Welcome, fellow truth-seekers, to a journey through the labyrinthine world of Mexican politics – via the lens of President López Obrador's daily press conference. Today's menu is a mixture of spicy retorts, historical tidbits, and, of course, a hearty helping of “Who's Who in the Lies of the Week.” Buckle up, porque se pone bueno!
Texans, Tacos, and Televisa
First up, a historical amuse-bouche: Texas' Mexican heritage takes center stage. Apparently, our neighbors north of the Rio Grande weren't always yee-hawing – once upon a time, they were munching on tacos and salsa to the tune of mariachi. AMLO, ever the history buff, dropped this little nugget while chatting with US congressmen, who (bless their Texan hearts) inquired about the whereabouts of Santa Anna's portrait. It's like a telenovela episode where amnesia strikes, but instead of lost lovers, it's national identity on the line.
