Hello. It’s me, Vicente Fox, with another message for last year’s rotting Halloween pumpkin.
Has any video address ever started better than that? This one is from the Mexican counterpart to George W. Bush, Vicente Fox Quesada, who has made it his mission in life to mock, laugh at, and make life miserable for the aforementioned pumpkin, Donald Trump.
Partnering with Super Deluxe, an entertainment outlet which promises “things that will make you laugh and think and that will maybe distract you from the great, dark void threatening to pull us all into its grasp,” Presidente Vicente made a parody video of a campaign announcement for a run at the American presidency in 2020.
Fox is not eligible, of course. He was born in Mexico City. But he didn’t let a little thing like citizenship get in the way of making this video. The entire piece is riddled with not-so-subtle jabs at Trump, from the meta to the meme-worthy. And there, sitting at his exquisitely appointed desk surrounded by Trumpian artifacts, Fox makes his case for our next presidential election.
Among the highlights:
Now I know a lot of you will say, ‘How can you be president? You are Mexican.’ And to those people I have three words: Donald Fucken Trump. If that worn-out baseball glove tightly gripping a turd can be president, then amigos, anyone can.
Donald, you have the worst team since the team that was beaten by Air Bud, a basketball-playing golden retriever who has no hands, which are so, so necessary for the sport of basketball.
I was going to promise to undo all of Donald’s hateful legislation, but amigo, you haven’t passed a fucken thing. I’m not even President yet and we’ve both passed the same amount of substantial legislation in America.”
El Presidente even has a few hats for sale.
There’s an extended text version of the address on the Super Deluxe website, but for now, just enjoy the video, and share it with your friends:
