“I’m just really glad that I got the chance to remind his supporters that his language has been really unsettling with a large group of people in America,” Cardelle added. “We’re really hurt and offended.”
“As Hispanic women, we see how Trump’s hate speech has emboldened people to be racist towards Latinos and people of color in general,” she said. “What Donald Trump has been doing is making people think that it’s alright to treat us as if we’re worse than they are.”
Annie Cardelle said she felt proud of her fashion-forward Trump protest.
Ceci Cardelle said she’s been repulsed by Trump’s frequent attacks on Hispanics.
To the sisters’ surprise, the Trumps’ minders seemed oblivious to the handmade shirt.
“There was a good three people around them looking everyone up and down,” Annie Cardelle said.
“I don’t know if they were in a daze or completely oblivious to what my shirt said.”
Both sisters managed to worm their way to the front of the line of people waiting for pictures with Eric Trump and his wife Lara.
“We thought someone was going to say, ‘Get out of here. Leave,’” Annie Cardelle told the Daily News.
“No one asked about it. No one noticed.”
Cardelle and her sister Ceci, 17, waded into enemy territory at the Friday night rally in Salisbury to protest Trump’s hate-filled language.
None of the 200 Trump cheerleaders packed into Thelma’s Down Home Country Cooking seemed to notice the not-so-subtly dressed demonstrator in their midst.
Looks like Eric Trump has a muy mal understanding of Spanish.
The Donald’s middle son was played for a fool at a North Carolina rally when he posed for a photo with a young woman wearing a “Latinas Contra Trump” shirt.
“No one at the rally realized my shirt said AGAINST tr*mp,” a giddy Annie Cardelle, 23, tweeted along with the photo.
“Congrats, y’all played yourselves.”
