As the country deals with a federal government shutdown, funny man George Lopez had a unique suggestion.
He said the time is right and Latinos should just take over America.
A video crew with TMZ caught up with the Mexican-American actor
outside his hotel in New York City, and when asked about the shutdown,
he said, "We should shutdown – let all the Mexicans take over. They are
running the country anyways."
"Listen, shut the government down. Let the Latinos take over," Lopez
followed up, before pulling a bellboy he called Victor in front of the
"Latinos are No. 1," Victor said to the camera.
When asked what he would do if he was president, Lopez continued
along the same thought: "I'd let the Latinos take over – I've been
Lopez then pulled over a fan and said "I'd let the black people and Latinos take over."
