Donald Trump has never been shy about his views toward immigration, including calling Alicia Machado "Miss Housekeeping," and it was no different during Wednesday night's third presidential debate. When addressing the issue of immigration, Trump hit a new low and referred to illegal immigrants as "bad hombres."
"One of my first acts will be to get rid of all the drug lords . . . We're going to get them out, we're going to secure the border," he said. "We have some bad hombres here, and we're going to get them out." Yes, you read that correctly, and all it took was three minutes before the reference was trending on Twitter. His racist remarks have us questioning whether this is the actual debate or a skit on SNL.
Watch the video below, and then see how the internet reacted . . . We're warning you, it's not pretty.
