Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine was a broken record, continuously referencing Donald Trump’s comments on illegal aliens from Mexico and trying to make it sound like he had disparaged all Mexicans.
But Indiana Gov. Mike Pence inadvertently had the line of the night when he mocked how often Kaine went to that well.
“Senator you whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence said in retort to one of Kaine’s many references to the topic.
#ThatMexicanThingAgain on a loop.

That was all social media needed to go into a frenzy of hilarious comments.
Pence: “There you go whipping out that Mexican thing again.”
“Mexicans” will be “whipping out” photo IDs on election day.#VPDebate

That would be fantastic. Imagine how much less voter fraud there would be.
I’m going to quit my job, buy a taco truck, and call it Whip Out That Mexican Thing.

3-to-1 odds say that Clinton will make a highly scripted “whip out that Mexican thing” joke at some point in the next two weeks

I give it 3 minutes until #ThatMexicanThing is trending.

It didn’t take that long to trend.

And someone went as far as to register a domain for the phrase and redirected it to Hillary Clinton’s campaign website.

But Steven Crowder brought it back to Earth.
Crazy that the current Democratic ticket talks more about Mexicans than they do Americans. #ThatMexicanThing
