Donald Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, must be making a covert cry for help, as nothing short of desperate confusion could explain a tweet she sent in the middle of the third presidential debate.

During a discussion about his stance on immigration reform, the Republican presidential nominee, Conway's boss, made the baffling decision to throw out a Spanish term to describe undocumented immigrants. "We'll get them out, secure the border and once the border is secured at a later date we'll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we're going to get them out," Trump told moderator Chris Wallace.


After Trump's "bad hombres" comment caused a ruckus on social media, Trump's campaign manager took to Twitter to retweet a compliment of herself and backhanded diss to her boss.
