This is truly the theater of the bizarre.
The bizarro world.
After a horrific mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, instead of offering condolences, Mexico is threatening to take action….against the U.S.A.
It's unclear exactly what kind of "action" Mexico plans to take against the U.S.A. or why any action at all would be called for.
One thing is clear, if they truly do take action it will NOT be well received in the light of already coping with a terrible situation.

Mexico on Sunday threatened to take legal action against the United States for failing to protect its citizens after this weekend's mass shooting in the border city of El Paso.
Of the 20 people gunned down at a Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall, at least three were Mexican citizens, and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard promised Mexico City will act.
Ebrard called Saturday's shooting an “act of barbarism.”
“The president has instructed me to ensure that Mexico’s indignation translates into ... efficient, prompt, expeditious and forceful legal actions for Mexico to take a role and demand that conditions are established that protect ... Mexicans in the United States,” Ebrard said in a video posted on Twitter.
Of the 26 injured in the attack, at least nine were Mexican nationals, according to the government.
El Paso, America's 22nd-largest city with an estimated population of 682,669, is more than 80 percent Hispanic or Latino, according to U.S. census data. El Paso sits just across the Rio Grande from Ciudad Juárez, which has a population of 1.3 million.
The shooter appears to have been targeting Hispanics and authorities are investigating it as a hate crime. A 21-year-old Texas man was in custody.
