In the latest episode of the political joke we’re now living, Rep. Mike Conaway from Texas just told The Dallas Morning News (apparently with a straight face) that the Democrats using Mexican singers, charros, mariachis and soap operas to lure Hispanics to the Hillary Clinton campaign is pretty much the same thing as the Russian hacking scandal.
Per Conaway himself:
“Harry Reid and the Democrats brought in Mexican soap opera stars, singers and entertainers who had immense influence in those communities into Las Vegas, to entertain, get out the vote and so forth.”
And this, says Conaway, should be considered “foreign influence […] If we’re worried about foreign influence, let’s have the whole story.”
Really? Last I checked, many of those colorful people seen singing on stage or hosting taco-filled fiestas for Hillary were actually U.S.-born or U.S. citizens (Los Tigres del Norte, Julieta Venegas, Vicente Fernández, etc.) but anyway, they were not sneaking behind the Web to hack an election were they.
Come on! ¡Pinche Conagüey!

Say what you will about you-know-who* but you cannot deny he has given my people (i.e. The Mexicans *and* The Funny People) plenty to work with.
Take the Bad Hombres burrito, spotted in Portland, Maine, which according to their creators sold out 2 hours after putting it on the menu the day after the last debate.
I can only hope the lucky ones to get their hands on one were able to wash it down with a Mexican Coca-Cola, to further spitte you-know-who*.
*Starting today, this blogger will do her best to stop mentioning this individual by name.

Priorities USA has reportedly spent a lot of dinero in a couple of TV spots — in English and Spanish — that aim to paint a picture of Donald Trump as “racist, anti-Mexican and unacceptable to Hispanic voters.” No shit.
The spots (Our Country / Nuestro país) feature Careliz, a Latina identified as the mother of two sons who have served in the military, and who claims to be pretty much disgusted at what El Trumpo has to say about Mexicans.
I don’t know about you, but as a Latina who has been disgusted at Trump for a very long time, I think Priorities USA should spend its money more wisely. For example: How about using that cash to set up better taquerías nationwide?
Mexicans gotta eat, you know?
Oh, the commercial is also available in English, because Hispanics can actually speak two languages, you know?
