Just Because El Chapo’s Threat to ISIS Was Fake Does it Make These Tweets Any Less True?

In these dark days, people are DESPERATE for a beacon of hope. So desperate people even endorsed the infamous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán to take down ISIS. Sadly, the people were let down this time.

It all started when an obscure blog posted this story claiming to have gotten the information from a Mexican blogger.

“It turns out a Mexican blogger leaked the message after it was sent email encrypted directly to the Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, a prominent ISIS leader. The blogger has intimate ties with actual Sinaloa cartel members, so it looks as if the warning is indeed legit,” reads the opening paragraph of the blog post.

And it didn’t take long for people to celebrate the news.

A lot of people recognized El Chapo’s unmatched huevos.


People were preparing themselves for an epic show down of brute strength.

For a brief moment, El Chapo was becoming the unexpected and much-needed savior of the people.

He was on his way to becoming the action movie star.

Others, like MMA fighter Tim Kennedy, were ready to enlist in El Chapo’s anti-ISIS army.

A few people saw this as an opportunity to advance their careers in an unstable economy.


A silent minority finally found their voice to give El Chapo some public support.

Things got a little weird here for a minute.

There were doubters, like Spencer Pratt. Yeah, THE Spencer Pratt.
