Eleben secret service agents were fired and sent home from the summit in Cartagena on the weekend.
They went out boozing and whoring and brought the whores back to their hotel.
Then they started a fight, which made its way out into the street, when the cheap gringo lowlifes refused to pay!
Several other agents are up for diciplinary action for unacceptable behavior, in an unrelated incident but also in Cartagena.
Ansd then ole Hillary put on her dancing apron and hit a bar c alled La Havana to knock back beers and “rumba” (sic—for what looks to me in the video to be a dance of deservedly brief fashion in 1965 called “The Jerk”; probably her fondness for The Jerk has endured since that year—in more than one sense).
gringos don’t know how to behave—neither at home nor in other countries.
Which is why they are called the Ugly Americans throughout this American hemisphere.
