Praise and push-ups for Brazil's embattled Bolsonaro


PUBLISHED: 15:49 EDT, 17 May 2020 | UPDATED: 16:01 EDT, 17 May 2020

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro greeted hundreds of supporters - and joined some in a series of push-ups - who gathered before the presidential offices Sunday to back his open-the-economy drive even as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the country.

Demonstrators in Brasilia and Sao Paulo defied local stay-at-home orders to join the pro-Bolsonaro rallies at a time when the president is facing increasing pressure over his handling of the pandemic, which has killed more than 15,000 Brazilians.

"We hope to be free of this question soon, for the good of all of us," Bolsonaro told the crowd in Brasilia. "Brazil will come back stronger."

Bolsonaro later invited a group of about 20 paratroopers, who were taking part in the protest, to join him on the stoop of the presidential office. The men, wearing camouflage trousers, black Bolsonaro t-shirts and red berets, swore allegiance to the president and his family, stretching their right arms, before some joined him in a series of push-ups.

Bolsonaros shouting "derp" together....

Bolsonaro's choice for the image on his t-shirts indicates he believes, like Trump, if posing with crossed arms was good enough for Mussolini, it's good enough for him.

1. Like Trump, Bolsonaro is a ridiculous clown, but we can't laugh because they both

are able to create so much chaos and destruction.

It's a shame that both seem to have Teflon coating as far as cv-19 is concerned.
