Jair Bolsonaro sought a scrapped arsenal to try to rebuild his candidacy for reelection. In less than 24 hours, the president went back to looking for a fight with STF ministers, evaded responsibility for problems in the economy, renewed his strategy of intentional propagation of Covid and recycled false suspicions of interference in the elections.
With an anemic performance in the polls, few achievements and an economic scenario that should make his life difficult, Bolsonaro has shown that he has few weapons for the campaign. One of them is already classic: blaming other authorities and even the population for the problems he was supposed to solve.
On the day that Petrobras increased diesel and gasoline for the first time in 2022, Bolsonaro again insinuated that the responsibility lay with the governors. On inflation, he targeted those who respected restrictive measures to limit the mass death of Brazilians. “The guy stayed at home, supported and now wants to blame me for inflation,” he said.
Bolsonaro also updated the policy on the purposeful spread of the coronavirus, hailing the explosion of the omicron variant. The president opposes vaccination and offers no plans to help the country face the increase in infected, but says the new strain “is welcome”.
The wardrobe of the politician persecuted by the powerful was also taken out of the closet once again. Bolsonaro accused ministers Alexandre de Moraes and Luis Roberto Barroso of working in favor of Lula’s candidacy. In addition, it reproduced the false information that there was manipulation of electronic voting machines in 2018 to benefit the PT.
Anti-politics is still Bolsonaro’s favorite expedient. This Wednesday (12), he complained about a past Brazil in which corruption reigned and parliamentarians charged bribes to schedule meetings in government bodies. The president must have forgotten that, at the end of 2020, his son Jair Renan opened the doors of the Ministry of Regional Development to one of the sponsors of his events company.
