Yesterday infamous Mexican drug lord El Chapo escaped from a high security Mexican prison using an elaborate series of tunnels. A massive manhunt is now underway around Mexico to track down the head of the Sinaloa cartel.
Meanwhile, north of the border, Donald Trump is doubling down on his racist comments about Mexicans being drug dealers and rapists on Twitter:
Meanwhile, on Twitter, El Chapo’s son Ivan has allegedly threatened Trump. There’s no way of knowing if it’s actually Ivan or not, but the tweet to Trump itself reads “fucking make you eat all your bitch words, whitey milkshitter.” TMZ informs the ‘net that “milkshitter” is “a homophobic slur.”

Trump tells TMZ that he’s alerted the FBI about the tweet, taking it as a threat. Meanwhile, also on Twitter:

The joke around town is that I freed El Chapo from the Mexican prison because the timing was so good w/ my statements on border security.
