The US elected an outsider as president once when they elected Donald Trump and now Former President of Mexico Vincente Fox is hoping they will elect another one, him.
Of course, he’s not serious, but he still made a five-minute video statement about the topic and he didn’t hold back on slamming Trump. All this with mariachis singing a “Vincente for Presidente” campaign tune.
“Donald, every time I make fun of you, which I do a lot, people say, ‘Why can’t you be our president?’” said Fox, who came out of his quiet post-presidency and quickly rose to internet fame as one of Trump’s most brutal and hilarious critics.
“America, I feel your pain. We all do. And that is why today I am proud to announce my candidacy for president of the United States,” said Fox, wearing a Trump-style campaign red cap that read, “Always ask before grabbing a p**sy.”
Fox, who served as President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, first grabbed American attention when he sat for interviews with The Washington Post and other outlets where he slammed Trump over his border wall.
He stated firmly that Mexico would never pay for the wall with plenty of F-bombs laced in.
‘‘Now, I know, a lot of you will say, ‘How can you be president? You’re a Mexican,’’’ Fox says in his latest video. ‘‘And to those people, I have three words: Donald [F***ing] Trump. If that worn-out baseball glove tightly gripping a turd can be president, then, amigos, anyone can!’’
