    Whether it's El Borracho or La Dama, everyone has their prized lotería card, but a new addition featuring President Donald Trump as "El Pendejo" has quickly become a widespread fan favorite among San Antonio's Fiesta medal maniacs.

The medal which touts the president as a "pendejo," or idiot, was created all in "jest and fun," Gonzalez told mySA.com.

    Has anybody noticed how quickly HUD Secretary Julian Castro has FADED as a possible VP pick for Hillary Clinton? Last year he was considered to be the VP-in-waiting but now we are getting a bunch of stories about possible Hillary running mates, and poor Julian is barely mentioned. I think Julian's fade began with a Politico story a few months ago in which Castro was portrayed as a complete lightweight. Perhaps Team Hillary inspected Julian closely and discovered a Beta Male who would wither in debate with a Republican VP pick. I do know his tenure as mayor of San...
