In light of all this talk about GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump being a sleazebag to women, it was refreshing to watch "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah dredge up The Donald's Cinco de Mayo taco bowl blunder from a simpler time before John Miller-gate.

Noah brought out Senior Latina Contributor Eliza Cossio to determine why Trump, the now-figurehead of a party that gravely needs to court Hispanics if they want to take over the White House.


Asked how she felt about Trump's recently becoming the presumptive GOP nominee, Cossio said, "Speaking as a Latina, bad. But speaking as an American, very bad."

"With Trump as the nominee, the Democrats don't have to work for our vote," Cossio continued. Which is a missed opportunity, because, "I think Trump has a lot of potential with Latino voters. I mean, he's basically a 'Telenovela' character come to life."
