Tucker Carlson and Univision host Enrique Acevedo discussed a Mexican restaurant that faced backlash for serving Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday night and things went down a strange path which led to Carlson declaring his love for tacos.


“There is something to be said about a man … about Jeff Sessions and the moral contradictions of a man that led the charge to dehumanize and criminalize immigrants and then suddenly shows up at a Mexican restaurant to order huevos rancheros. That’s like Cuban officials going to a McDonald’s to order a Big Mac after a speech on American imperialism,” Enrique Acevedo stated.

A Houston area Mexican restaurant, El Tiempo Cantina, received backlash for serving Attorney General Jeff Sessions last weekend.

“The posting of a photograph of the Attorney General at one of our restaurants does not represent us supporting his positions,” Roland Laurenzo, the restaurant owner, wrote on Facebook, but it has been deleted. (RELATED: Mexican Restaurant Receives Backlash For Serving Jeff Sessions)

 “I think what people are point out, the contradiction of attacking someone’s culture, someone’s story and then celebrating their food,” he continued before being cut off.

Carlson said, “What do you mean their food? It’s American food. What do you think, you own tacos now or something? I love this it’s so crazy. Oh really? It sounds like you feel like you own tacos. I feel like I do, I feel like they’re an American food and I’m going to keep eating them even though I agree with Jeff Sessions.”
