The philosopher and political analyst Miguel Ángel Pérez Pirela recently spoke about the tantrum that the Peruvian television presenter and resident of Miami, United States, Jaime Bayly, had over Juan Guaidó, after he recognized the government of Nicolás Maduro, when signing an agreement from his inner team with the Ministry of Health and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to address the Covid-19 pandemic.
“You had to see the reaction of mayameros like Jaime Bayly. He threw a tantrum, to say the least, and he referred to Juan Guaidó in his program saying: ‘How is it possible that Juan Guaidó falls into the trap of signing an agreement with the dictatorship?’” Pérez Pirela commented on his podcast “From wherever” broadcast by La IguanaTV.
In this regard, he commented that at this time, “the only and last thing that Juan Guaidó can do, in addition to locking himself up and hiding in an embassy, is to reach a certain type of agreement with the national government in political terms, even if it is bad for him.”
“Juan Guaidó, Leopoldo López, David Smolansky, Carlos Vecchio from Washington, Julio Borges from Bogotá (Colombia), lost this battle. They tried to do an assassination and they failed, they tried to carry out a coup d’etat and they failed, they tried to make an attempt to invade Venezuela from Cúcuta and they failed, an attempt to invade Vargas state with mercenaries and they failed, they have failed almost in everything, then they went to the UN and failed. They went to the UN Security Council and failed,” he said.
He stressed that the only thing this group has not failed in by promoting the total blockade against Venezuela, “is to make millions and millions and millions of dollars, frozen and stolen through companies and so on.”
“In terms of real politics, in a year, Juan Guaidó failed in everything. That is why from Miami, Jaime Bayly, who knows little or nothing about Venezuela, what strikes me about Jaime Bayly is that he believes all the lies they say about Venezuela in the US – and here I do not want to deny the problems that Venezuela has – but the cartoon country that Jaime Bayly depicts is the same caricature of a country that is depicted in the United States and in much of Europe,” Pirela added.
