Episode Info: Imagine getting a text from a friend saying "You're internet famous."  Then imagine finding out that it's from a viral meme that you didn't create, know nothing about, and claims that you're a Trump supporter....when you're not. That's what happened to Texan Calvin Ballenger. Now...imagine creating a Trump meme of a crazy looking guy with two assault rifles that goes viral.  Now imagine crazy looking guy with assault rifles tracking you down. That's what happened to me. In this podcast we discuss what it was like for Calvin to become "internet famous," the current political climate, and what people on the border towns actually think about Trump's plan to build a YUGE wall. The picture of Calvin with two assault rifles was originally taken on the set of an independent movie he was working on called "Tejano" by up-and-coming film maker David Blue Garcia. The process of creating this amazingly beautiful independent film is explained here: vimeo.com/174468215 And here: www.indiegogo.com/projects/cast-a-…rom-the-border#/ And here: www.facebook.com/tejanothemovie/?fref=ts Calvin also talks about how people who live on the border of Mexico feel about Trump's plan to build a giant wall.
