Democrats Slam Pence for 'That Mexican Thing' Comments

Pence said that Tim Kaine kept bringing up "that Mexican thing."

“Senator, you’ve whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence quickly replied.

Kaine honed in on Trump’s remarks throughout the vice-presidential debate, calling on Pence to defend his running mate’s comments.

“You want to use a big broad brush against Mexicans on that?” he asked.

“The Latino community is not forgetting ‘that Mexican thing,’” said Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., the chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Pence’s aside went viral on Twitter during the debate, and users adopted the hashtag to share personal stories about the Mexican-American experience.
