The savagery that took place in El Chapo’s courtroom would make amazing television.
El Chapo and his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, have been blowing each other kisses and supporting one another as El Chapo’s trial moves forward.
She was only slightly phased when El Chapo’s mistress, Lucero Guadalupe Sanchez Lopez, hit the stand to tell jurors about all the drugs she moved for him. She also talked about their extracurricular activities.
She said that they were in bed when US feds and Mexican Marines busted down the door. They escaped naked through a trap door under a bathtub that could only be accessed by connecting wires that would allow it to be opened. He left her in the tunnel to find her own way out after taking off.
The mistress began crying when describing their relationships, saying she thought they were partners. She recounted how they began their relationship when she was just 21, going to make deals and buy large quantities of drugs for him. She then became a politician and continued to use her position to help him.
She was led out of the court because she couldn’t stop crying, at which point El Chapo’s wife began laughing at her. The sobs continued with her mic still picking them out after she left, which sent his wife cackling in pure joy.
Well, at least she’s supportive of her hubby!
