‘Real Time': Vicente Fox Says School Shootings Are a By-Product of Racism

Former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, says that tragedies like the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is a by-product of bigotry and racism, particularly the sort that comes out of President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Fox was the mid-show guest on Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher” and, right off the bat, they discussed the shooting that killed 17 people. Mentioning the “very sad event in Florida,” Fox said that “when you speak out of the White House this aggressive violent language, [when] you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get.”

Fox, who served as president of Mexico from 2000-2006, has become an unlikely social media celebrity in the era of Trump thanks to his combative, often profane responses to the POTUS’ repeated demand that Mexico pay for a wall along the U.S./Mexico border. “You can use my words: We’ll never pay for that f—ing wall,” Fox notably said live on CNN in August 2017.

He struck a more calming tone on “Real Time,” saying that “we need harmony. We need love, we need happy communities. And those concepts don’t come out of his mouth.”

That didn’t stop Maher from trying to get an f-bomb out of Fox by mentioning the wall. “So, will you pay that in a lump sum or–?” Maher asked.

Fox laughed and answered, “Do I have to repeat myself?”
