Photographer's Note

I was watching the news on TV when all the channels begun to transmit a presidential meeting about the terrible moment that Covid-19 begun to kill people in Brazil.
In the central part we can see President Bolsonaro, at his left was seated the minister of Health who was speaking about what would be necessary to control the pandemic. At right of the president it was the minister of economy, that was very worried about the damages and at right side of him was Sérgio Moro, the Federal judge who was made minister of Justice after having put in the jail a big group of big politicians and businessmen who were stealing the country.
In the lower part of the TV screen we can read Covid-19 killed the first three people in São Paulo city.
Few days after the Health minister renounced because Bolsonaro didn't believe that lock-downs would be necessary, he had a faith in a miraculous drug who would be enough to cure people and was ever with no mask doing public meetings, at same time the president didn't have interest to buy vaccines with urgency, he guessed the laboratories should to implore to us and sell them for a lower price.
Few days after the president decided to obligate justice minister, one of the most important bases of his government, to use Federal Police to investigate matters about his sons and help them in troubles, and the Sergio Moro abandoned the government. Few months after the supreme court and high politicians in the Congress would put free the former president Lula, as if he was innocent.
After this meeting and 14 months after I see so much things occurred, but the obstinacy of Bolsonaro with the same stupid ideas are the same, we have 450,000 dead people, economy was destroyed, unemployment and little merchants closing doors, while vaccination is slower after he have offended Chinese government, our main commercial partner who was sending vaccines.
At this moment Congress is trying to put guilty on him because his attitude during pandemic and maybe he could be impeached.
Last Sunday he was in Rio with a big group of motorcyclists, with no mask, breaking the rules of State of Rio. He doesn't mind about press, he even hate the press, he don't mind about his words or his image in the world or international relationship. He have strong convictions in his ideas, sometimes stubborn, sometimes, idiot, damaging himself, sometimes being aggressive with his own supporters, losing friends and being used by his sons. He was a rebel military when he was young and became famous to say hard things against the the other politicians or saying extreme ideas.
Democracy can have surprising ways during elections, he was elected because Brazilians were tired of the previous government and corruption and, at same time, when a mad man decided to kill Bolsonaro he was transformed in a victim and used that to avoid the political debates of TV, preserving himself of damages during campaign.
This portrait of a TV screen is only a small moment in our history, in the next year Brazil would complete 200 years of independence and maybe the same thieves who were in the power would be there again, doing the same. Another chance to improve Brazil was lost.
