El Chapo cries after he arrives in New York

He’s not such a tough guy.

Murderous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman appeared scared and teary after arriving in New York under ultra-heavy federal guard in January 2017 to face charges, according to video released by the feds Tuesday.

Biting his lip, his eyes red as he appeared to continually fight back tears, the small-fry cartel killer — who was convicted in Brooklyn court Tuesday and now faces life in prison — was a far cry from the picture painted of him by US authorities as the ruthless head of the world’s largest illicit-drug network.
