Bolsonaro Threatens the Self-proclaimed ‘President’ of Brazil

The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, threatened to initiate a judicial process against an actor who calls himself the “self-proclaimed president of Brazil.”

The actor José de Abreu, inspired by the Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, made his proclamation at the end of February on his Twitter account and has received the welcome of the Brazilian presidents Luis Inácio Lula Da Silva and Dilma Rousseff.

“As of today I declare myself president of Brazil. As in Venezuela. Lula [da Silva, ex-president] is appointed head of the Civil, Military and Religious House of Brazil, “wrote José de Abreu, who has on his profile a photo wearing a band with the colors of the Brazilian flag.

De Abreu does not remain silent in the face of Bolsonaro’s threats and rejects him: “he can prosecute me, I’m not afraid of him”. In his tweet, the actor adds the ‘hashtags’ that on Thursday revolutionized the networks: #ImpeachmentBolsonaro and #PresidenteGoldenShower.

In addition, he assured that he would take the Chief of State to court for “publishing pornography, idolizing pedophiles, murderers and torturers.” This message is a clear allusion to a video of obscene content posted on Bolsonaro’s social networks.

Since his campaign and then in the Planalto Palace,  Bolsonaro has been characterized by his positions close to the US president, Donald Trump, who has intensified his crusade to end the Venezuelan Government, led by Nicolás Maduro, and put in place Guaidó, considered a “puppet” that will facilitate access to the resources of the Caribbean country.

The presidential autoprama has also been repeated in Colombia , where the writer and artist Alejandro Muñoz was sworn in at the end of February as president in charge of the country in the middle of the street in Bogota, the capital.

But also in the US, Ecuador and Peru this epidemic has been spreading as people’s reaction to the circus style operation of Guaidó’s self-proclamation in Venezuela with the support or direction of the US government.
