'The video of the ministerial meeting is a freak show'

a display of how the people of the nation have been abandoned by the government during the pandemic

No, it's not trump, but Bolsonaro's Brazil. The two hour video released by the Supreme Court has caused a sensation. The Court's servers where overwhelmed, leading to the video being generally distributed on social media. Among other things, the cabinet discusses using COVID announcements to hide orders stripping protection. from the Amazon rainforest

Bolsonaro's Foul Language & 'shielded Kin' Admission Add Insult To Brazil's Covid Injuries

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's use of derogatory and foul language during a two-hour meeting has irked the Brazilian political sphere. According to reports, Bolsonaro has been receiving criticism from across the political spectrum for his foul language. The opposition is now hoping this could mark the beginning of the premature end of Bolsonaro's four-year term.

Marina Silva, once a presidential rival, has called his video a "horror show". She tweeted, "The video of the ministerial meeting is a freak show. They are amazing demonstrations of breach of decorum, contempt for institutions, administrative infractions and countless prejudices, such as insults given against indigenous people."

The video could also go as proof of Bolsonaro meddling with the federal police, on which an investigation already is underway. According to the reports, Bolsonaro seems to reveal that he indeed intervened with the police investigation into his family. This could have serious implications for his presidency by providing potential grounds for impeachment as Bolsonaro also seems to confirm claims from his ex-justice minister Sergio Moro that he sought to shield his family from the investigation by meddling in the federal police, as about nineteen of the presidentís relatives are reportedly facing police scrutiny, including two sons, although Bolsonaro denies that is the case.

However, there was no discussion on the COVID-19 crisis which has killed more than 21,000 in the South American country, with nearly 3000 deaths occurring on the day of the meeting.

Sonia Birdi, Brazilian author and broadcaster, remarked as the meeting was a display of how the people of the nation have been abandoned by the government during the pandemic. Brazil has reported close to 331,000 COVID-19 cases, of which 21,048 have succumbed to the virus.


Before the video was published , Bolsonaro's support was 25-30%

Sounds like Brazilians are smarter than Murkans. (I started to type "Americans," but Brazil is American too).
