There has come a time when no one takes Brazilian politics seriously anymore, not even Brazilians.
Reading the twitter account of the @BrazilCabinet, it is clear that its primary goal is very far from keeping the people updated. Instead, its focus is on jokes about the current situation that politicians have put Brazil in. Brazilians have already given up on trying to change the country.
After Bolsonaro, a prospective candidate for Brazil’s presidency, died, coalitions were made to decide on who would be nominated to run for president. In the beautiful pact between PSDB, PP and DEM, Joao Doria from PSDB (Fast track, Sao Paulo!), Sao Paulo’s mayor, was the chosen one. All his mayor campaign was based on lies and fake promises. As for his vice president, Blairo Maggi (from PP) was chosen. He is minister of agriculture and second richest Politician in Brazil (I wonder why…).
This is beyond a scandal, and actually very sad. Probably every Brazilian who has started following @BrazilCabinet in twitter is crying or laughing right now. The only good thing that has happened is Lula’s arrest (we hope he remains in prison). To think about all the coalitions, all the misled decisions, all the corruption that surely is going to come afterwards is truly devastating. Learn to vote, Brazil! Don’t give up! Or we are going to “fast track” forever.
