Who’s the world’s worst leader at handling the pandemic? Easy. Donald Trump. Right? Well, as terrible as Mr. Trump is, a Brazilian YouTube star, Felipe Neto, argues it’s actually his president, Jair Bolsonaro.
Presidents Trump and Bolsonaro have long admired each other’s caustic styles of governance. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the United States and Brazil are the only two countries in the world with over a million confirmed cases of Covid-19. It’s a tight race, and to be sure, neither government should be praised, but the reckless denial by Brazilian leadership is appalling.
Mr. Neto is not normally one to comment on politics. He usually sticks to entertaining his 38 million followers on YouTube with his comedic takes on pop culture. But as the death toll mounts, he’s become more outspoken. And his message isn’t aimed only at Brazilians — it’s also for Americans.
