CNN commentator and Donald Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes was not happy with the Spanish she heard coming out of Hillary Clinton’s new vice presidential pick’s mouth at a rally in south Florida Saturday.
Former Virginia governor Tim Kaine was named Friday as Clinton’s running mate and the campaign touted his time as a missionary in Honduras where he learned to speak fluent Spanish.
“I appreciating him having multi-cultural and speaking Spanish, I think that’s a great idea,” Nell Hughes said. “And we can all bring out our languages. Melania can come out and speak her five different languages as well, but what Mr. Trump did, he spoke in a language that all Americans can understand. That is English!”
Nell Hughes went on to say that Trump’s English is “one good thing” she experienced at the Republican National Convention this past week. “I didn’t have to get a translator for anything that was going on at the RNC this week. And I’m hoping I’m not gonna have to start brushing up back on my ‘Dora the Explorer’ to understand some of the speeches given this week.”
She claimed Kaine’s Spanish was what stuck out to her the most.
Nell Hughes has been mocked mercilessly on Saturday Night Live after taking the spot on CNN. “As a woman I like Donald Trump, but as a full-blown nutjob, I friggin’ love him!” said Cecily Strong as Hughes.

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
