More than 60 years after her death, painter Frida Kahlo and her Casa Azul in Mexico City are still a source of admiration and inspiration. Her life is as intricate as her paintings and revered all over the world. Here are some iconic images celebrating her life in Caza Azul.

Latino Workers Are Making Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” Hats

Remember those “Make America Great Again” caps Donald Trump so proudly wears?

You know, these hats:

You can get them in red, white, camouflage…really any color you want.

The hats are being produced in the Cali-Fame factory in Carson, California which mainly employs Latinos, according to the LATimes.

Despite asking a predominately Latino workforce to construct his hats, there haven’t been any negative comments from employees according to Brian Kennedy, president of Cali-Fame.

That’s right, and the irony isn’t lost on the Latinos who work there.

“When we first got the order [for the Trump hats], I said to myself, ‘Just wait until he sees who’s making his hats,'” Yolanda Melendrez told the LATimes. “We’re Latinos, we’re Mexicans, Salvadoreños.”

FOX News has reported that the factory workers are grateful to Trump for the extra work.

They interviewed Melendrez as well, who said the increase in work from hat production has benefited the workers at the factory with steady work and pay.

Guess this means LATINOS are making America great again, right?
