Bad Hombres refers to a series of jokes made in response to a comment made by Donald Trump during the third 2016 United States Presidential Debate in which he said "We have some bad hombres here and we have to get them out." The statement sparked jokes on Twitter mocking the comment and Trump's pronunciation of "hombre," which to many sounded like "ombré," a type of hairstyle.


While answering a question about his immigration policy, Trump stated that there were a lot of drug lords in the United States and that they needed to be removed. He concluded his comment by saying "we have some bad hombres here and we have to get them out."


Immediately after, Twitter began making jokes about the comment. Many included references to 80s comedy film The Three Amigos and jokes about his pronunciation of "hombre" as "ombré," a type of hairstyle in which one color gradually blends into another.[1]
