Internet Has A Lot Of Feelings About Trump’s ‘Bad Hombres’ Quip

During the third and final presidential debate, Republican nominee Donald Trump’s stance on immigration took a turn for worse.


If you thought Donald Trump’s racism could not get any worse, you were sadly mistaken.

During the final presidential debate on Wednesday, the GOP candidate spent the immigration portion of the night falsely bragging about getting the endorsement of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while upholding his infamous idea to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

He also told moderator Chris Wallace that if elected president, he would tighten border security by deporting criminal undocumented immigrants – or “bad hombres,” as he called them.

“One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, we have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out,” the media mogul exclaimed. “We'll get them out, secure the border, and once the border is secured, at a later date we'll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we're going to get them out.”

At first, people were just shocked:

The racist quip soon inspired some hilarious memes

Along with some bad hair jokes… because “bad ombres”

However, Twitter soon figured out what Trump had actually meant

Sadly, this isn’t the first time the racist demagogue has used this particular phrase.

Last year, he told a conservative radio host, “People are coming through the border that are really bad hombres and bad dudes.”

Some people just never learn.
