These "Bad Hombres" Memes & Jokes Are Actually Really Good
At Wednesday's presidential debate, Donald Trump said America has "some bad hombres," and pledged to "get 'em out" when talking about immigration. Needless to say, that led to a flurry of debate memes about hombres. It was a ridiculous thing to say at a debate, of course, but as many viewers quickly realized, it was a ripe source for comedy. After all, it's not too often that you hear Trump utter the word "hombres," or indeed say anything in Spanish.
"One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, all of the bad ones," Trump said, apparently distinguishing between good and bad drug lords. "We have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out. We're going to get them out, we're going to secure the border, and once the border is secure, at a later date, we will make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here that we're going to get them out."
Given Trump's documented racism against Mexicans, it was perhaps uncouth for him to casually dip into Spanish while touting his hardline, anti-immigrant policy. Nevertheless, he did exactly that, and not surprisingly, Twitter responded exactly as you'd expect.
