López Obrador, target of the Mexican press on April Fools' Day
The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, was the main media target of the country on April Fools' Day.
The Rotary Reformation, on a "special edition" page under the heading of "Reformed", indicated that López Obrador had been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics and said: "AMLO (initials of the president) with Nobel for contributions economic with model 'Other Data', in which happiness of the town predominates on growth ".
The phrase "I have other data" is widely used by López Obrador in his press conferences when journalists question him about some figures on various topics and he says he has different information.
This newspaper also published a note with the headline "Instauran nueva Virgen Morena (Virgen de Guadalupe)"
"To vent the pilgrim traffic in Mexico City DMX, the Government will promote a replica of the Basilica of Guadalupe in (the municipality of) Macuspana, cradle of the president," he said.
The newspaper El Sol de México published in its electronic edition that "the Maná group disintegrates" and pointed out that the singer Fher Olvera made this decision "due to economic differences with his companions."
The jokes in the Mexican press are common on the Day of the Holy Innocents, in which money or other things are borrowed with the litany "Innocent popcorn that you let yourself be fooled because you know that on this day nothing can be borrowed."
