are living in an outdated fantasy of a bigoted America.

“You may not reduce [Latinos] to drug dealers and rapists. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters. We are valedictorians and honor students. We are college graduates, bankers, police officers, entertainers, teachers, journalists, politicians and we are the future of America.

Snap! And well put.
