President Donald Trump will not be present to serve taco bowls at the White House’s annual Cinco de Mayo party, instead delegating the role of host to Vice President Mike Pence.
According to Politico, the White House will hold the annual affair on Thursday (technically Cuatro de Mayo) in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, located next door to the White House.
Needless to say, the idea of bland Midwesterner Pence as host was greeted with hilarity on Twitter while others wondered how a Trump administration that is currently attempting to build a wall between the U.S. in Mexico will pull off the event.
As one Twitter user wondered, ” Will Mexico be paying for it?”
