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.
