During an appearance on “El Show de Piolín” in Los Angeles, former Mexican President Vicente Fox found a new way to demonstrate his often-stated criticisms of Donald Trump: Beating a piñata of the Republican presidential candidate.
The appearance took place on a street in Los Angeles, after Fox ate a taco from a truck nearby.
“Los tacos will make America great — not the other guy,” Fox said in English.
After being asked about GOP nominee, Fox turned to the piñata version of Trump, hanging on a nearby tent. He punched it several times before someone handed him a stick, which with he continued to strike it.
After successfully smashing open the piñata, Fox stuck his hand into the replica’s head and said, “Empty, totally empty. He doesn’t have a brain.”
Trump’s comments about Mexico — he said the country was sending “rapists” and other criminals across the border — have galled Mexicans since the GOP candidate first made them in mid-2015.
Fox has been at the forefront of the Mexican backlash against Trump. He has said the Republican candidate “reminds me of Hitler,” a comparison other Mexican leaders have made. Fox has also said multiple times that he would not pay for the “f—— wall” that Trump has proposed building on the US-Mexico border.
