The Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro (65) plays down the corona virus. So far nothing new, but now the “Tropical Trump” caused great outrage with a homophobic slogan!
On Tuesday, at a press conference in the presidential palace in Brasilia, in view of the corona crisis, he called on Brazilians to stop reacting like “fagots”.
The Portuguese word “maricas” is often used as an insult – especially by Bolsonaro. In a particularly friendly way, it could also be translated as “wimp” or “wimp”. But the far-right president has probably never meant it that way.
FACT IS: Bolsonaro has often attracted attention through racist and homophobic statements!
Although homophobia is prosecuted in the country. The Supreme Court surprisingly declared homophobia a criminal offense in Brazil in May 2019! For the president, however, the law does not seem to have any meaning.
The 65-year-old said literally: “I really regret the deaths. But people die every day, from many things. So life is.”
Then to continue:
There’s no point in running away from reality. We have to stop being a land of fagots.
Boom! Another unnecessary saying in a country where the corona virus is raging. To date, over 163,000 people have died of COVID-19 in Brazil – only in the United States is the number higher. But that doesn’t seem so bad when it comes to Bolsonaro.
Similar to the outgoing US President Donald Trump (74), Bolsonaro also made fun of at the beginning of the pandemic and even rejected measures to contain the corona. In front of representatives of the press, he described mouth and nose masks as “a thing for fagots”.
The defense against the helping mask then hit the 65-year-old – just like Donald Trump – very personally. He became infected with the corona virus almost three months ago. In the meantime, like Trump, he has recovered.
