On Friday night, President Trump announced a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the Arizona sheriff who was found guilty of violating a court order to cease racially profiling people of Hispanic descent. Arpaio was Trump’s first pardon and many have voiced their complaints calling it an abuse of the president’s powers of pardon.
One such person is President Obama’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro. Being of Hispanic descent, it is probably a safe bet that Castro does not care for Arpaio’s racism or Trump’s support of such policies. Taking to Trump’s favorite medium, Twitter, Castro made his point with a single word.
“Pendejo” is a Spanish word that is roughly equivalent to calling someone a moron or idiot. Judging from Twitter’s response, Castro isn’t the only person who sees Trump and Arpaio that way. We would say there is probably a rant incoming from Trump, but, honestly, we doubt he knows the meaning of the word.
