Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Drops A Diss Video Against Trump And It’s Savage

It’s no secret that former Mexican President Vicente Fox dislikes Donald Trump. From the beginning days of Trump’s 2016 campaign, Fox made it clear that he thought Trump was a bad match for the United States and implored American voters (especially Latinos) to pick someone else through a series of scathing video ads.

Now, Fox is back with an SNL style sketch video lampooning the president for his most ridiculous moments and talking points, again urging Americans to select someone else come November’s election.

Vicente Fox is coming for Trump, taking no prisoners and I am here for every moment of it.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox – who was in office from 2000-2006 – has repeatedly attacked Donald Trump but his most recent video is at a whole other level. His video, which is part SNL sketch and part infomercial for his line of MAGA-inspired hats, is basically one of the most effective political ads against Trump that’s currently out there.

It’s absurd, over the top, and would likely have caused a diplomatic incident if we were living in any other era. Instead, it’s just good TV.

From his ranch, Fox asks Americans to vote “for someone who is a better president than Donald Trump.” In his words. “America, the rest of the world has its eyes on you, we are counting on you. You don’t have to vote for me,” he tells his viewers, “but please vote for someone who is a better president than Donald Trump.”

He closes the message with his two middle fingers raised from a hallway in clear allusion to Trump. Fox’s latest video is just the most recent in a string of stinging rebukes of Donald Trump.

The video, although obviously an attack ad against Trump, is also a sort of ad for Fox’s line of hats that clearly make fun of Trump’s MAGA hats.

Fox has launched his own collection of red hats, identical to those worn by the current resident of the White House and his legion of MAGA-followers. They look exactly the same, down to the shade of red and typeface – except the phrases make light of some of Trump’s most absurd moments, arguments, and talking points. Some of the options include:

  • 65 million is more than 62 million
  • Always ask before grabbing a pussy
  • Putin is not my papi
  • Trump has baby fingers
  • Not afraid of stairs

Fox has a long history of mocking Trump, including several comments on Trump’s planned border wall.

The former president had worn a t-shirt that read: “Can’t build a wall if your hands are too small.” The T-shirt refers to a joke which came about during the 2016 presidential campaign and was most notably used by Trump’s primary challenger Marco Rubio, who ridiculed him about the size of his hands during a debate.

He also told Donald Trump: ‘I’m not paying for the f***ing wall!’

With a very blunt tone, Fox straight up told Trump ““I’m not going to pay for the f***ing wall.” The comment was in response to Trump’s announcement that Mexico would pay for the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. He went on to say that Trump should pay for it.

And when Trump one the Nevada primary in 2016, Fox questioned who the 44% of Hispanics were that voted for Trump.

“They are followers of a false prophet and he’s going to take them to the desert… And if they think they will benefit with an administration led by Donald Trump, they’re wrong. They must open their eyes…This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy”, he said in an interview with Fusion.

He’s also told Donald Trump that his ‘mouth is the foulest s***hole in the world.’

After Trump made headlines for calling Haiti and African countries “shithole countries,” Fox fired back.

“Donald Trump, your mouth is the foulest sh*thole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not,” he said on Twitter.

Just when you think yo’ve seen all the Karen videos out there, one comes out of left field and blows them all out of the water.

The video we’re talking about here is the video of Cindy Falco-DiCorrado, a 62-year-old “anti-mask activist” who exemplifies the very definition of white privilege.

Falco-DiCorrado was arrested last Thursday at an Einstein Bagels location in Boca Raton, Florida. Luckily for the internet, Falco-DiCorrado had a camerawoman in tow to record the entire debacle leading up to the arrest.

The video starts in the middle of things, with an officer taking an unmasked Falco-DiCorrado by the arm, asking her to please step outside. It is immediately evident that the woman (who, by the way, is dressed in head-to-toe leopard print) will not be compliant.

Falco-DiCorrado begins raising her voice and screaming at the officer, shouting things like “Get your hands off of me! You are kidnapping me!” and “You are violating the Constitution! That’s discrimination!”

At one point, the unseen camerawoman who is recording the meltdown pans around the bagel shop to get a look at all of the spectators.

It appears that every customer in the shop, as well as the workers behind the counter, have taken their phones out to record the bizarre incident.

The Florida woman continues to struggle with the cop and scream things like “Get your hands off of me! I’ve done nothing wrong, I am not a criminal,” while accusing the police officer (who is Black) of “stealing her purse”.

The struggle continues until a second cop arrives and immediately decides to not handle the unhinged woman with kid gloves. The second cop immediately grabs her by the arm and, with the help of the other cop, proceeds to drag her out of the shop.

But the video doesn’t end there. As Falco-DiCorrado is dragged out of the shop, she continues to scream.

The officers proceed to arrest her while she struggles against them and screams: “Stop it! You cannot arrest me! I’ve done nothing illegal!”

The entire time she is being arrested she is visibly and enthusiastically resisting arrest.

Watching the video, one can’t help but wonder how the officers would have treated her if her skin was a different color.

The video was posted to the popular Instagram page @CrazyKarens where it quickly went viral.

Commentators were stunned by the entire interaction, writing things like: “They let her get away with way too much! They would’ve thrown a person of color right on the ground the minute he/she didn’t stand up.”

Another person said: “With all that resistance she didn’t get pepper spray, no taser, no knee to the neck, no punches and they even called her ‘ma’am'”.

According to officials, Falco-DiCorrado is facing charges of trespassing and resisting arrest without violence. All because she didn’t want to wear a mask.

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

We’ve all experienced it before–the nervousness of meeting your partner’s parents. And if you’re in an interracial relationship, that nervousness grows exponentially.

That’s why this video of a young Latino man who is hesitant about entering his white girlfriend’s Trump-supporting family’s house has gone viral.

It’s #relatable.

The video starts off with the unnamed boyfriend narrating what’s happening to him as his girlfriend practically drags him into her parent’s home.

In Spanish, he says “I’m going to visit my girlfriend’s parent’s house. The house is very beautiful and she wants me to go inside. But I’m not going to do that because there’s a problem.”

At this point, he pans up to focus on a “Trump” sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.

He turns the camera around to show his own very worried face. The young man’s girlfriend tries to assure him that everything is okay, promising him that her parents are “going to like you”.

The young man tells her to go on without him because he “doesn’t want to die” today. “Maybe tomorrow, yes. But today–no,” he says.

His girlfriend keeps insisting he follow her in until he finally says: “They don’t like me!” before zooming in on the “Trump/Pence” sign one final time. The comedic timing is *chef’s kiss* impeccable.

The video is captioned “This Spanish remake of ‘Get Out’–a witty nod to the 2017 horror film.

As a refresher, “Get Out” centers on a young Black man in an interracial relationship who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend. Soon, he realizes the family is not quite as idyllic as they’re pretending to be. Before long, he realizes his life is in danger.

The movie accurately depicted the real-life horror of racism and white supremacy through a cinematic lens. Phrases like “the sunken place” (the place the main character went when he’s paralyzed by his girlfriend’s mother) became cultural shorthand for: the “place an oppressed person goes when they have become silent or compliant to their own oppression” (thanks Urban Dictionary).

Internet commentators chimed in with their own thoughts and opinions about the super relatable video.

One Reddit user knew exactly how the young man felt. “As a biracial person who dated a girl from a very conservative Republican family, they never let me forget that I was biracial,” he said. “They brought it up almost every day.”

Another knew the struggles of having family members with different views from their own: “I have friends and family members that have been radicalized.. it’s very difficult to have a conversation about anything anymore that doesn’t end with vitriol.”

Another Reddit user had more sympathy for the man’s girlfriend. “I feel bad for the girl honestly,” they said. “We may be able to choose who we befriend, but we can never choose our parents.”
