There simply was no way to ignore Donald Trump this year was there? I mean, when the 69-year-old billionaire announced he was entering the GOP presidential race in June he did it with an immigrant-bashing flair that demanded attention. But lets ignore him for a moment and celebrate these Latinos that stood up to Donald Trump.
Adriana Almanza responded to Trump by introducing him to her father, Raul.
Almanza wrote an open letter that took the internet by storm. The love and respect that she has for her father, who is a Mexican immigrant, is palpable when she writes, “He left high school early on to work and contribute to the household financially. But that doesn’t mean anything. When I was young, I would come home where my dad never hesitated to help me with my homework; he instilled in me the importance of education and a degree, even though he didn’t have one. My dad has worked 5-6 days a week since I was a child and I’ve never heard him complain about it one time. He doesn’t drink. He doesn’t use drugs. He is certainly not a criminal, rapist or drug trafficker, as your speech suggested.” *Mic drop*

This made Trump so mad, he had Ramos escorted out because how dare he ask questions, who does he think he is? A REPORTER?!

Donaldo Trumpez is just like Donald Trump except he’s a Mexican presidential hopeful. He wants to build a wall on the border too, but in his case it’s to keep Americans out of Mexico. It’s all funny and satirically terrifying at the same time.
