Donald Trump Gets Roasted in Latino Comedy Troupe's Viral 'I Won't Vote for You' Parody
While many artists and organizations are responding to Donald Trump’s anti-Latino rhetoric with outrage, one group of socially conscious Latinos are using a weapon that should never be underestimated: comedy.
Produced by New York-based comedy troupe Room 28 and nonprofit organization Voto Latino Action Network, “I Won’t Vote for You” samples rapper Big Sean’s smash “I Don’t F--- With You” for a hilarious, hip-hop-style roast aimed at Trump.
The video opens with a Trump look-alike (played by actor Jacob Berger) making his way through a fancy building and passing by Latino workers who shake their heads in disapproval, as audio of Trump’s infamous speech calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers plays in the background. When “Trump” gets into a chauffeured SUV, one of the presidential candidate’s most presumptuous soundbites can be heard: “I’ll tell you something, if I get the nomination, I’ll win the Latino vote.”
That’s when Trump’s Dominican driver Elmo DiFoca (played by director, comedian and hip-hop artist Jerry Diaz) launches into the parody “I Won’t Vote for You.” The video’s takeaway is as catchy as the song’s hook: “There’s millions of Latino voices/ Trump, you’re through/ ‘Cause we ain’t voting for you!”
