Mexico's offer of Food

And *that's* how we end up getting taco trucks on every corner, conservative voters.  Joke's on you!

I am more concerned on how I get Korean taco trucks in my corner of Western Mass.

No, really. They're f*cking delicious, and now I'm out in New England...

The Governor of Texas accepted the offer yesterday, when Trump hadn't acknowledged the offer after 2 days (he still hasn't).

Tillerson thanked them, but at least someone in the Federal government replied.

Tillerson has far more class than Donny 2 Scoops. However, that is a bar that is extremely low.

No need for the "fuera". Otherwise you're telling them to build a wall outside of this.

Uh oh, Trump's gonna have the INS deport more US citizens of Latino descent to punish them for this!

My Spanish is just enough to get my nose busted; but "fuera" means "outside", and "construir" is an infinitive. At least subby got "bitsches" right. But I'm not sure if "perra" is used this way. The usual term for sumbeach is "hijo de puta."

May I suggest: «Construyan una pared con esto, pendejos.»

I just looked up Korean taco on Pinterest. I must have one if I have to make it myself. Bulgogi is one of my favorite things.

Mexico is not an incredibly wealthy country. How are they going to afford this and pay for the wall?

Construir una pared con esto.

Makes more sense to me.

It is acceptable to use an infinitive to give orders or direction.  It comes across as deferential and not urgent but it is understood.

I'd suggest that CEO of a publicly traded company would give him experience being accountable to someone other than yourself.  Trump has no concept of that.

No need for the "fuera". Otherwise you're telling them to build a wall outside of this.


Either subby's Spanish is bad, or they were trying to say something along the lines of.

"Outside of us doing this, you still gonna build this wall, biatches".

Using "fuera de esto" does not have to literally mean outside of in the literal, physical sense.  It can also mean otherwise.

If my wife had a biatch customer at work but otherwise her day was good, she would say "Pues, muy mala gente ese cliente, pero fuero de eso, el dia no fue tan malo."  Well, the client was not the best person, but otherwise the day was not too bad.

But from the context, Subby was trying to say "Build a wall out of this, biatches". This being the food/aid.

So they should have said "Construye una pared con esto, perras".

These days it's far too easy to think someone is 'doing a good job' simply because they are not a comically inept racist buffoon with a third grader's understanding of foreign policy and history.

Yeah that's good (Austin has a chain of Korean BBQ taco shops called Chi'Lantro), but wait until you try Detroit style Curry Pizza.

I farking love the direction that 21st century American food is going. This is why multicultural societies are pretty awesome.

Either subby's Spanish is bad, or they were trying to say something along the lines of.

"Outside of us doing this, you still gonna build this wall, biatches".


Or, most likely, they put "out of this" into Google Translate.
