This has to be the ultimate in chutzpah. Vicente Fox, a man who promised to end corruption as Mexico’s president, then turned around and lived like a king while half his constituents struggled to get by on $2 a day, has never been a fan of Donald Trump, despite having imitated the real estate mogul’s lifestyle on the people’s dime.
But the self-righteous indignation shown in his latest tweet, which takes Trump to task for allegedly describing third-world countries as “sh*tholes,” might seem more sincere if Fox didn’t have a reputation for swearing like a drunken sailor. In one of his most unseemly moments, he dropped an f-bomb in reaction to candidate Trump’s proposed wall along the Mexican border (see video below).
.@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?

Fox has always seemed a little unbalanced. In May of 2016, for example, he took to Univision to urge Mexicans living in the U.S. to vote against Trump. The appearance may came mere hours after Fox apologized to Trump for having called him “ignorant, crazy, egocentric, nasty, and a false prophet.”
