Last Wednesday Alberto Fernández visited Chaco, Coqui Capitanich’s feudal province, and insisted that his administration has handled the pandemic quite successfully. He probably thinks we have already forgotten all about the “Vip vaccine scandal” that led to the resignation of Health Minister Ginés Gonzalez García. Believe or not, Fernández thinks he could be reelected, in spite of all his failures. Therefore, I would advise him not to remind us of this and other scandals (Olivosgate), ‘cause that would go against his own interests. Another piece of advice: please, don’t underestimate us, citizens. Truth to tell, I envy his self-esteem if he really believes he’ll win next general elections. His nonsensical self-delusion is beyond my comprehension.
