First Lady Jill Biden was mocked after she butchered the pronunciation of the Spanish term ‘Si, se puede’ (Yes, we can) during an event in California on Wednesday honoring the late labor leader Cesar Chavez.
Biden spoke to a crowd of about 100 farm workers while standing alongside California Governor Gavin Newsom in Delano on Wednesday.
Jorge Bonilla tweeted: ‘What better way to wrap #CesarChavezDay than with Co-President Dr. Jill Biden butchering ‘Sí Se Puede’ while standing in front of Chávez’ black eagle.’
Giancarlo Sopo tweeted: ‘Jill Biden tried #Hispandering and ended up saying ‘Yes, we father!’ (Si se padre) instead of ‘Yes, we can!’ (Si se puede).
‘Not a big deal, but I’m old enough to remember when President Trump’s mispronunciations would consume news cycles.’
Steve Cortes compared the gaffe to an episode of the hit HBO show Veep.
Hugo Dante tweeted: ‘You have to be kidding me, LMAOOOOOOO.’
Dante added: ‘To be clear, this is Jill Biden saying ‘see se pwadre’ which took me a hot minute to figure was intended to be ‘si se puede’ lmfao.’
