Mexican politicians spent their annual Christmas party taking out their pent-up rage against Donald Trump. While attendees at white tablecloth-draped tables looked on, legislators from the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution took swings at a piñata modeled after America's president-elect.
Trump and Mexico haven't had the chummiest of relationships so far, after Trump launched his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans "rapists" and "criminals" and then vowing to build a border wall that Mexico would pay for. In fact, for each surge in the polls Trump saw during the U.S. election, Mexico watched its currency's value decrease; after the election, the peso dropped to a record low.
Mexican Sen. Miguel Barbosa insisted the holiday party activity was all in good fun. "We must not take it as a provocation but as it was, a Christmas pre-fiesta that showed the rejection and a way of thinking of many Mexicans," Barbosa said.
