Why does this remind me of a “Barney Miller” episode where a protester was brought it and had an American flag patch sewn on the pockets of his jeans? One of the detectives wouldn’t let him sit down.
The administration was trying to head off a potential confrontation, wrongly may I add but as stated above, Cinco de Mayo isn’t really a big deal in Mexico. I just thought 5/5 was just a holiday for Coors beer.
Maybe the thought experiment should include March 2nd (in Texas).
