Alfredo Leuco: “Cristina transformed the presidential investiture into a floor rag”
Cristina hasn’t stopped bombarding Alberto ever since she realized that she had made a gigantic mistake by blessing him with the candidacy for president. She and her Taliban K troop have said and done the worst things to him. There is no precedent in democratic political history of such verbal violence exercised against a president from his own government coalition. Friendly fire turned into torture that left the head of state dazed and on the ropes. As revealed by Marcelo Bonelli, Cristina told Carlos Melconian that she “didn’t know that Alberto was so stupid.”
Cristina transformed the presidential investiture into a floor rag surrendered at her feet. She was not enough for him with a puppet. Alberto, crawling on the ground, does not even dare point out the real culprit of being a beaten president. Instead of denouncing Cristina’s coup, yesterday he took advantage of a tweet from the Spanish Chavista, Pablo Iglesias, and pointed against “certain journalism that defames, persecutes and sows discouragement with false news that hurts democracy.”
Alberto is so panicked at Cristina’s omnipresence that he doesn’t even want to register where the bullets are coming from. “Lower your weapons,” he asked.. Let her ask Cristina, if she still has an ounce of dignity left.
This horror film that the poorest Argentine people are suffering speaks more about Cristina than about Alberto. From her corrupt authoritarianism, from her personal pettiness and from the bulimia for power and money that she suffers from.
There are many fallacies and aggressions from Cristina to choose from as a way to define her. I am left with one that was not the title of the newspapers and that for many was just one more anecdote of her permanent fury against all those who do not kneel before her presence. In her place in her world, in El Calafate, Cristina undressed live and direct her heart of stone and his arrogance that mistreats half the world.
I tell you what I mean. The official announcer of the act presented it in the following way: “To conclude, the Excellency Vice President of the Nation, Dr. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, addresses you.”
The unsuccessful lawyer looked at the presenter with a fretful face and subjected her to a humiliating challenge: “For the next time, my dear, never again call me Most Excellent, I hate being called that of Most Excellent. With Cristina and vice president, it’s fine. She reaches and spares”.
There is nothing worse in a human being than being cruel to the weak. It’s almost the definition of cowardice. A humble worker who earns a living as an announcer was subjected to acid rain by the most powerful woman in Argentina. An asymmetry that strips the true Cristina, a kind of iceberg without a soul or empathy with anyone. Getting mad at a person who can’t even answer you is kicking the fallen, the ultimate gesture of lack of solidarity and the arrogance of someone who believes they are above all humanity. She says to the rostrum that she hates being called her, Most Excellent, but she shouts before the judges that she was acquitted by her story. Tell me what you brag about and I’ll tell you what you lack.
For the next dear, never again use that bossy, offensive and insulting tone against the citizens as if they were the subjects of your kingdom. He has already used it a hundred times, against grandpa tie, retirees, teachers who have too many vacations, journalists and follow the signatures.
If you want, you can use those harmful and rude words against the pantyhose who only say “Yes Cristina”. She can and could tell Parrilli asshole, asshole to the president, or putschist to Martín Guzmán. They looked for it.
But for the next time, dear, never again say that those who buy dollars are addicts because we are going to show you the more than 5 million heat-sealed dollars that nobody knows where your daughter Florencia got them from.
For the next time, never say again that history has already acquitted her because she still has to go through the trial and punishment of the earthly courts. Today the allegations began in the Vialidad case where the brave and rigorous prosecutor Diego Luciano will ask for between 5 and 16 years in prison for you, as the head of an illicit association that dedicated itself to looting the state.
For the next one, read carefully the independent journalists who are telling you what is the reality that you refuse to see. Colleague Jorge Liotti, just yesterday, wrote two paragraphs that act as an X-ray of why what happens happens to us.
Cristina was in charge of giving massive attention to Alberto’s alleged intimate chats when in her speech she said that “anyone can see my phone, but others cannot show it.” Christian extortion to the stick.
For the next one, don’t use the double stick so arbitrary. For you, Guzmán was a coup leader with his resignation, but Wado de Pedro and his son Máximo were patriotic with his resignations and pressure. Christian hypocrisy to the stick.
Alberto Fernández today does not own his frustrations or his mediocrity. He is trapped with no way out. And Cristina is her jailer.
