After Trump supporter Marco Gutierrez went on MSNBC and warned that a HRC presidency could have very delicious repercussions, the internet went nuts.
Trump surrogate warns of “taco trucks on every corner” if Trump loses. PEOPLE: WE HAVE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

But soon taco truck fever extended past the bubble of social media. Suddenly the taco trucks appeared.
Yes, the taco trucks, they got in formation.
The Arizona Democratic party updated its sign.
Heck, even Never Trump conservative and Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin jumped on the taco cart.
But while McMullin was chowing down, Democrats decided to take action. In what may be one of the greatest trollings of all time, Denver, Colorado’s Councilman Paul Lopez parked a taco truck directly outside Trump’s Denver campaign headquarters on Friday.
Here’s the truck, right across the street from the Trump office.
Turns out, #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner isn’t just a hashtag. It’s a creative way to register voters.
In Philly, one truck offered free tacos with voter registration!
And the taco guerilla warfare continued this weekend.
In Detroit, small business owners Nancy Paz and Jose Badajoz parked their taco truck outside of the church Donald Trump visited on Saturday.
According to NPR, Paz, who immigrated from Mexico, told Pluta she parked her family’s taco truck near the church with hopes that Trump might glimpse it on his way in.
“Because Donald say the Mexican people, they doesn’t work,” Paz told Pluta. “We come here to say, yes, we work hard, for the family.”
And the truck did yuge business—sales were tremendous! In fact, they were so busy that a sort of surge pricing went into effect, raising the cost of a chicken, pork, or steak taco from $1.50 to $2.50.
And from the looks of it, the tacos were delicious.
Unfortunately, not all of us are enjoying the taco windfall just yet. Some are still journeying to local restaurants for their taco needs.
Hey, progress is a slow game. But if you can dream it, you can build it.
