STUART VARNEY (HOST): As you saw, and maybe heard, that was a presidential f-bomb from Vicente Fox. Crystal Wright is here and so too is Charles Payne. First of all to you. Crystal Wright, what do you say to that? Presidente Fox drops it and in the same sentence invokes Joe Biden who also used the f-word in a very whispered conversation with President Obama a couple years ago. What do you make of Vicente Fox?
CRYSTAL WRIGHT: You know what I make of Mr. Fox? Maybe he should keep his Mexicans in his country so we don't have to pay for them illegally hopping over the wall here in the United States and refusing to leave. It costs us a lot of money, it costs us a lot of jobs, Mr. Fox. I'd have a few choice words for him. But I think it's really, it's funny because, you know, no conservative could get away with dropping the f-bomb, but it's OK for Biden. Its OK for Mr. Fox. And Trump will make, you know, he's going to build a wall really high. I think we saw that last night, And we're going to reduce the trade deficit with Mexico. Oh, you know, it's what $60 billion, Stuart? Ridiculous.
VARNEY: Yes, it's quite a lot of money I do believe.
VARNEY: Charles, look, I'm kind of laughing. I'm treating all of this lightly. I don't think I should. I think that there's a coarseness in public life these days. Donald Trump did it. Joe Biden did it. Vicente Fox did it. I'm not happy about this.
CHARLES PAYNE: I'm not happy with it either. You know, I think there's a certain amount of decorum that you should have, particularly as a leader of a set of people. I will say, though, and I said this last night on my show. Vicente Fox always rubbed me the wrong way. He is an arrogant S.O.B. He really is, when he was President Mexico, I remember him riding around on his big white horse and always bitching about America and how we were the problem because we were buying the drugs that they were smuggling into this country, that somehow we were the reasons for those massive drug cartels, and their terrible economy that somehow we were.
