It was an eye-popping story which lit up the internet: American college kids flowing wildernes in Mexico by hooting construct the wall to affronted Mexicans.
The party multitudes who crowded Cancns barrooms and beaches for springtime terminate last month were apparently mixing tequila with Donald Trump Kool-Aid and reviling their hosts.
A Peruvian vacationer blew the whistling in a Facebook post, narrating how groupings of Americans sung the slogan during a cruise.
The story ricocheted around blogs and news places illustrated with likeness of bare-chested, bikini-clad bacchanals around the Yucatan peninsula. Commentators weighed in, most condemning the springtime breakers as humiliating diplomats of Trumpism. Others lauded them for committing Mexico a smell of the bad practice undocumented immigrants brought to the United States.
