Here in Tulum, Mexico, about two hours drive from Cancun, they don’t lose sleep thinking about Donald Trump, his threats against their country, or his misguided plans to build a southern border wall.
They don’t seem to care much that the President of the United States called many of them rapists and criminals either…with some “good people” thrown in.
In fact, just like the Americans who have flocked to this laid-back beach town for the long Labor Day weekend, the natives would prefer to tell jokes about The Donald — some predictable, some sophomoric, many delightfully self-deprecating— than to spend one minute worrying about the man they call “La Broma En Naranja.” The Orange Joke.
Here are some of the most popular punch-lines about America’s “loco” president:

In Spanish or English, Mexico or America, Donald Trump will always be “La Broma En Naranja.”
