Democracy dictates transparency while leaders come and go. Really good leaders are either sworn back into office, or if a country is corrupt, less effective leaders bully their way back in with crude power grab tactics. Putin is a prime example of this.

Another ex-president who didn’t want to let go is Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, the extreme right wing egocentric fanatic who felt he never left office. His supporters still consider him the president.

On 8 January 2023, following the defeat of then-president Jair Bolsonaro in the 2022 Brazilian general election and the inauguration of his successor, a mob of his supporters attacked Brazil's federal government buildings in the capital of Brasília. The mob invaded and vandalized the Supreme Federal Court, the National Congress building and the Planalto Presidential Palace in the Three Powers Plaza, seeking to violently overthrow the democratically elected president of Brazil Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (Lula), who had been sworn into office on January 1st.

By a bakery located near the couple's condominium the former first lady shared with her followers on social networks a 'welcome' breakfast at an event organized Sunday 23rd April.

Among the gifts were baskets with various products, flowers, and personalized condensed milk cans with the face of the former president and the words: 'Our eternal president since 2019'. At the time, Michelle used Instagram to thank the couple's fans.

In a statement, Nestle said it was not involved in the customization and that the product's image was misused by supporters of the former head of state.

Nestle clarified that it did not carry out customization and shipping of the "Leite Moça" cans. The original packaging and visual identity of the product were misused by third parties', said a note sent to 'Terra'.

This kind of attitude pulls the wool over people's eyes, as it motivates others to make biased decisions. However, the Bolsonaro camp has regularly tried to incentive others with false statements.

Have a great day!
