As some of you may know, last year there was an armed conflict in Culiacan.
A couple of days ago the President flew to Sinaloa, specifically to Badiraguato; El Chapo’s hometown. He was supervising an infrastructure project in the region and decided it would be great to head into town and say hi to El Chapo’s mom. He actually shook her hand, a day after our secretary of health implored Mexicans to have some social distancing measures due to COVID-19
Now, I’m too lazy to find the video, but I’m surprised by two things about it; it looks like her Ford Lobo wasn’t bulletproof, and it also seems like none of the people are visibly armed.
She’s been trying to get some sort of permission to go visit her son in the US, she’s unable to get the visa to go there apparently, which is why she turned to the President of Mexico for help... Through a letter. How fun.
The president had other interesting one liners; last week two governors he was working with caught COVID-19, which spurred interest for him to get the really, really unpleasant PCR test done to see if he has COVID-19. He rejected it, and he also said he wouldn’t quarantine himself because if he went in quarantine the conservatives would try to take away his power....
I don’t know what higher level hidden machinations are going on behind the mediatic curtains the government has established, but it all seems too abstract or too stupid for me to understand.
