GOP Candidate's Facebook Meme: "Hillary Meal Deal" (3 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts, and a Bunch of Left Wings)

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Jason Salzman

Garcia Hillary Meal Deal 2(Very classy — Promoted by Colorado Pols)

I called Raymond Garcia, a Republican candidate for Colorado state house, after I saw a couple memes he posted for his Facebook friends.

One depicts an image of Hillary Clinton on a bucket of “HRC” Kentucky Fried Chicken with the text, “Hillary Meal Deal, 3 fat thighs, 2 small breasts, and a bunch of left wings.” (“Crispy Commie Recipe.”)

The other was a anti-Hillary version of an anti-Trump statue.

Asked if he’s worried that these posts, which were obtained from a source, might offend people, the House District 1 candidate said:

Garcia: “I can’t help it if somebody gets offended. If they get offended, that’s their deal.”

Delta County Colorado GOP chair Linda Sorenson offered a similar response when asked if her Facebook post, comparing Obama to a Chimp, was a joke. A subsequent outrcry led to her resignation.

Garcia, who hopes to unseat Democrat Susan Lontine in the Southwest Denver district, said he posted the memes “in response to a post that somebody else has put up against Trump.”

“So it’s the exact same thing, but it’s been converted over so it criticizes Hillary instead of criticizing Trump,” Garcia said. “It’s just in response to the posts that I’ve been seeing criticizing Trump.”

I saw the Trump statue he’s referring to, but I can’t find a similar meme about a Trump meal deal. The “Meal Deal” meme has been around since at least 2008, when it was labeled “truly horrible” by a New York Magazine writer.

In any case, whether similar memes exist, I can’t find either Hillary meme posted on Facebook by a candidate seeking a state office.

I  asked if Garcia’s intent was to joke.

“Yeah, just like they did,” he replied.

After I spoke with Garcia Wednesday, he added another post on Facebook, with the text, “I Gave Her 32 Million Dollars Because She Reminds Me of My Favorite Goat.” (See below.)

  1. If one wanted to make this a campaign about candidate's personal attributes, one might follow in Marco Rubio's little boot steps and talk about Donald Trump's diminutive hand size. 

  2. The HRC fried chicken bucket meme is offensive. However, I'm sorry but I don't think Dems have much room to complain about naked Hillary statues after we now have  naked Trump images imprinted on our corneas. It was pretty funny the first five times I saw it. After that, not so much. And thank your local deity that no one's made a naked Bernie statue yet.

    Only in America could we really be this vulgar.

      1. That's something you could check on for us but I can't remember a Dem elected official or candidate getting in trouble for liking and gleefully sharing this kind of thing on their FB pages. It always seem to be a Republican. I suppose something of the kind could be found on the Dem side but it must be heavily lopsided or our trolls would be posting to file under Johnny does it too.

        And forget abut not caring if some people are offended.  It's amazing to me that so many GOP pols and other GOP figures in public life want to present themselves as crass, crude, classless individuals to the public. Aren't they all supposed to be all about family values, being more religious and moral than thou?

        Is this the way they want to present themselves to their kids? Do they really want to present to the public as louts with no dignity?

        I don't get  it. 

      2. You're right in that we should hold candidates and elected officials to a higher standard of decorum.  And to Bluecat's point that Republicans are supposed to be all about the family values and decency, abstinence,  bla-bla, they should be holding themselves to a higher standard.

  3. They should, but having nominated a gutter-snipe like Trump, all bets are off on decency, and a shameful number of Republicans will hold their noses and vote for the creep just to keep "that woman" out of the Oval.
