Eva Longoria Proves Its Time to Separate Politics & Entertainment
For some reason, MSNBC interviewed Eva Longoria about the 2020 Presidential Election.
In the interview, the former “Desperate Housewives” star claimed that Latina women were the “true” heroes of the election, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Twitter pounced on her with ferocity, and I’m here for it.
I have no idea why Ari Melber of MSNBC decided that Eva Longoria — an actress best known for her work on the long-canceled “Desperate Housewives” — was the person that needed to be consulted about President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
But regardless of Melber’s logic, the interview delivered a moment in which the actress was bound to get dragged by her over-processed roots.
With one sentence, she managed to erase the impact that Black women had on the presidential election.
That level of verbal gymnastics is, if nothing else, impressive — albeit for all the wrong reasons.
Naturally, the resultant level of dragging — the blood, filth, bone, and slander — forced her to backtrack in a weak-sauce apology.
But I’m here for every last ounce of it.
That Moment When Eva Longoria Stepped In It, Big Time
Just look at how Eva Longoria credits Latina women for putting President-elect Joe Biden in the video below.
According to the Americas-Society Council of the Americas (AS/COA), which dedicates its studies to the Hispanic diaspora in the United States, the Caribbean, and Canada, more Latinos — not less — voted for Trump in 2020 than they did in 2016. This is mostly due to the overwhelming Cuban-American support that Trump received.
It took almost no time for social media — specifically, Twitter — to jump on Eva Longoria and set the record straight. Many people compared Longoria to Dascha Polanco and Gina Rodriguez, two Latina women who made very prominent racist and anti-Black statements in the past.
