    Positively bizarre.

    The most humorous topic thus far this year.

    No, it's not “positively bizarre” nor “humorous topic” but a tragedy for electors who sincerely believed Macri's promises of transparency, honesty and eradication of corruption.
    In less than six months, the new president has demonstrated that truth is a flexible thing that can be twisted at leisure.
    When the Panama Papers first came out, Macri said an off-shore company he was listed on had never been active--which was later disproved.
    Macri is now under investigation after his recent financial disclosure showed 100 per cent increase in just one year: His net worth in 2015 was 110 million pesos--that of 2014 showed 52 million.
    He said he had declared his shares with a zero nominal value under Buenos Aires' disclosure rules but that federal rules forced him to disclose their value.
    However, on Point 9 of his declaration, Macri stated that the difference in value of goods from the first and the last day of the year was “zero.”
    Sad indeed.

    He recently set up a blind trust to handle his financial holdings ,
    one of the three monkeys,

    set up a deaf trust to handle his financial holdings
    and lastly a dumb person.

    Good idea, Lucas.
    Will do it as soon as I'm elected president.
