Jeb Bush Should Send the Proceeds of his $75 ‘Guaca Bowle’ to Columba’s Aunt in Mexico


On this this April 2015 segment, Univision News introduced Hispanics to María Diega Méndez, a lovely old lady who lives in Guanajuato, Mexico and happens to be very poor and very sick. The reason for all the media attention? She is the aunt of Columba [not Columbia, nor Colombia] Garnica, better known as Columba [not Columbia, nor Colombia] Bush.

The Univision segment basically makes one strong point: That should Columba (not Columbia, nor Columbia) become the U.S. First Lady, she should at least help pay for this poor’s woman’s medication.

I mean… after all, what are The Bushes going to do with the proceeds of their $75 Guaca Bowl?

Trump Sends Ramos Back to Univision; Ramos not Helping Make America Great Again


Donald Trump (aka Mexico’s favorite piñata) this evening decided to kick Jorge Ramos out of a press conference, because Ramos wouldn’t sit down nor shut up, which basically means he’s not helping make America great again.

¡Pinche Ramos, pues!

Here’s a Vine from the great Gabe Ortiz

Yeah, Hispanic Scholarships Sound like a Swell Idea, but Right Now We Need a ‘Delibrero’


Attention, New York Hispanics!

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is offering help to “prepare, plan and pay for your children’s university,” which is, like, great, but let’s be honest: Chances are you’re going to end up in debt anyhow, and your children, cleaning toilets for Donald Trump.

But don’t despair. You might want to call the number above and get yourself a steady job as a “delibrero,” which I can assure you is an activity in high demand — at least in Hispanic Harlem.

Now, if being a “delibrero” is not your thing, you might want to consider this awesome sandwich opportunity, also in Harlem and — naturally — well paid. (NOTE: little to no English required. Yay!)

But hurry! the American Dream might not wait for you forever.
