Bolsonaro could, indeed should, be tried for treason

Bolsonaro actually went to an event with ambassadors (thus foreigners) to complain about the electoral system of his own country. Yes, the president of Brazil went to cry his heart out about the Brazilian electoral system to representatives of foreign countries.

Bolsonaro’s “luck” is that he doesn’t effectively expose any flaws or vulnerabilities of our electoral system to foreigners, after all it’s all just imagination of that sick and psychotic head.

But Bolsonaro has chosen to invent vulnerabilities in our electoral system and present them to foreign dignitaries. That is something inconceivable. Whether or not it is something fabricated by him, the fact is that he believes (or says he believes) that vulnerabilities exist and he willingly exposed them to representatives of foreign countries — many of whom may not exactly be friends.

And even if they are, it is simply unacceptable.

Bolsonaro’s inconsequence puts the country at risk — that’s to mention a single case, as this loathsome figure is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people during the pandemic and for various hate crimes.

In any case, this is a humiliation for the country. Bolsonaro is making a fool of himself and of Brazil internationally.

Not to mention the “Brienfing” and just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than “brienfing”, along comes a ridiculous .ppt with three nonsensical questions prepared by someone who failed 5th grade.

Remember, Trump tried to sell the same farce of electoral fraud and it resulted in the invasion of the Capitol. Bolsonaro hopes his coup attempt will be more successful. The institutions look to everything inertly, as do the opposition (or so-called opposition) parties.
