While the Latino networks quickly buried Monday´s deadly Nashville school shooting when it was learned that the assassin was a deranged transsexual, the prospect of a dream coming true in the shape of a Donald Trump mug shot was too much to ignore.
Just watch this compilation from newscasts that aired over Telemundo, Univision and CNN En Español this past week; a case history for just how obsessed the progressive Spanish-language media is with the former president:
NACHO LOZANO, TELEMUNDO: If there is an arrest, what would we be looking at?
MARIA PAULA OCHOA:
Most likely, we've been told, is that they'd be taking his fingerprints, that famous photo also, the mug shot.
JUAN CARLOS LOPEZ, CNNEE: Former President Trump will show up, fingerprints will be taken, the photo
MANUEL RETURETA, LAWYER: Definitely. The process is very simple; He appears, the fingerprints are taken, they take his photograph, and the process begins at that moment. It's a normal process for anyone.
PEGGY CARRANZA, UNIVISION: And like anyone else, he would have to be fingerprinted and also photographed.
He would have to be fingerprinted, even photographed for the police record
He should be fingerprinted in addition to being photographed for the police record
He will have to appear here before a judge; he will be fingerprinted and photographed for the police record
JOSEPH MALOUF, TELEMUNDO: It is very likely that he will be fingerprinted, photographed
NAYELI CHAVEZ-GELLER, UNIVISION: and processed with a photograph, with fingerprints
BARRY DEONARINE,ATTORNEY: He has to show up to be detained. With photos and fingerprints
BLANCA ROSA VILCHES, UNIVISION: The process is to take his fingerprints, a photograph and probably handcuff him.
CRISTINA LONDOÑO, TELEMUNDO: But I think that the most disturbing image Americans might see is that mugshot of a former president of the United States from the front and from the side, with an ID number.
With Donald Trump´s arraignment in Manhattan set for next Tuesday, April 7th, we can expect a barrage of “news” about DJT´s mugshot at the Latino networks. We'll be watching.
