Luckily or unluckily, commuters stuck on Mexico City’s highways are seeing the future now. Uber has been sending mini drones with little billboards to hover over DF’s congested roadways to troll drivers.
POCHO amigos songwriters and singers Tapia Corel y Jim Rhodes (aka Partners in Crime) present Trumpón, “…inspired by the antics of Donald Trump, who has continued to defy disbelief, no matter what he says or does.” Los lyrics:
Emilio is a childhood friend of mine who we appropriately call Malo (mean). Usually, Malo and I converse about old times; friends we have lost and experiences we shared growing up.
