Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Drops F-Bomb During Live CNN Segment
In an interview on CNN this morning, former Mexican President Vicente Fox ended up dropping an F-bomb while speaking to CNN host Alisyn Camerota, much to the consternation of the anchor.
Discussing the recently leaked transcript of President Donald Trumps January phone call with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and their conversation about the Mexican border wall, Fox repeated a phrase he had stated numerous times in the past.
Well, you can use my words well never pay for that fucking wall, he stated.
As Fox continued to talk, seemingly oblivious to the naughty word he had just spouted on live TV, the look on Camerotas face was priceless. She would then note that she probably should have taken the advice to have a five-second delay for this interview while apologizing to the audience.

This one is priceless too:
And, of course, we have NOT-SO-brilliant reactions from the Dumpsters:
And afterward, John Berman pointed out that her new novel contains plenty of similar language. I hope the FCC doesn't fine CNN for that moment of hilarity.
This is the (unfortunately unsuccessful) show that Aaron Sorkin did after West Wing, and they had a whole storyline about being fined by the FCC because a soldier in a war zone said "fuck" when an RPG exploded over his head.
The scene starts around 9:05 into the episode:
They are hypocrites 80 times around.
The Dumpsters just spout off and have no idea if what they say is even factual, ironically even when criticizing would-be "fake news" stories.
is so infuriating and enraging I think it is damn fine journalism to have the former president of Mexico clearly stating exactly how he feels about this - no delays, no edits!
Good for CNN!
If you want to get rid of foul language in our news interviews, get rid of Trump!
Do we not tolerate the F word on TV yet.....
We tolerate Republicans blatantly lying?
Which is worse?
I would rather her the F word then trump lying about , oh I don't know, collusion with Russia?!!!!!
Where are our priorities?
Our articulate and classy Prezdent told people to"go fuk yourself".
As newt says, "it's modern day prezidentures"
Actually IMO-your 'biggest problem' Mr. Trump are all the corrupt USA border guards and private prison guards- easy to bribe.
#FuckingWall. So Camerota should have known to do a 5 sec delay. But I'm kinda glad she didn't!
Then she realized there might be an "issue" with him dropping the f bomb on live tv. But for sure, she was stifling a laugh. I didn't. Vincente Fox cracks me up. Fooking wall, indeed!
you forfeit the right to be offended by ANY language.
First, you're on cable TV. Anything goes. It is not broadcast television so there are no FCC regulations on speech.
Second, you saw President Fox's videos taunting Trump. That's exactly why you and your producers put him on the air.
Third, how dare you suggest that you would censor free speech? Without that Constitutional guarantee, you and your network would be out of business.
Besides, why would you bleep the word "fuck" anyway? Where is the offense? The real offense is that your network will allow Republicans to spout blatant falsehoods and in most cases, your crew doesn't push back with facts. That is far more obnoxious, nefarious and dangerous than a four-letter word that gets used daily by so many people of all ages.
Lastly, Alisyn, fuck off because you thought it was funny, too.
...comedic timing - just like President Obama.
His videos are a hoot-and-a-half.
