Mexico’s Top Health Official Is Now an Official Piñata, Because Mexico

Hugo López-Gatell as a piñata? Yes, please, thank you.

It is official: Hugo López-Gatell Ramírez, the Mexican deputy health minister in the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19 has been immortalized in a piñata from the famed Piñatería Ramírez in northern Mexico.

The López-Gatell piñata comes with –what else– a mini version of the coronavirus piñata and a sign with a very appropriate message in these times of pandemia: Quédate en casa (Stay home.)

As a Twitter follower wrote the other day: This is “as prestigious as having been inducted into the Mexican historical hall of fame.”

Mexican ‘Intellectual’ Repeatedly Stabs Trump Piñata, Because We’ve All Gone Mad

This is Guadalupe Loaeza, a member of Mexico’s so-called intellectual elite who decided to celebrate her 71 birthday by repeatedly stabbing a Donald Trump piñata in her backyard — and proudly tweeting about it.

In case you’re wondering, Loaeza is a Mexican writer who became famous by chronicling the Mexican bourgeoisie (a group she knows well, because she belongs to it, of course.)

For reasons I fail to comprehend, she has been awarded the distinction of Chevalier from the Légion d’Honneur of France and written many books that I’ve successfully managed to avoid.

Watch. Learn from this. Do not repeat…. SIGH.

This Chicago Bar Wants you to Bash Trump on Cinco de Mayo

extralargeChicago, the city with not one but Two Donald Trump toilets, is the proud host of the upcoming #ThumpTrump Cinco de Mayo Bash, a fiesta organized by a Lakeview beer & bourbon bar featuring a giant Trump piñata.

Like Mr. Trump would say, I think it’s terrific to give Chicagoans a chance to bash the Republican presidential front-runner, too. (Why would Mexicans have all the fun?)

I don’t know about you, but I’m already booking a plane ticket to the Windy City: Beer, bourbon, a Trump piñata… How can you go wrong?
