Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil's President Heckled Off Plane As Angry Brazilians Call Him Out For Covid-19 Mismanagement

WORLD Team Latestly|

Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro was booed by his opponents at the top of their lungs when he boarded a commercial plane to greet supporters. Visiting the southeastern state of Espirito Santo to inaugurate a public works project, Bolsonaro took a moment at the airport to briefly enter a departing plane & say hello. It was all smiles in the roomier, more-expensive front of the plane, as seen in a video he posted on Twitter of himself snapping selfies with passengers and crew. But videos from the back of the coach posted on social media show a riotous scene as passengers waved the middle finger and hurled protest slogans at the president, including "Get out, Bolsonaro!" and "Genocidal maniac!" That is a reference to the president's widely questioned handling of Covid-19, which has claimed more than 480,000 lives in Brazil, second only to the United States. Responding to the boos, Bolsonaro removed his face mask to joke, "Those people saying 'Get out, Bolsonaro' should be traveling by donkey.” Bolsonaro has frequently criticised face masks, lockdowns & vaccines to fight the pandemic, instead touting the medication chloroquine despite studies showing it is ineffective against Covid-19.
