Sorry buddy, but the world community does not give a sh*t about the elbow bump.
Sorry buddy, but the world community very much cares if the president of one of the world's top 10 economies is capable of conducting a coup or not. As such a thing would destabilize the entire region. The amount of times the topic was raised on this forum alone is proof of that.
so yeah, the elbow pump from Brazil's top military leader does matter.

Again, you give him a lot more credit than he deserves.
He did not create the "health crisis" in Brazil. Yes, his attitude did not help any, and it might have made a terrible situation even worse, but the crisis would have happened with or without him. You can't realistically implement social distancing when tens of millions of citizens live like this:


On top of that, public hospitals were already operating at beyond capacity before this COVID-19 even started.
Once the crisis hit The entire state apparatus went into overdrive to try to contain the virus, as the health ministry, the military, the legislative, state governors, mayors and civil society in general mostly ignored Bolsonaro and went to work doing their best to contain the epidemic.
The issue is that in a country like Brazil, where it public health system is severely insufficient even in the best of days, where millions live in cramped conditions and cannot afford to miss a single day of work, containing the outbreak is simply not possible.
So Bolsonaro or no Bolsonaro, COVID-19 in Brazil will be a shitshow.

Is not it same for Argentina? or basically all of the South American counries and their public healthcare?

In this case a picture REALLY is worth a thousand words. I agree. It's impossible to social distance under these conditions and people cannot stay home and starve. Brazil has a far larger population than Argentina's and worse slums. Bolsonaro did not have many options but denying reality has not helped. Had he been honest some people who were in a better position to use caution might have been more careful. This would be especially true outside the cities where there is more living space.

Oh, I did not mean that the world does not care about Bolsonaros cababilities (or the total lack thereof). Quite the opposite. But not about the elbow bump.

This video of an internal government meeting that the opposition forced to be released might guarantee his re-election in 2022, specially as the lockdown fatigue sets in. The release of this video by the opposition might become one of the biggest political blunders in recent Latin American history.
I have never voted for him and never will, but this video will truly resonate with those average Brazilian and even the average South American who are really suffering with the lockdown.
