So this picture of Rafael Correa, the president of Ecuador, posing with a young boy, is really, really, really, really viral right now. Kyle Stuck @The_Ecuadorian Awwwwww, that's embarrassing... #IAmWithStupidMashi 01:09 AM - 10 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite His opponents have been tweeting it for the last few days with the hashtag #IAmWithStupidMashi, (his Twitter handle is @MashiRafael). borisvian1 @shababaty #IAmWithStupidMashi and #IAmWithStupidMashi and #IAmWithStupidMashi and #IAmWithStupidMashi 02:44 AM - 08 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Fernando San Lucas @capiroparanoico Porque en Ecuador lo hacemos realidad #IAmWithStupidMashi 01:33 AM - 08 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite "Because in Ecuador we make [fiction] a reality." #IAmWithStupidMashi Ponx Ro @Dushi_Ro Porque los niños nunca mienten #IamwithastupidMashi 08:31 PM - 08 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite "Because kids never lie." #IamwithastupidMashi Acción 258 @accion258 Et tu, Segismundo? #IAmWithStupidMashi 04:39 AM - 08 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite It seems some people think this is a CIA conspiracy. LongoColorDeLaTierra @Alfresarpo Niño agente de la CIA intenta destabilizar al gobierno.

Esteban Arévalo @Esteban_Xavier Eight years later and the only thing they have is a ridiculous t shirt and a boy who didn't understand the legend on it. #WeAreWithYouMashi 10:08 PM - 08 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Of course no one actually knows if the boy understood what was on his T-shirt (according to a message purportedly posted online by his mother, he didn't), if the president (who speaks fluent English) didn't realise what it said, or did and didn't care, or indeed anything else about the whole thing. In summary, the only lesson to be learned from this whole debacle is that political Twitter fighting is the worst fighting on the internet.
