    Yes, just what a developing country needs, so fucker who's more interested in his own career.

    You'd be better off looking at Britain's "Trump". Boris "me, me, me" Johnson, who decided to go with Brexit at the last minute because he saw the chance to take down Cameron, thereby opening the PMship to a certain BJ guy. Then he didn't get it, instead some witch got in. Then he's quit her cabinet because he thought quitting would take her town and open the PMship to a certain BJ guy.

    He's taking down his own party, destroying his party's own government, not for the interests of the country, but for a guy who's initials basically spell out a blow job.

    He is EXACTLY what Brazil needs and so far looks like Brazilians agree. He's leading the polls.

    And how would you know what Brazil needs, exactly?

    Just because he's leading the polls, might have more to do with telling massive porkies, because people want to believe what they're being told is true, even though they know it's lies.

    Socialists brought Brazil to its lowest point! They need a Trump as President and Rio needs a Rudy Giuliani.

    So your argument is that because you have a party that's not very close to the center on the left didn't work, that you need someone who's not close to the center on the right instead?

    As if there's only two choices, and they're both fucked up. Er....

    Not hard to see why.

    >> Bolsonaro – who has been described as “the most misogynistic, hateful elected official in the democratic world” and possibly the most repulsive politician on earth – is not known as a fan of the ballot-box.

    Since the Pinochet-praising former paratrooper entered politics three decades ago, he has repeatedly called for a return to the kind of military rule Brazil endured until 1985. “I am in favour of a dictatorship,” he boasted during the first of seven terms as a congressman. <<​

    Brasil was under the thumb of a military dictatorship forty-fifty years ago. People still remember that. And not in any way fondly.

    I've still got LP records from that era clearly stamped "broadcast prohibited". Those would be the first ones I'd play on the air. Because fuck fascists. They can sit on my spindle and rotate.

    >> polls showed support for Bolsonaro had plateaued at about 18%, indicating many voters considered him “crazy and dangerous”. <<​

    That's from your own link.

    My argument is that you know less than nothing about anything, especially about Brazil. I have relatives up from Rio and Goias and they're ready for the military to come back in and take over and give the Socialists well deserved helicopter rides. One cousin in Rio wakes up to gun shots, the other had to drive down the wrong way on a one way street at night to keep from gettign car jacked. It's another City Progressives destroyed
