TELAM - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro made former president Fernando Collor de Mello (1990-1992), who resigned from office in the midst of an impeachment trial for corruption, his advisor and political negotiator. Also, Bolsonaro admitted his estrangement with Vice President Hamilton Mourao.

Bolsonaro himself thanked Collor publicly at an event on Monday night in which he called him an “advisor” for having presented proposals in favor of reducing fuel taxes, a demand of Bolsonaro's base, the autonomous truckers.

The Senator for the state of Alagoas joined the table of advisors after he asked, in January, in a public act next to the President, that the Government must be supported.

The opening towards Senator Collor, whose government was economic opening and reduction of the State, occurs in the midst of Bolsonaro's estrangement with his vice-president, retired general Hamilton Mourao, whom Bolsonaro's supporters and the president's children brand as a traitor for leaking to the press about internal matters.

The incorporation of the former president to the bolsonarista universe means one more step of the president himself towards the opening towards the so-called old politics and is in line with the election of the pro-government Arthur Lira, an agricultural businessman from the state of Alagoas, of the right-wing Progressive Party, as president of the Chamber of Deputies.

With popularity in decline (fell 2 points in acceptance, to 30% and rejection rose to 42% according to the survey of the investment fund XP Investimentos) Bolsonaro managed to make himself strong in the political world by moving away from the anti-system discourse with which he was elected in 2018, allied to the military and part of the Judiciary.

Bolsonaro had recent approaches with former President Michel Temer, who was his special envoy to Lebanon after the explosion in the port of Beirut, but the closeness with Collor according to analysts drives him to seek the vote in the northeast region, largely dominated by the opposition Workers' Party (PT) of former President Lula da SIlva.

Bolsonaro held an off-agenda cabinet meeting Tuesday and only sidelined Mourao, who said he did not feel offended. “I was not invited, I think the president judged that my presence was not necessary.”

On Monday, Bolsonaro spoke by phone with the tabloid police program Brasil Urgente, on TV Bandeirantes, and acknowledged the rift. “With Mourao we recently had an event, we exchanged smiles and nothing more. But it's all good, at the end of the day the vice president is like a mother-in-law, it's for life,” he said.

    Speaking of forming opinions about disagreeable situations...

    The real question is whether Teresa Hill's unique urine therapy is more effective than the Worker’s Party (PT) excrement.

    Since 2015 she has preached the benefits of imbibing her urine due to her bizarre theory it protects her from invasive disease.

    Also, her unusual lifestyle of living in her mother's basement obviously does take the term “social distancing” to the far extreme.

    I would hope however that she and G U I L O T E - G Ü E Ó N doesn't let this romantic opportunity fade away!

    Although she's an unemployed VIRGIN living in her mother's BASEMENT, Güeón can't deny she'd make a marvelous significant partner that could educate him in PERVERSE Latin quotations and he has an incredible appreciation of inflatable sex toys.

    Teresa also has access to an amazing 300+ TV channels and a microwave in her charming mother's kitchen.

    Imagine all the frozen microwaveable commercial garbage that they could feast upon together such as Spaghetti O's...

    (He'll have to adjust to her habitual of drinking her own urine as some sort of health regimen.*)

    And as Güeón can see from the whore's latest post — if he's into the same dirty toilet paper fetish — he'll experience joy!

    G U I L O T E - G Ü E Ó N doesn't let this romantic opportunity fade away!

    Tonight the nighttime low here in Panquehue is forecasted a pleasant 15°c [59°f].

    It’s amusing that Teresa continues weaving more ridiculous lies into her sordid filthy mother’s basement — while pathetically denying her Canadian residence.

    Let’s review a few of the facts established by Teresa:

    1. She resides in the “lower level” of her mother’s home in Canada.
    2. She extolled drinking her own urine (in 2015) saying it was healthful.
    3. She and Jack debated about her falsely claiming to visit Brazil.
    4. She was actually boasting to Jack about her attachment to Long Dong Silver.
    5. She’s weirdly triggered by filthy toilet paper.
    6. She’s a well proven liar about serving in the RAF during the Cuba Missile Crisis.
    7. Apparently she’s transitioned herself to another sexual gender.
    8. She’s clearly identified herself as a closet alcoholic.
    9. She’s unemployed and has access to over 350 television channels.
    10. Her favorite cuisine is prepared in her mother’s microwave.

    There are far more silly subjects — but I’m just amazed she continues.

    Back to the fray.

    It's no use trying to have a debate based on facts, when the potty-mouthed subterranean creature uses '' as his source. Some fools enjoy being manipulated.

    Note : I haven't mentioned any names, yet if it responds, one can say, “if the hat fits, use it”.
