Progressives are sometimes not the brightest bulbs in the box. When the President referenced coyotes during the debate in regard to human smugglers, a potload of Democrats thought he was talking about the wild canine type… including Joe Biden.
“Children are brought here by coyotes and lots of bad people, cartels, and they’re brought here, and they used to use them to get into our country,” he said. “We now have as strong a border as we ever had. We have over 400 miles of brand new wall, you see the numbers. And we have to let people in, but they have to come in legally.” President Trump
And “sleepy Joe”didn’t get it.
“These 500 and plus kids came with parents … coyotes didn’t bring them over. It makes us a laughing stock and violates every notion of who we are as a nation.” Joe Biden
Actually, Joe, you are the laughing stock. If you’d get out of your basement and actually read something beside the comics, you’d know what a “coyote” is regarding human smuggling. But he wasn’t the only one. The 545 children the President’s talking about were separated just before Trump signed an executive order stopping the policy in 2017. Their parents were deported to Central America before a judge ordered their parents found.
Colloquially, a coyote (this usage originating from Mexican Spanish) is a person paid by migrants to illegally guide or assist them (migrant smuggling) across the U.S.–Mexico border. https://t.co/PIbGn4EU4e pic.twitter.com/bH6lh6ZCj2

Human smuggling happens on an industrial scale along the U.S.-Mexico border, bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars each year for smugglers, corrupt Mexican officials, and drug cartels, which charge a per-person ‘tax’ for every man, woman, and child who crosses the Rio Grande in an area under their jurisdiction,” the outlet noted.
“At the height of the migrant crisis in 2019, the number of family units being apprehended at the border was at an all-time high,” it continued. “Smugglers—coyotes—would bring across large groups, sometimes as many as a thousand people at once, and tell them to turn themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol claiming asylum. Nothing like this had ever happened before, certainly not on this scale.”
But, of course, the stupidity had already started.
“Since when did coyotes start bringing kids over here?” @Karlous
“Hot damn, coyotes are so much smarter and capable than I ever gave them credit for. I apologize for underestimating you.” @Sendhil_rama
“Did @realDonaldTrump just say 545 kids they can’t find their parents for came over through “cartels and coyotes”?! How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?! Lord—–stop talking. #FinalDebate @DarshunKendrick (This genius is a corporate attorney)
“Kids came over on coyotes to America!?! Am I missing something?” @EricMetcalf21 (Yes, Eric, a few brain cells short.)
“Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life “Coyotes” The level of xenophobia is sickening.” @davidhogg111
Tonight on blue checkmark twitter, they don’t know what coyotes are.

It’s not surprising that Liberals are clueless about coyotes. Their education was stunted by Common Core and CNN.
