Video creators Greñudo Productions write that No Way, Pendejo! is “a measured and thoughtful meditation on the 2016 U.S. presidential election.” We’re pretty much in agreement, except we’d characterize the baboso Donald Trump as a “pinche pendejo.” [Editor’s note: A greñudo is a person with unruly, messy, unkempt hair.]
