CDMX.- President Andrés Manuel López Obrador presumed that Marcelo Ebrard, Claudia Sheinbaum and Adán Augusto López are like his brothers.
When questioned about the criticism against the Chancellor for taking a selfie prior to the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the Federal President defended the work of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs by ensuring that he represents him very well.
“He is a very worthy representative of Mexico, he went there because it was up to him, I had to attend to the national holidays here. He represents me very well.”
“The political season has already begun, anything he or Claudia or Adán or any other possible candidate does is reason for questioning and that’s how it will be going forward, but I respect all three of them a lot, they are like my brothers, and others , I have many brothers and sisters and friends and friends… millions,” he said.
“At the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” Ebrard wrote on Twitter yesterday, along with a picture of him and his wife Rosalinda Bueso.
This Monday, the British newspaper Daily Mail published a note criticizing the Mexican official for said image.
“The Foreign Minister of Mexico criticized at home for sharing a selfie of him and his wife at the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth,” was the headline of the note.
Ebrard’s tweet was labeled as distasteful and disrespectful to the Queen.
“How disrespectful to take selfies at the funeral, it was almost there for you to take one with the coffin in the background,” @LunaDeCafe wrote on Twitter.
