The Onion News Network Pokes Fun At Mitt Romney's Latino Outreach With Paco, The Sombrero-Wearing Parrot

Posted: Updated:

The Onion News Network is poking fun at Mitt Romney's campaign for their recent attempts to reach out to Hispanic voters.

Some believe Romney's stance on various immigration-related issues has alienated Latino voters, and the GOP candidate is doing his best to win them back. In real life, Romney's campaign has released Spanish language ads and garnered the endorsement of prominent Latino Republicans, including Marco Rubio. But The Onion News network, a fake parody site, invented a stereotype parrot called "Paco" that they describe as Romney's new "sidekick."

Watch the video above to watch Paco in action.
