More like the order of the chicken, suggested a political cartoonist for Mexican newspaper El Financiero.

At least the medal has united Mexicans—in anger against president Peña Nieto, wrote another commentator. “So long cowboy!” he tweeted.

Peña Nieto is already so unpopular, he might have calculated that he didn’t have much to lose by honoring Kushner at such a delicate moment. Or perhaps he simply couldn’t read the room.

Whatever the reason behind the award, critics are taking it as a sign of a rather Trumpian erosion of standards and disregard for protocol. It doesn’t help that Videgaray, who serves on the board that gives out the Aztec Eagle medal, also happens to be friends with Kushner. The two reportedly became close as they worked to stabilize US-Mexican relations.

“The fact that [Kushner] has a work and family relationship with Trump is not a valid motive to criticize him,” Videgaray said in the media interview.
