On Monday, during the advocacy of Donald Trump for New York City after the 9/11 attacks as a central to his candidacy, the GOP candidate accidentally referred to the 9/11 attack as the ubiquitous convenience store 7/11. Salma Hayek not only shamed him on this flub, but also contended that Hillary Clinton can be the only president who can take down ISIS.
CNN obtained a video showing the presidential hopeful of the United States 2016 election saying, “I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart.” Trump then added, “For the reason that I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I witnessed the greatest individuals that I’ve ever seen in action.”
However, as stated by media outlets like E Online, as the businessman continued his speech, Trump did not correct his slip up. It’s either the presidential hopeful didn’t realize his mistake, wasn’t aware he made one, or he decided to keep powering through despite it.
The famous Mexican-American film actress – Salma Hayek will not let it go though. On Tuesday, she called Trump’s attention towards this flub and shamed him accordingly by implying he’s worse than the Mexicans he loved shaming and dyslexics.
Meanwhile, she also told The Daily Beast from London on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton can only be the presidential candidate that can beat ISIS to the pulp. “Because she’s a woman she’s always been in the shadows operating under the rules of men, and she’s navigated beautifully in it,” Hayek said. “We have not seen her full potential yet.”
These comments do not come as a surprise. Hayek has been outspoken in opposing Trump’s candidacy, especially after the GOP candidate made a controversial statement about Mexican immigrants. Hayek is also straightforward of her decision to support the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton in the upcoming United States 2016 election.
According to TV 3, Hayek’s campaign email for Clinton stated, “We cannot let hate and discrimination determine the outcome of this election.” the actress added, “The nation owe it to the hard-working Latinos that came before us, to ourselves and to our children, to prove the individuals who unfairly label us as criminals and speak down to us that our community is strong, meaningful and incredibly powerful.”
