Brazil's new right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro will undergo surgery on Monday in Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein hospital to remove a colostomy bag he has had since he was stabbed on the campaign trail last year, his spokesman said on Friday.

Vice President Hamilton Mourao will assume the presidency for 48 hours while Bolsonaro is in surgery and during his initial recovery. Bolsonaro will have to stay in Sao Paulo for 10 days, spokesman Army General Otávio Santana do Rêgo Barros said.

Bolsonaro lost 40% of his blood after he was stabbed on Thursday, 6 September, hospital officials reported then. Doctors said he suffered a deep and life-threatening wound in his intestines.

Hospital director Eunice Dantas told reporters the following day that Bolsonaro had lost more than two liters of blood, and was in shock, when he arrived. But “he is now stable and in excellent clinical condition” after being operated on, she added, although he will need to spend at least a week in hospital.

Mr Bolsonaro's family said the knife had penetrated 12cm into his abdomen. He was then transferred from Juiz di Fora, Minas Gerais to the Einstein hospital in São Paulo.

    REF: “I don't think he'll risk pissing them off”

    Of course, he won't.

    Rest of the corrupts [+ masses] too may not enjoy the meddling of the Armed Forces. Of course, that may not prevent the Armed Forces at least from trying a stealthy coup.

    Besides, my reply to the question: “Who's going to get rid of him” was, The Armed Forces; obviously because, the Armed Forces would just luv to return back to power.

    And your options were:
    - The corrupt Congress,
    - the former crusading judge who's now a member of his cabinet
    - people who voted to legalise murder, as long as it's of undesirables

    The almighty president may not want to get rid of them but it may also happen that THEY may like to get rid of him!

    You also overlooked a blinking fact that after all, only the nincompoops are destined - have the privilege - of inheriting the Holy Land of Brazil AND the history has ample examples to prove this fact.
