Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter and legitimately one of the toughest men on the planet Jorge Masvidal didn’t mince words earlier this week when talking about the upcoming election and his support of President Donald Trump for re-election, going so far as to say that “Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote.”

“The Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote,” Masvidal said. “They think that we just have to hand it over to them. That’s right. We sure as hell don’t.”

In video that has been posted all over social media and YouTube, Masvidal’s words have gone viral, including a claim that former vice president Joe Biden played the song “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi on his phone in a video merely to pander to Latinos.

“You know what else is not gonna work for them?” Masvidal said concering Democrats. “Playing ‘Despacito’ on your cellphone to pander to us. Hell no. You gotta give us some credit for having heads on our shoulders.”

Masvidal also spoke about the ills that socialism and communism brought to "great countries, like Venezuela and Cuba." But perhaps the strongest statement made by Masvidal came towards the end of his comments in the form of a sports analogy.

Now I’m a professional athlete, and I’ve been one for most of my life, so I’ve always seen things through a sports lens. That makes Donald Trump our head coach, and before the global pandemic we were winning Super Bowls. And when you’re winning Super Bowls, you don’t fire the coach. It doesn’t matter if you don’t like the plays he runs, the players he puts on the field or what he says on Twitter. You sure as hell don’t replace him for another coach that’s been in the business for 47 years at every level and never won a f**king game.
