    Oi! Don’t be calling George Norwegian. We don’t deserve that! Call him a Marsian, so no one on Earth need be shamed for having birthed him.

    I’d like to say we’re sorry in the name of all Brazilians

    I have a radio program in Spanish and use the letter “u” to include all genders.

    I’m Australian and I wasn’t sure either I just love the skin colour.

    I thought Santos was spawned from the ground by dark magic like an Uruk-Hai.

    Such nonsense. Do you call Anglos people from any English speaking country and then add to that a specific ethnicity just because of the language? Thought so.

    I mean, who the fuck knows where George Santos really comes from. Or if that’s even his real name. He might as well be a Norwegian called Erik Bjorgeson, how would we know?.

    As long as it’s not Latinx which no one knows what it is outside the US nobody gives a shit Latino, Hispanic have at it.

  • Like Bot 6 months ago

    No. Not Norwegian. Maybe Danish? There is something rotten in the state of Denmark.

  • TagusMan 6 months ago

    Latino? The transphobia on this show is out of control.

    Si se puede!

  • Brittany 6 months ago

    I’m Puerto Rican and mostly use Hispanic or Latino but never both nor have I used Latinx. Not every Spanish speaking country is Hispanic or Latino and think Spain and Portugal are Spanish. I’m confused about the Haitian part.

    Other acceptable answers for George Santos:
    – a liar and a thief (allegedly)
    -is potato
    -3 raccoons in a people suit

    This was a good segment and Felipe handled himself well. Giving him such a warm greeting just for being Hispanic is so fake though. You don’t know him, he hasn’t done anything special, and being of a certain race isn’t in itself something to celebrate. We get mad at maga for their fake bs…. let’s not do it ourselves.

    Don’t call us latinx
    Thats like saying the n word (nigger)

  • Songfugel 6 months ago

    I am not Norwegian, so naturally I would like to take offense on behalf of the Norwegians and pass the Santos baton to France

  • WTF? 6 months ago

    🤣🤣 Antonio Banderas in Puss in Boots? No… a cat. That one really got me.

    Hispanics are Spanish speaking. Lationos include Hispanics as well as other latin-based laguage speakers – i.e. Portuguese and French. Hence people from Quebec are Latinos.
