‘Shot in the foot of the opposition’
Outside the PSL staff, the president also found anyone who judged the content to be positive. Even without publicly speaking, state deputy Evander Vendramini (PP) assessed that Bolsonaro remains firm in his convictions.
“In my opinion, the president is on the right path, I did not see facts alleged by the former Minister of Justice, Sérgio Moro, only Bolsonaro fighting inequalities and making an effort to be able to govern with such cowardice from the left that he tries every time to denigrate his image with untruths” , said, in response to Midiamax newspaper. The other state deputies and members of the federal bench were also consulted regarding the repercussion of the video, but most of them have not yet commented on the matter.
Vendramini also said that the President of the Republic, according to the video, tries to strengthen democracy, not giving the opportunity for the left to implement a dictatorship in the country like in Cuba or Venezuela. “Because it was a meeting of ministers in which disclosure was not expected, the image of the president was strengthened by the disclosure, he did not deviate 1 mm from his speech, even in a closed meeting.” The parliamentarian assesses the dismissal of ministers. “Ministers seeking self-promotion were dismissed. There was nothing in the video that Moro talked about. He sought personal promotion, a federal judge who resigned to become a minister had bigger plans. Bolsonaro is strengthened and the disclosure to the opposition was shot in the foot ”, he concluded.
