This is the way it is with Republicans. They will run their mouths and thumb their noses at anyone and everyone that will gain them points with their base. When that turns south and they get called on it, it’s time for someone else to defend them. Now, it would appear that all of Trump’s chest-thumping and braggadocio over Mexico is coming back to him.

Notorious Sinaloa Cartel head, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped from a maximum-security prison in Mexico and Donald Trump couldn’t wait to jump on the story for notoriety.

But it looks like Trump may have went over the line when he claimed that he would “kick [El Chapo’s] ass!” because he appears to have gotten the attention of the man himself.

In a tweet from an account with over 300,000 followers, that may be El Chapo, the person behind the account vowed to Trump, “I’ll make you eat your fucking words.”

Proving just how big and “red blooded” Trump is, he called the FBI and asked them to investigate the tweet.

“I’m fighting for much more than myself,” Trump said yesterday. “I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can’t be intimidated. This is too important.”
