The Mexican Hashtag that was Trending Topic on Mother's Day

Andrés Mayorquín comments [es] on Se hace camino al andar about the Mexican campaign on Twitter with hashtag #ChingueasumadreEPN [screw your mother, president EPN]:

Via Twitter, the president's mother was insulted, and the hashtag #ChingueasumadreEPN became world trend. An easy way to show discontent against his administration and his policies. Was Ms. Maria Nieto offended? Was she enraged or she took it as a bad taste joke? Which words should the president used to confort her mother this weekend?

The post reviewed here was part of the second #LunesDeBlogsGV [Monday of blogs on GV] on May 12, 2014.
