Welcome to Scotland Sr. Trump (Con Mariachi)

Leave it to the good people of Scotland to stage hilarious protests during Donald Trump’s visit in the wake of Brexit.

Paddy Power, a bookmaker (similar to a sportsbook in Costa Rica) based in Ireland, came up with a clever way to welcome the presumptive Republican candidate to succeed President Barack Obama in the United States. Here’s how the Irish sports betting giant described its stunt:

We gave Donald Trump a good guac-ing when he visited Scotland today. The businessman and US presidential candidate – yeah, we still think the second bit must be a hoax, too – was in Turnberry, Ayrshire to open a new golf course.


Given his controversial election promises, including building a wall along the Mexican border, we wanted to give him a special, Paddy Power welcome. So, obviously, we snuck a Mexican Mariachi band, Juan Direction, into Glasgow Prestwick airport to greet the billionaire as he landed on the runway.

Juan Direction actually followed Mr. Trump to his golf course, but the U.S. Secret Service detail assigned to him stopped the mariachis from continuing to serenade the candidate.

Orgullosamente Mexicano? Mitt Romney eligible for Mexican Passport


Four years after electing its first black president, the U.S. could soon have its first presidential nominee whose father was born in Mexico.

It’s already been published: Mitt Romney’s father is Mexican. George Romney was born in 1907 in an American colony in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Check out any official Mexican guide for “paisanos” – those living in the U.S. – that now appear to have been written with Romney’s father in mind: “Dear Paisano: If you are Mexican and have children born in the United States, by registering them in any Mexican consulate they will have dual nationality.”
