Lilita Carrió is being strongly attacked by many people for holding a critical attitude regarding certain government officials, in spite of the fact that she has always been one of Macri’s major political allies. But, I wonder: why shouldn’t she speak her mind out? If she doesn’t see eye to eye with the President on certain matters and certain individuals, why should she hide it? She’s never been a bootlicker, has she?

A tale by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen comes to mind, “The Emperor’s new clothes”. No one dared tell the Emperor that he had been cheated by the weavers and was stark naked. No one but a child who cried out: “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”. Maybe Lilita is playing that role now.
