Oh boy I shaved my balls just in time for the Brazilian election

"Exeprts" either know exactly which countries have refused to support a coup, because they work in Bolsonaro's office, or else "experts' need to STFU because they are supporting the Big Lie Bolsonaro's coup has been  spreading. The "experts" in the article are pat of the coup, is what I am saying.

I can't wait for Trump to decry his good buddy's loss in his usual sharp prose.

When exactly did Trump cede power though?

Fascism's here and instead of gas chambers and killing fields, it's in the form of currency manipulation and scarcity.

Cede power?

Unfortunately Bolsonaro has the backing of the military almost universally.

So it won't be Jan 6th with a bunch of idiots who believe the lie using flagpoles and stuff, it would be with tanks and small arms.

It's a precarious position.

It'll be kind of weird to see what the cartels do and how much power they have. During the bolsonaro regime's refusal to do anything about the Covid running rampant they stepped up and enforced social distancing, not allowing parties, vaccine drives, etc etc.

And like ~90% of the country got vaccinated.  The Cartels do not like Bolsanaro.  So it will be a weird.... and violent time if Bolsanaro decides to utilize his support from the military to "enforce" the election claims.

shiat could get ugly real quick and the one time I'd root for the cartels.

Everything Trump touches dies.

It's on brand for Trump to slap his name on stupid crap and market it worldwide. Add coup attempts to the portfolio, I guess.

Hopefully, this goes the way of all other Trump products.

I really can't help saying Bolsanaro's name like Canyonero in the song and I'm hoping I'm not the only one.

He left DC at ~9-10am. He was still President until noon on the 20th. The officer flew right back to DC with that bag.

Well literally everyone could have told you that this was the Bolsenero thing that was going to happen. We kinda screamed at you that this was going to happen

They wax down there.

The shave is more of a prison/cartel/favela thing. Generally along the collar, not too carefully, and not too pretty to look at either.

Sure, but unlike Trump he is far more likely to be ripped apart limb from limb and stomped into a mere stain on the sidewalk.

Well... that is if Trump doesn't foolishly try to flee to Scotland trying to evade US authorities.

OCH!

I have an uncle there that rides his motorcycle to his rallies and is generally all in on the crazy.  It kills me because he was one of my favorite people down there.  So much fun to drink beers, BBQ and tell funny stories.

So, which one of them wants to be the other guy? Usually it's Trump looking up to the other, but in this case, Bolsonaro seems to be bringing up the caboose.

It looks like Brazil uses a runoff system for President. So unless the other guy gets 50%+1 today, there will be a second election on the last Sunday of October (30th). I looked at polling and the other guy looked to be hovering in the mid 40s while Bolsanaro was in the high 30s.

Americans might not give too much importance to this election, but trust me, the chances of the future of the planet as a livable place depends significantly on the asshole Bolsonaro getting kicked out of power on this election.

Still kind of early though. About a third of the vote has been counted. Lula was down about 6 points early on, now under 3

Yet they grind exceedingly fine,
Though with patience they stand waiting,
With 'zackness grind they all.

not sure if it's possible for him to reach the threshold where they won't have a runoff. i hope he can because i think the alternative is going to be awful.

Does not seem likely the runoff can be avoided. Lula up by 4 pts with 96.1 reporting

With 98% reported (B-43.5% and L-48%) , it's says mathematically it will have to go to the runoff.
Oh well...
