HuffPost Gives Mexicans Another Reason To Flee The Country

You think illegal immigration is bad now — just wait until HuffPost opens its Mexico bureau.

HuffPost continues its blasphemous coverage of the GOP’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump by opening up a Mexico bureau. Arianna Huffington announced the news in a release Tuesday by alluding to Trump’s “xenophobic proposals.” To be sure, this is the most exciting thing to happen to HuffPost since they hired Michelle Fields through the election to butcher Trump. Maybe they should combine the two genius ideas and send Fields to the Mexico bureau?

No word on whether HuffPost‘s Mexico Trump coverage will be relegated to its entertainment section.

“I’m thrilled that two months before this very important U.S. election, in which xenophobic proposals are being made to fuel hostility and suspicion toward Mexico, that The Huffington Post and Grupo Imagen are coming together to launch HuffPost Mexico,” said Arianna Huffington, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of HuffPost.

Of course, Arianna brought up the wall.

“Mexico is the largest Spanish speaking country in North America and we’re looking forward to using all the tools at our disposal to tell Mexico’s most important stories and to provide a platform to help Mexicans tell their stories themselves,” she said. “At a time when Donald Trump is running on a platform that includes putting up a wall between the U.S. and Mexico while calling Mexicans ‘killers and rapists’ and challenging the integrity of an American judge because of his Mexican descent, it’s more important than ever to open up the conversation, nurture the longstanding ties between our two countries and counter this false and dangerous narrative. We’ll do this by not only reporting on Mexico’s challenges, but also focusing on all the ways Mexicans are responding to them, overcoming great odds, and working toward solutions with ingenuity and compassion.”

Huffington despises Trump, but the hatred doesn’t come without an extremely personal reason.
