Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro on Tuesday tweeted a meme invoking a character from the popular streaming series The Mandalorian to show his support for moving early primaries to states with more diverse populations that better reflect the Democratic base.
The presidential candidate was responding to a tweet by Nate Silver of the polling website FiveThirtyEight, who tweeted, If the Democratic Party wants a field that's representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn't have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year.
In response, Castro tweeted an image of a character from the Disney Plus series, depicted sipping tea, who has been nicknamed Baby Yoda by fans.

Good grief! What next?
Ironically, Baby Yoda would get more votes than that slimeball.
Whew, for a moment when I saw the title, I said to myself: “I didn’t know Fidel was still alive and is a fan of Star Wars...”
This racist pablum again?
I suspect you can get Iowa and New Hampshire to move their efforts back to the day after the last election to stay in their traditional order.
Why is the tweet of “Baby Yoda” clever? What am I missing?
No one in Florida is going to vote for a candidate with the surname of Castro.
Maybe he's trying to hitch his name to the Star Wars franchise for free publicity. His name will come up on Star War searches.
Or maybe he's going for the Star Wars demographic.
Better move up the Primary in Vermont.
It’s the hot meme right now among the kids. I guess it makes Castro hip. He’d be hipper if he acknowledged the superiority of Owlkitty:
Barry Soetero maxed out the RAT race card.
He says these things because he's a monstrous racist.
‘RaceSpeak’ from the mouth of a son of an old time Latino activist.. ?
I’m shocked. Not.
It's not just Castro...
Like any good communist, Castro is trying to use aliens in his election campaign.
“May the Farts be against him”!
“Castro: I get my power from the farce media”.
Fidel Castro to Julian Castro: “Julian, you are my son”.
Yoda: “The stupid and the treason is strong in this one”.
I’ve met communists who were more honest than Castro.
