Former Mexican president Vincente Fox was the mid-show guest on Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” and right off the bat they discussed the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. And as far as Fox was concerned, the tragedy is a by-product of bigotry and racism, particularly the sort that comes out of Donald Trump’s Mouth.
Mentioning the “very sad event in Florida,” Fox said things like that happen “when you speak out of the white house this aggressive violent language, [when] you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get.”

Fox, president of Mexico from 200-2006, has become an unlikely social media celebrity in the era of Trump thanks to his combative, often profane responses to Trump’s repeated demand that Mexico pay for a wall along the U.S./Mexico border. “You can use my words: We’ll never pay for that f–ing wall,” Fox notably said live on CNN back in August.
He struck a more calming tone on “Real Time,” saying that “we need harmony. We need love. we need happy communities. And those concepts don’t come out of his mouth.”
That didn’t stop Maher from trying to get an f-bomb out of Fox. When asked “the wall, so will you pay that in a lump sum or-” Fox laughed and said “do I have to repeat myself?”
