Twenty six year old Hunter Young of Boulder Colorado doubts that Donald Trump will be president in 2017, but like many in the US, he's planning to make the 2016 Cinco de Mayo celebration a blow out, just in case.
Talking to a TS reporter, Young said, "Man, I knew this Trump was a hater when he started talking about a ban on Cinco de Mayo. For this year's party we're already stocked up on Mexican beers in case there's a run on them right before Cinco de Mayo."
Young's fears in fact have merit: already spot shortages of Mexican beer are occurring in some US markets, especially those with a large Mexican and Latino populations.
Maloof distributors in Albuquerque New Mexico said there would be no problems for them or other distributors. George Maloof SR. told the spoof by phone, "We've seen rising sales of Mexican beers ever since Donald Trump started talking about a ban on Cinco de Mayo and we've had no problem anticipating the demand, we knew this would be a big year because of the political climate"
When asked what he thought about Trump's proposed ban, Maloof laughed and said, "There are so many other things that have to happen before a president Trump could happen. OK, so let's say he wins and tries to enact a ban on Cinco de Mayo, he would face so many lawsuits from businesses, it could never happen."
Or could it?
