VA few days ago, Jair Messias Bolsonaro had another memorable appearance. The Brazilian President, just as he likes to do, joined some waiting reporters in front of his official residence in Brasília. As always, Bolsonaro, who played down the corona virus at every opportunity, did not wear a mask. It would have been the chance to ask the president what he intends to do in view of the sad record that had become known shortly before: Brazil now has more than 250,000 corona deaths, and that is only the official information. In truth, the number is likely to be even higher.

But Bolsonaro did not stand with the reporters to talk about Corona. Something else was more important to him: On that day, he was talking about the boss of the Petrobras group, the largest oil company in the country, and the topic of home office. Bolsonaro smiled blissfully, then started: “The boss of Petrobras has been home for eleven months without work. That means: He says he works – in the home office. That is unacceptable to me. Imagine if I worked from home all the time. No, the boss has to be on the front lines. ”Next, he let the journalists estimate:“ Guess how much the gentleman earns. Make high estimates. ”The reporters did him a favor, calling out large sums of money. But each time the president waved his hand off, only to say at the end: “The boss of Petrobras definitely earns too much.”
