Hillary Clinton Mangles Popular Spanish Phrase In Stump Speech [VIDEO]

Hillary Clinton badly mangled a popular Spanish phrase during a campaign appearance in California on Thursday.

As Clinton entered the “we are a nation of immigrants” portion of her stump speech at the event in El Centro, the crowd started chanting the popular phrase “Si se puede” — Spanish for “Yes we can!”

But Clinton was a bit off. She got the “si” and the “se” parts right but said “pueda” instead of the proper word.

Clinton’s campaign often peppers her Twitter feed with Spanish in an overt appeal to Hispanic voters. She also often repeats the term “Basta” or “Enough!” when talking about Donald Trump on the campaign trail.
